Bigolin has been studying the history of DeKalb County, especially its architecture, for more than 30 years.
"It's always been a love of mine, and I've tried to share that with other people," he said.
Bigolin's studying began after he visited the Ellwood House Museum when he was a graduate student at Northern Illinois University.
"That really hooked me on local history," he said.
Bigolin continues to write a weekly history column for the Daily Chronicle.He currently is writing columns that will be in his next series of books, "Landmarks of the Barb City."
After he finishes his collection of columns on DeKalb landmarks, Bigolin plans on doing a similar series concentrated in Sycamore.
If everything goes well and the Daily Chronicle continues to publish a book every year, Bigolin hopes to have all of his books out by 2010.
"I like to say my life revolves around things that are historical," he said.
