Indiana Ragtime
By John Edward Hasse and Frank J. Gillis, producers

The era of ragtime was the time of the Rough Riders and the Wright Brothers, of suffragettes and progressives, of the Titanic and the Lusitania, of the St. Louis World's Fair, of "spooning" on the front porch, of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." In Indiana, the era of ragtime was the time when the public lionized James Whitcomb Riley, when Penrod and Abe Martin first captured audiences, when Hoosiers climbed aboard the new interurban railways, when spectators cheered the first Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, when "On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away" became a national hit. This digitally re-mastered two-disc set includes a thirty-two-paged full-color booklet.

CD, 99 minutes. Indiana Historical Society, 2003. ISBN 0871951703.
