Excerpt from Publications of the Nebraska State Historical Society
The first volume of Nebraska Constitutional Conventions is just from the press and laid upon the desks of the members of the thirtieth session of the Nebraska legislature. Its reception has been generous and funds seem assured for the completion of the series. The prospect now is that four volumes will be required.
It has been found impracticable to send proofs to surviving members of the convention and await their return before printing Instead, every living member will be sent a copy of each volume, as soon as printed, with earnest solicitation for corrections and recollections suggested by its perusal. These will be gathered into notes in the final volume.
Part of the plan for these volumes is to illustrate them with a complete set of portraits of the members of the constitutional convention. Besides these, there will be illustrations of the early Nebraska Capitol and a few other characteristic early pictures. These are being gathered for use in the volumes which will follow.
The band of survivors of 1871 has grown smaller while proofs were being read. Since work began upon these volumes there have gone from our midst James M. Woolworth, and James E. Boyd, of Douglas county: John Wilson, of Johnson county: Alfred L. Sprague, of Seaunders county; Beach I. Hinman, of Lincoln county. The following is the list of the living members with their present address
Othman A. Abbott, Grand Island.
John C. Campbell, Tabor, Iowa.
John N. Cassell, Aurora.
Pelham S. Gibbs, Tekamah.
Nathan K. Griggs, Lincoln.
Edwin N. Grenell, Ft. Calhoun.
Isaac S. Hascall, Omaha.
J. A. Kenaston, East Chattanooga, Tenn.
