Echoes of Purple and Gold with Jack Keefe

Keefe attended Bloomington High School and went on to have a successful journalism career in television and radio. He also wrote a daily column in the Pantagraph "How Time Flies" for fifteen years.
The book has been described as "a gripping work in which the author stacks local history like cordwood, telling forgotten tales and making odd connections that people no longer suspect."
