I am looking for anyone who might be able to put me in touch with Ken Little or Fr. John McNalis, authors of "History of Chicago Firehouses of the 19th Century Vol.I", and "History of Chicago Firehouses of the 20th Century Vol. II" to try and found out how I would go about obtaining Volume III of this series, and also Volume IV if it's completed. Volume I and II are excellent, excellent books, and I would like to complete the set, but online searching to try and find them has been fruitless. It is my understanding Mr. Little is a retired CFD dispatcher and both he and Father McNalis are active in the Chicago fire history community and I was hoping someone on here may know them through that route. If anyone can help me, contact me through the email addy under my name. Thanks!

That was good intell, ADSNWFLD: I called the number on the link listed for the Fire Museum of Greater Chicago, and they in turn put me in touch With (Father) John McNalis, who gave me the information to order a copy directly from him. It's $50 with $7 for shipping. He also told me Volume 4 is in the works, but it would be a little while yet before it's out. So if you'd like a copy of Volume 3, you can either call the number on the website, or email me and I will give you ther address I sent my order to.
