Letters To The Editor

Each month, The Kentucky Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from our faithful readers. Whenever possible, we try to publish as many of them as possible in the 12 pages we have set aside for "Letters to the Editor."


Here are actual letters from our September 2002 issue:

Thank you, Culvyhouses!

Dear Editor:


I have received many calls and letters from readers who saw the story on William Sears in the June 2002 issue. If it hadn't been for the Doris Culvyhouse family, this story would not have been possible. I had the photos and information for a minor part of the story, but it was the Culvyhouse family that furnished the largest portion of information. Doris' mother and mine were first cousins, both direct descendants of William Sears.


I should have done so, at the time I wrote the story, but failed to properly credit the Culvyhouse family for their important contributions. I'm very sorry that this happened and hope this letter will help clear up my forgetfulness.

"Protose" Defined

Dear Editor:

I read, with interest, the "Old-Time Recipes To Enjoy" section in the June 2002 issue. I have an answer to your question about "protose," which was used in one of the recipes.


Protose is a meat substitute made from grain and peanuts. It was invented by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, who also created Kellogg cereals. Dr. Kellogg practiced and preached vegetarianism.


Protose is still around today. I have never (that I know of) eaten it, but it reportedly tastes like prime beefsteak.


I very much enjoy your magazine. I may send another article on Woodford County history to you some time this summer, if you're interested.


Keep up the good work.

Another "Protose" Definition

Dear Editor:

My family and I really enjoy your magazine very much.
I recently read under the recipes page about "protose." This is a vegetarian meat substitute that was invented by John Kellogg.


I look forward to your future issues.
