Midway Historian to Talk About New Book

Historian Dave Kent will talk about his new book “Images of
America: Midway Airport” at a Clear-Ridge Historical Society event set for 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 22 at the Clearing Branch Library, 6423 West 63rd Place.

Kent is a founding member of the Midway Historians.

According to CRHS, Kent's book "...captures the ethos and thrill of the Midway experience during a time when people
Rock Hudson at Midway, 1955.
dressed up for air travel or just visited the airport, dined at the Cloud Room, and gazed from Midway's observation platforms at the incredible aerial ballet before them."

Admission to the event is free, and the Society encourages everyone to join. For more information, call the library at (312) 747-5657.
