Baxter Family


Four generations of the family of Arthur R. Baxter have enjoyed the east shore region of Lake Maxinkuckee since the year 1915. It was in that year that Arthur R. Baxter and his wife Frances Doyle Baxter brought their son Emory to enter Culver Military Academy and discovered the beauties and recreational advantages of the area.



In 1917 Arthur Baxter purchased the Hazeldine cottage, 1470 East Shore Road, and soon also acquired the M. E. Clark cottage next door, 1460 East Shore Road , Eventually the property owned by Mr. Degendorf, 1450 East Shore Road, was secured to house the growing family.

Emory Baxter married Ruth Fromm, having two children: Robert Russell Baxter and Marjorie R. Baxter. Emory and Ruth now live in Indianapolis and have five grandchildren.

R. Norman Baxter married Jane Fargo; having four children: Arthur R. Baxter, Mary Baxter Lysell; Elsie Baxter Heckel and R. Norman Jr. "Rick". As family growth continued. Mr. and Mrs. R. Norman Baxter moved to Dayspring Farm on Maxinkuckee Road and their daughter Elsie Heckel and her husband Tom of St. Louis, now own and occupy the original cottage at 1470 East Shore Drive, with four children: David, Mary, Debbie and Marjorie.

Delight Baxter married Wayne Bailey and now reside in California. The have two daughters Sally Fifer Bernstein and Nancy Black and five grandchildren.

Fredrick L. Baxter married Virginia Wagoner, now of Florida, and has one daughter Sue.

R. Norman Baxter's daughter Mary Baxter married Harry Lysell, brother and brother-in-law of Betty and Charlie Maull who lived next door to the old Winslow cottage just opposite of the club house on the Maxinkuckee County Club. They now live in California and are the parents of Betty Jane Hudson of Indianapolis and Michael, Bill, and Katherine all of California.

R. Norman Baxter's son, Arthur R. Baxter married Nancy Niblack and they own a farm on Queen Road. Their six children are: John Baxter, Boston, Massachusetts; Marybeth Baxter Burke, Columbus, Ohio; Janet Baxter Hale, Christina Village, Delaware; James and Arthur Jr., Indianapolis; and Daniel Niblack Baxter, Springfield, Arizona. There are six grandchildren.


Richard Norman Baxter Jr. married Julia Clift. They now own the cottage at 1460 East Shore Drive and have two children: Ben and Sam, three and four years old.

Lake Maxinkuckee has been the summer resort for the Baxter family for over 65 years. Today the golf course is becoming a rallying point again, with the fourth generation taking over. An interesting side-light concerns a friendship which developed at Lake Maxinkuckee between Arthur Raymond Baxter and Dr. Frank Hugh Sparks, co-founder and President of Arvin Industries and an outstanding President of Wabash College in Crawfordsville.

Dr. Sparks, as a young man living in Culver, would visit the lake area and walk along the east shore's then well worn path that extended from the old Bigley store access road south along the lake. Dr. Sparks remembers saying to himself as he talked with the people living in those "wonderful houses", including Mr. Arthur Raymond Baxter [sic as written], that some day he too would have a house along those lovely shores and would strive for a good education and success in business to achieve his dream.

Many years later in the 1950's, the Baxter and Spark [Sparks] name became intwinded [entwined] at Wabash College. Dr. Sparks provided the impetus for interesting Arthur Raymond Baxter [sic as written], who had quit school at 16 to support his family, but went on to be a very successful industrialist in Indianapolis and admirer of young Frank Hugh Sparks' work at Arvin, to provide scholarship help to worthy students at Wabash. Mr. Baxter's great love of education and admiration for the "eager young man on the walk" found expression in building the Arthur R. Baxter Hall at Wabash College. Thus Lake Maxinkuckee had a significant impact on not only the lives of many families, but also on the educational opportunity in Indiana. For it was through the work of Dr. Sparks and Mr. Baxter that the Associated Colleges of Indiana got started which provided a means for immense corporate support of independent colleges around the state. Eventually, Dr. Sparks took this concept to the national level where today the Council for Independent Colleges serves schools all over the country.

Indeed, Lake Maxinkuckee has seen some very interesting historical events and meetings, and such events will surely continue on into the future. - Arthur R. and Nancy Niblack Baxter.

Nancy and her husband began Guild Press in 1987

    Guild Press of Indiana Sold to Larger Media Company

    Oct. 17, 2001--Guild Press of Indiana, best known to Civil War fans as the company that brought the Official Records of the War of the Rebellion to CD-Rom format at an affordable price, has been sold to Emmis Communications Corp. of Indianapolis.

    Emmis Communications Corp. owns radio, television and magazine holdings. This is its first venture into book publishing. Terms of the deal were not announced according to reports in the Indianapolis Star.

    Besides the OR, Guild Press has published books and CDs on the Civil War, American frontier history and Indiana history. The company has published more than 200 titles since it was founded in 1987. Emmis officials said they will will work on expanding Guild's line.

    Before the advent of CD-Rom formatting, researchers who wanted to cons ult the Official Records had to either cons ult often crumbling library editions or purchase the set in bound form at a cost of thousands of dollars. Initial CD based editions cost several hundred dollars.

    Guild Press was the first company to price the disk at under $100, making it affordable to individuals, small libraries and even schools. In addition to the price advantage, Guild's search capabilities were hailed by most reviewers and users as superior to alternative versions. They also produced another disk holding the official record of Naval operations.

    Guild Press is currently in the process of producing a DVD format disk that will include the Civil War CD-ROMs (Official Records of the Army and Navy), Southern Historical Society Papers, Confederate Military History, Campaigns of the Civil War, The Confederate Generals Speak, the Atlas of the Official Records and the Medical and Surgical Records of the Union and Confederate Armies. Their website currently offersed this at a pre-production price of $200.

    No details were announced as to whether Emmis wo uld continue producing the Civil War CDs or what the pricing structure wo uld be if they did.

    Emmis Communications operates Indianapolis Monthly, as well as city and regional magazines in Los Angeles, Texas and Cincinnati. It also publishes Country Sampler, a national crafts magazine. Guild Press, based in Carmel, Indiana, employs three staffers, who work with authors and book designers mostly on a freelance basis, said Nancy Niblack Baxter, founder and former owner of Guild.

    All three employees will remain with the company. Baxter will serve as president, and longtime literary agent Andy Murphy will work as marketing director.

    The backing of a large corporation such as Emmis, however, with its increased capital and advertising resources, will allow Guild to be the kind of company of which Baxter could only dream before, she said.

    "We weren't on the market. They just wanted to buy us, and they liked us," she said. "We thought, 'Why not?' They will help us realize our potential."

    Emmis owns 15 television stations, plus 20 FM and three AM domestic radio stations, including Indianapolis holdings WIBC-AM (1070), WNOU-FM (93.1) and WENS-FM (97.1). It also owns stations serving the nation's largest markets of New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
