Did You Know? 1976.

In 1976, the Iowa City Lion’s Club took it upon themselves to publish a book by one of its long-time members – Irving Weber. The book was called Irving Weber’s Iowa City and it included 102 short stories that had originally been published by the Iowa City Press Citizen. Irving Weber’s first article from his first book, written in a quiz format, focused on the most prominent landmark in Iowa City… the Old Stone Capitol.
