I'm an amateur historian. I like to learn about things from the past. The history of cigar making in Iowa is of particular interest to me. I have written books documenting the rise and fall of cigar making in Iowa. Cigar boxes are beautiful works of art. They are a glimpse into the lifestyle of society.

Please contact me if you have questions about cigar manufacturing in Iowa. I am especially interested in getting pictures of cigar boxes from Iowa. Any pictures of cigar factories would also be appreciated.

Thank you,
