- Unaware of other events taking place around town, Jordan continued looking into his family history, finding record of a man named "Albert Fitzgerald", who was a turn-of-the-century newspaper editor in town, and perhaps something of a historian.  Jordan wanted to look at some of the old papers, but had trouble finding them online.  He did happen to know, however, the the Public Library had reproductions of the city's papers going back over 100 years.
