About Talking Hoosier History
Join us on the first of every month for a new episode of Talking Hoosier History featuring a significant person or event in Indiana History. Each episode is based on research conducted by Indiana Historical Bureau staff and features newspaper articles from Hoosier State Chronicles
, Indiana’s digital historic newspaper database. The project is operated by the Indiana State Library with financial support from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services along with the National Endowment for Humanities’ National Digital Newspaper Program.
Lindsey Beckley is a born and raised Hoosier. She attended Ball State University, where she obtained a degree in public history. She fell in love with history after a visit to Connor Prairie in 4th grade and made it her life goal to work there one day. Directly after college, she achieved that goal and so everything since then has been icing on the cake. She joined the IHB team in 2015 and has loved having the opportunity to learn all the unique stories the history of her state holds. Now, she’s beyond excited to bring those stories to you in her favorite form of media, podcasts.
