129 High-powered community committee got UIS going

A committee of fifteen people called the Committee for Higher Education in Central Illinois led the way in the 1960s to raise $1 million to buy the land for a community college (Lincoln Land) and university (Sangamon State, now called UIS). A resolution forever remembering these fifteen people hangs in the Hatmaker Room at UIS.
