Volume 13 - Summer 2006/5766
 This 55 page volume, dedicated to Irv Sherman, is a collection of interviews of people with connections to South Omaha.  The stories begin with new Americans drawn to South Omaha because packing houses needed workers in the 1890s to the 1930s.  Stories continue with Jewish entrepreneurs and their children telling of their ownership and innovations in independent meatpacking operations in South Omaha beginning soon after World War I until current times.
