Former La Porte postmaster William Banks on WeRelate
William Allen Banks (1836-1904) was a progressive farmer and La Porte postmaster. A thorough biography page on him has been posted at the WeRelate wiki (which is affiliated with the Allen County Public Library and claims to be the world's largest genealogy wiki). Alan Zeller notes that it is the featured post on the site as of June 14. The full biographical site, with source citations, is here. It's a great sample of what people can do on this collaborative website.
