Meet the Author

Kenosha Streetcar Society member Kenneth C. Springirth, author of four Arcadia books, was instrumental in initiating Kenosha on the Go. John F. Doyle, the primary author of this title, cofounded the Kenosha Streetcar Society with Louis Rugani of Kenosha in 2002. Doyle was raised in Chicago where streetcars, interurbans, "L" trains, subway trains, trackless trolleys, and buses were all part of the everyday scene. When his family got its first car in 1945, a favorite memory was driving down Sheridan Road from Chicago to Milwaukee. Passing through Kenosha and viewing those trackless trolleys amid the classic downtown buildings was always something special.
