Hot Type reviews the top 150 news stories in the first 150 years (1852-2002) of print journalism in Champaign-Urbana. It's an eye-opening account of a community that not long ago was far different than the university-dominated place it is today. Hot Type reviews sensational courtroom dramas, the stories of fires and other natural disasters, the rapid development of the community in the 1920s, '50s and '60s, its near-lawless attitudes in the 1930s, and some of the great leaders and colorful characters.
