We don’t always get to see our producer Laura Richter as she works so hard behind the scenes making every shoot run smoothly. Thanks to her and our cinematographers Jim Cloney and Tim Lynn for their excellent work this week as we interviewed Bill Deetz, great-grandson of G. E. Chamberlain, who was A. E. Staley’s “right-hand man” as company superintendent. ... See MoreSee Less

The story of A. E. Staley cannot be told without credit to his ultimate “right-hand man”, G. E. Chamberlain, the company superintendent. Tonight we documented a large part of this history when we talked with Bill Deetz, great-grandson of Mr. Chamberlain. Chamberlain is noted for developing the first soybean processor and grain dryer. He also was instrumental in negotiating the employment of George Halas, who went on to take the Decatur Staleys football team to Chicago, where they eventually became the Chicago Bears. Our film about the life of A. E. Staley, “Fields of Gold”, will be released in 2021. With film crew Jim Cloney, Tim Lynn, and Laura Richter. ... See MoreSee Less

Taking in some great local history tonight in Decatur as we film interviews with Rexlyn Nicole and Shelley Wooters. They shared stories handed down to them from family members about working with A. E. Staley. A fitting tribute today, A. E. Staley’s 153rd birthday. Our documentary about his life, titled “Fields of Gold”, is set to be released in 2021. ... See MoreSee Less
