Ladwig/Wade Collection Donated to WIU Libraries' Archives Chronicles Family Divided by World War II

November 7, 2016

The collection of more than 300 photos and images features historical military photos from WWI and WWII, as well as images of individuals in the British Women's Land Army.

MACOMB, IL — It's a tale of a German family divided by World War II—some were victims of the Nazis, some of them were sympathizers with them. It's also a story that chronicles how some of these individuals and their descendants wound up in western Illinois and owned and operated the Monmouth (IL)-based Western Stoneware Company. And, thanks to David Wade, his wife Linda, as well as Bradley Wade and his partner Darren Coleman, and through Western Illinois University Libraries' Archives and Special Collections, the story is online for everyone to see. The family members have donated the Ladwig/Wade Family Collection of more than 300 photos and images of memorabilia saved over the years.

 The collection — currently available organized in nine online folders (http/tinyurl.com/nk4pnj9) — noted Linda, who works in WIU Libraries' digitization unit, is important not only because of the unique historical background of the family—many Jewish members of whom immigrated to England, Canada and the U.S.—but also because of the sheer amount of content included....(for more follow link below)

Linda and David noted, over the years, Western Stoneware (abbreviated as WSCo) had merged with other western Illinois pottery and stoneware companies, including Monmouth Pottery, Macomb Pottery, Macomb Stoneware Company, Weir Pottery, White Hall Pottery, Clinton Stoneware Company and Fort Dodge Stoneware. Although the Wade family sold the company in 1973, today, Western Stoneware is owned, once again, by the Wade family. Linda and David purchased it in 2014.

 "WSCo dates back to 1859 and has deep roots in Macomb and Monmouth," the overview document states. "As owners of this regional historic company, we thought our family history would be of interest to historians and researchers in the area and beyond. In addition to the pottery that was made in the area, the clay used to be sourced from Colchester. But, eventually, the mines went dry," Linda said during an interview with her and David at Western's Leslie F. Malpass Library.


The "Ladwig/Wade Collection History" overview document includes much more detail about the fascinating historical images found in the collection.
