Artifact of the Month

This artifact in the museum's collection is currently on exhibit at the museum in the Cabinet of Curiosities' "From slate and stylus to computer and calculator" exhibit.

We think this is part of a Cross Country uniform that would have been worn by high schoolers in the fall when students ran cross country. Could it have been worn by William May?

William May qualified for the Illinois state championships in 1904/1905. Not only did he qualify, he won the 50-yard dash tying the worlds record as a high school student. And this is his picture.

We have no information about the uniform in our museum records. Anyone out there know anything about this wonderful artifact?


The Mission of the Flagg Township Historical Society and Museum is to stimulate interest in Flagg Township history through education, research, collection and preservation of information for the benefit of the public of today and in the future.
