Some of you that participated this past Saturday in Historic Preservation Week may have received this limited edition penny commemorating Decatur’s Fan’s Field.
As with so many valuable and nostalgic landmarks in Decatur, Mr. Staley also gave his support to provide this home field for Decatur Baseball.
He provided financial help and even threw the first pitch at the first game. For his aid & support he was awarded a lifetime pass to the field. ♥️

Fond memories of Fan's Field and Crane Potato Chips

Staley Was Here!
The Staley Library
Today is commencement for the Millikin University Class of 2024!
Mr. Staley was surprised to see how much the campus had grown and changed since his lifetime… but even more surprising was seeing his name above the library entrance
The Staley Library was dedicated May 21, 1978, commencement day for that year’s graduating class
The Staley family and the Staley Mfg. donated 2.1 million dollars to help make this facility available to Millikin University students and the Decatur community.
Mr. Staley could not have been more proud to see how his descendants and his company made supporting education a priority.
While Staley’s formal education was limited, the school of life taught him plenty. In 1940 just months before he passed, he received an honorary Doctor of Science degree from Millikin University in recognition of his many achievements as an industrialist.

Please join Mr. Staley & The Staley Museum in congratulating this years graduates!
