Peotone: The Collections
The Radtke Collection
Ed Radtke, like many others with collections, has now retired from farming and his son Danny has taken over the reigns.  Not many artifacts got by Edís far-sightedness in the days when he was out there plowing the fields.  Everytime he saw a point or scraper from atop his tractor he would stop and retrieve whatever the treasure was.  Luckily Ed remembers where he found that beautiful Clovis point and we are now going to make sure it gets registered as a Paleo site.  Edís
Clovis has created a bit of a stir and it will be measured and illustrated for a current study of Paleo sites in the state of Illinois. 

Thanks for sharing with everyone, Ed!
