CURRENT ISSUE - September 2016
Among the articles in this special issue, introduced by associate editor Dawn Bakken, are Jacob Piatt Dunn’s 1911 “The Word ‘Hoosier,’” one of the first thorough historical examinations of the word. Oscar Short’s 1929 article offers one family’s take on why the word might have originated among the men who worked the canals and rivers of the state. Moving forward to the work of William Piersen and Stephen Webb (from 1995 and 2002), readers can consider the possible link to the life of itinerant Black Methodist preacher Harry Hoosier. And in two articles by Jonathan Clark Smith, the twenty-first century digitization of historic newspapers reveals the current contender for the earliest appearance of the term: a newspaper article from the Vincennes Gazette of February 1831.
