Featured Books

Moravia and Its Past
by Leslie L. Luther

This is a long-awaited reprint of Mr. Luther's exhaustive history of the Moravia area, prepared for publication by Mr. S.T. Joshi.  It has been set in a new easier-to-read typeface using state-of-the art printing techniques with corrections to some apparent typographical errors.  The index has been entirely recompiled, and emphasis has been placed on indexing nearly every name, place and business.  While this edition is a high-quality hard cover book, we are making it available to our members and the public at a very reasonable cost.

The Drum Major of of Company A
by Frank Foti

Colonel Speck, deserves a place of honor in the pantheon of Moravias celebrities alongside Millard Fillmore, Jethro Wood, John D. Rockefeller, Dr. Cyrus Powers and others. A celebrated midget, Speck lived a grand and fascinating life across a broad spectrum of careers. Possessing extraordinary musical talent and acting ability, he entered show business at the tender age of sixteen. Speck toured the country as a member of the famous Liliputian Opera Company for five seasons. Following his retirement from show business in 1884, he returned to Moravia and became one of the towns most beloved community and business leaders.
