ball "mismatch" Saturday in Chica-

'Father Dearborn'
o Be Resurrected
In New Publication
"Old Father Dearborn" is coming
t4 life again. The journals of Hen-
ry Dearborn, called "Father" by those
who revere him as the founder of

a portrait of him. Lloyd A. Brown,
curator of maps, and Howard H.
Peckhar, curator of manuscripts at
the Clements Library, are editors of
the book which will be published
in early December.
The only journals known which.
run for the complete duration of the
war, Dearborn's diaries are the more
interesting because they are an on-
the-scenes account of the battles.
