The stories of more than two dozen ordinary people who led extraordinary lives are told here with honesty and wit by a historian who has been writing about northwest Ohio’s history for more than 60 years. Some of the people chronicled in the book were famous in their day, but are virtually forgotten today. Others gained a measure of renown for their unusual lifestyles only after their deaths. And still others are receiving well-deserved recognition for the first time in these pages. Among those featured in the book are nationally known figures, like Teresa Brewer, Art Tatum, Joe E. Brown, Millie Benson, Brand Whitlock, Peter Navarre, Rose La Rose, Ed Libbey, Mike Owens and Edmund Osthaus, as well as highly-accomplished, but lesser known folks, such as Richard and Anna Mott, Grant Johnson, Doc and Ella Stewart, Ed Russell, Clyde and Carrie Tingley, Dr. Ernst and Therese Gottschalk, Mother Adelaide Sandusky, Jibby Jibilian, Jorgen Faldt Larsen, Colonel Christopher McLean, C. J. Hurrle and Marjorie Whiteman.
