About this title

Synopsis:

This North-End Story Never Before Told. The North-End of Springfield, IL grew as the town grew and developed into being the industrial base of the new state capital. With it was the immigration of ethic groups like Germans, Italians and Irish. Thus begins the story of that vibrant community and its high school.How could it be that Lanphier High School has never been written about in detail? Although three-quarters of a century old, Lanphier has been unknown in the entirety of its history-until now. The same can be said about the neighborhood it resides in. Mitchell describes the North Enders as hard-working, lower-middle class people from many ethnic groups who created the hard-to-define "North-End character." In North-End Pride: The Story of Lanphier High School, Its People and Community, you will discover: · The uproar over tearing down Reservoir Park, the Jewel of the North End · The birth of Lanphier High School in the Converse School building · How Pillsbury Mills, the Watch Factory and the Meter Works gave the North End vitality, prosperity and identity · A never-before intimate look at Robert C. Lanphier, co-founder of Sangamo Electric and the high school's namesake · Some well-kept secrets of LHS-from the streaker who saved the school, to a staff member who won the Lottery, to a student who gave his life for a classmate · A look at the sung and unsung sports heroes and their coaches
