The date selected for Iowa his- ory week this year is April 20-25. The general theme · is "loway to :owa," taken from the title of Irvng B. Richman's latest volume, 'loway ,to Iowa: the Genesis of a 2orn and Bible Commonwealth," which was recently published by the State Historical society of Iowa. Copies of the book have already oeen distributed to public and college libraries in the state. . This is the sixth annual Iowa history week. The purpose is to call the attention of the people of Iowa to the history of their state ant! local communities. The plan of setting aside a special wee{6 for this purpose is sponsored jointly by the State Historical society of Iowa and the Iowa Federation of Women's Clubs. The subject chosen for the firjt Iowa history week in 1926 wua "Iowa"--its beginnings, Indiana names, seals, songs, mottoes, ani banner. In 1927 the theme centerec around "The Pioneers," and in 192f the subject was "The Indians of Iowa." "The Past at Play" was thi. theme in 1929, and in 1930 the topic was "Iowa and the Nation." Clubs Participate. This year the more than 900 women's clubs in the state havt been invited to prepare programs based on "loway to Iowa." It is also suggested that high schools plan special assembly programs for Iowa history week and that service clubs, wherever possible, make a place for Iowa history on their programs during this week. As an aid in the preparation of these special programs the State Historical society of Iowa has devoted the March number of "The Palimpset" to excerpts from Mr. Richman's book. Copies of · thi i number have been distributed to members of the society, public and college libraries, presidents of women's clubs, and principals of high schools thruout the state. Has Three Phases. The appearance of "loway to Iowa: the Genesis of a Corn and Bible Commonwealth" calls attention to a new period in historical writing in Iowa, for Iowa history, like all other history, has had three phases or stages. First of all, of course,-the events themselves must happen. These events usually leave some more or less permanent record. This record may be some physical change, such as the fall of recks at Niagara Falls or the construction of the Panama canal. It may be a written or printed record of the event. It may be only tho ephemeral change in the brain of a contemporary which we call memory. The next step in the writing of history is the collection of all the records about a certain event. Tiiis is research. The research historian is interested primarily in facts, all the facts. Reminiscence is the assembling of facts from memory The prooagandist. unlike the research historian, is interested only FOR D. A. R. POST Press I'hoto MRS. WALTER C. JOHNSON of Chattanooga, Tcnn., was indorsed by the Tennessee Daughters of the American Revolution for the office of national vice president general. The election is in April. in finding facts which support his claim or decision. In Literary Form. The third step in writing htstory is the presentation of the known facts of history · in literary form with a philosophical interpretation of their meaning. Perhaps no better example of .this style "of historical writing can be found in Iowa than Irving B. Richman's new book. History, however, is never.static, never finished. Like an endless tapestry in the loom it unrolls from day to day, showing hew patterns or carrying on the old. The. men and women who make history often do not see the design they help to weave. To them it is only a tangle of threads and knots, a confusion of colors. In "loway to Iowa" Mr. Richman .turns the tapestry so that we see. the motif of early Iowa history and the blending of the colors which make this "Corn and Bible Commonwealth." Readings from "loway to Iowa" have been broadcast from 2 to 2:30 on Friday afternoons during March from 'station WSUI at Iowa City. These, it is planned, will continue during the early part of April and en April 20 Hamlin Garland will broadcast two addresses.
