The Indiana Magazine of History documents and investigates the changing culture of Indiana and the Midwest. The editors welcome original, critical writing or annotated primary documents that highlight the challenges faced by past residents of the state and its surrounding region, that add historical perspective to contemporary issues, or that deepen public understanding of historical thinking and its application to our region.

The author’s name should not appear on the manuscript, nor should his or her identity be revealed in the notes. Refer to the Chicago Manual of Style for further questions regarding style and format.
