Glimpses of Grand Traverse Past speaks to us of the founding of the Ladies Library; the influence of the Klan in Traverse City, the Oval Wood Dish Company strike, the presidential election of 1912, the recovery of the city from the environmental degradation of nineteenth century logging, the evolution of schools, the library, the fire department, Oakwood cemetery, and the local newspaper throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Illustrated with archived photographs and maps, it presents views of the Traverse area never before shown. Unlike many books of local history, the author explains history rather than simply describing it. Issues of gender, social discrimination, politics and the economy are discussed openly to help the reader understand the forces that shape this isolated and beautiful area of Michigan. This book is for all who love the Traverse area and wish to understand its past.
