Description: The Winter 2020 issue of GOLDENSEAL (now available) delves into a wide range of stories about West Virginia history and culture. The cover story is dedicated to dancer, artist, author, and teacher Jude Binder of Calhoun County. Douglas John Imbrogno’s article highlights her work with children in central West Virginia as part of Heartwood in the Hills, a school for the arts she founded in 1982. She’s inspired more than a generation of young people to discover the importance of the arts and to live out their dreams, wherever those dreams may take them. Other articles look at the Mountain Craft Shop, “Wetzel County’s only amusement park,” in the words of owner and chief toymaker Steve Conlon (by Zack Harold); apple butter making as a family tradition in Hampshire County (by Tina Ladd); a little house with a lot of special memories on the campus of Shepherd University (by Carl E. Feather); the fight for women’s suffrage in the Mountain State (by Christine M. Kreiser); Raleigh County’s mysterious Ferguson Rock (by Merle T. Cole and Tom Sopher); tributes to the old WVU Field House in Morgantown (by Norman Julian) and growing up listening to Mountaineer basketball on radio (by John A. Hunter Jr.); the burning of the state capitol in January 1921 (by Stan Bumgardner); the poem “The Many Mamaw Melitas Who Raised Us” (by Andréa Fekete); doodlebugging in Barbour County (by David Ball); a tribute to Jack Corder of Doddridge County (by C. Lee Corder); a virtual tour in and around the Preston County town of Aurora (by Donetta Sisler); and a visit with scrap-metal artists Ken and Joy Sinsel of Hancock County (by Carl E. Feather). In this issue, GOLDENSEAL also honors West Virginia’s in the fields of history and arts who we lost in 2020, including state folklorist Emily Hilliard’s tribute to Lincoln County’s Elaine Purkey, a folk-singer, labor songwriter, and teacher who touched countless lives.
