Scope and Contents of the Materials

These records partially document the history of the Lanan Farm in Kingston, Illinois from 1848-1978.  Although few records in this collection deal with the early history of the farm, several land indentures and grants provide details of farm land transfers in the mid-nineteenth century.  The major series of the collection is a complete set of farm account books (1915-l978) detailing various business transactions of the Lanan farm.  These volumes contain extensive information on annual agricultural income and expenses for items such as livestock, crops, machinery, labor, taxes, and insurance.  Two other account books record crop threshing expenses and list workers hired for the threshing seasons (l89l-l942).  Also included in the collection is an account book kept by Henry A. Lanan while he was treasurer for the Kingston Mutual Fire Insurance Company from 1911-1939.           

  An addendum added in 2011 documents the daily administration of the farm from the early 1900's to early 2000's. The addendum is divided into ten series. Series one contains personal items from the Lanan family, including correspondences that details the family history. Also included are Guy Lanan’s diploma and a textbook and materials from an Animal Husbandry class at the University of Illinois. Series two holds legal correspondences and the estates of Guy and Henry Lanan. Series three contains title transactions, including an abstract of titles the details the history of each parcel of land. Warranty deeds from the United States to various owners dating from 1848 are kept in this series.                 

Series four holds insurance policies and payments from several companies. Series fives details taxes paid by the Lanan, including personal property, real estate, income tax, and employees’s returns. Series six contains financial information. Checking and saving accounts, loans (security agreements), trusts and balance books are available in this series.                                               

Receipts make up series seven. These receipts pertains to all purchases made for the farm. Those marked “Bills” and arranged chronologically were minor, day to day purchases. Those listed alphabetically were for large purchases for the farm, such as equipment, livestock, fertilizer, and other services. Series eight contains DeKalb AgResearch materials. Included are contracts, statements, receipts, orders, and delivery statements.

Series nine contains numerous magazines, including several interviews with Joe Lanan. Also included are operating manuals for equipment on the farm, soil test results, and material printed by the DeKalb County and Illinois Valley Farm Bureaus. Series ten contains financing and regulation material from both state and federal departments. A majority of this information comes from the United States Department of Agriculture, but there are also documents from the Departments of Labor, Conservation, Public Healthy, and Transportation.

Persons interested in the administration of farms will find that the Lanan Farm Records provide comprehensive information on yearly business activity of a twentieth-century northern Illinois farm.

Collection Historical Note

Born on January 27, 1895, the son of Henry A. and Martha (Uplinger) Lanan, Guy Lanan devoted his entire life to administering the family farm in Kingston, Illinois.  He later supplemented his farm income by becoming an income tax accountant.  In addition to his farming duties, Mr. Lanan served as a Kingston Grain Farm Co-op board member from 1934-1953.  Active in several community organizations, he belonged to the DeKalb County Shrine Club and the Kirkland Lions Club.  Upon the death of his first wife, Sarah Eckhardt, in 1941, Guy Lanan remained a widower for ten years until he married Nellie Sherman in 1951.  Guy Lanan died on November 19, 1979, at the age of 84, survived by his wife, seven children, nineteen grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. Joe Lanan, son of Guy and Sarah, then took over the administration of the farm.       

Born October 25, 1924, Joe Philip Lanan attended Kingston Schools and graduated from the University of Illinois in 1949. He served in the United States Air Force during World War II and was stationed in Scotland. He married Catherine Rakas on August 15, 1948. He farmed in Mayfield County for many years and was a seed corn dealer for DeKalb Ag for twenty five years. He retired from farming in 1994. Joe Lanan contributed to his community throughout his life. He served as a member of the Sycamore Unified School District 427 for ten years as well as a regional school board member for ten years, becoming president for both boards for five years each. Lanan was also a member of The DeKalb County Farm Bureau, on the board for Mayfield Township, a 4-H leader, and for fifty one years was a member of many boards and committees for the Mayfield Unified Church of Christ. Joe Lanan died July 28, 2006, at the age of 81, survived by his wife, three children, seven grandchildren, a brother and a sister.
