St. Louis Post-Dispatch 1997

The tradition of the Illinois State Society Inaugural Gala has been to send invitations and sell tickets to many people from Illinois even if they are not members of the society. This article from The St. Louis-Post Dispatch in January 1997 even extends the invitation to Missouri residents on the west side of the Missippi River for the gala and ball held on Jan. 19, 1997 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel to honor President Clinton's second inauguration.
