The Sutton Historical Society contributes to
the two local Sutton publications
The Clay County News
Clay County in the Rear View Mirror is a weekly retrospective column with excerpts from Clay County newspapers 25, 50, 75 and 100 years back from the current week. We draw on papers from Sutton, Harvard, Clay Center, Fairfield and Edgar plus others when we can find them.
We attempt to balance items from throughout the county. We are on the lookout for items about the opening and closing of businesses, items of interest about individuals and news that reflects cultural, economic, social and living conditions that are distinctly different from the current situations. We are especially attracted to items that cause people to say, "I'd forgotten about that." or "I never knew that." or "That happened here? Surely not." or "That can't be true." or .... well, you get the idea.
We thank Ted Gill, Publisher and Tory Duncan, Managing Editor and the Clay County News for this outlet for the stories about the past of Sutton and Clay County.
Sutton Life Magazine
Memory Lane in Sutton Life Magazine is a monthly article about some aspect of the history of the Sutton Community. The ideal articles are those that feature some significant person or event in Sutton's past that has fallen through the cracks of our collective memories. Most of these persons and events are directly related to the Sutton area but some have a Sutton connection but had an impact elsewhere or on a larger scale.
Most of these Sutton Life Magazine articles later appear as postings on this blog. We thank Jarod Griess, Mustang, Inc. and Sutton Life Magazine for providing the Sutton Historical Society with an outlet for these articles.
