A Bumper Hemp Crop and A New Hemp Mill
From the July 18, 2018, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1943, 75 Years Ago.
"Construction work has started on the new hemp mill to be erected at Kirkland, cement has been poured and the surveyors are finishing up their end of the work at this time.
"It was stated that at the present time there is hemp to the north of Kirkland that is outstanding and is seven feet in height. Any number of acres that are planted to hemp in the north end of the county measure five feet in height."
Don't Bogart That Hemp for the War Effort. --GreGen
