from the pages of the Waukegan Daily Gazette 17 February 1906
If the facts in the case are any evidence Lake county men were never very enthusiastic about the affairs of their own county, as only four and at the most liberal estimate six histories of Lake county have been printed.
Some time ago the Gazette presented the list of two included in the bibliography of the state's historical library.
There are four others.
The first history of Lake County is a small affair of a few pages bound in paper covers, the compilation of that famous political figure, E. M. Haines. It was printed about 1852.
A few years later Mr. Haines amplified the same work and brought it out again from the Bradbury press. This was in the seventies.
In later years Col. C. A. Partridge has assisted in the compilation of two exhaustive works on the county in connection with state history.
These, as far as is known, complete the list.
Perhaps the most exhaustive history is the Gazette file, which extends back for half a century and which is the most valuable document historically in the county.
