About the Author

Paul Vachon is a freelance writer and an avid local historian. He has, at various times, worked, studied, and worshipped in Detroit and has an excellent sense of the pulse of urban life. A lifelong Detroit area resident, he currently lives in suburban Oakland County. In 1995, the Detroit News donated its photographic archive to the Walter P. Reuther Library at Wayne State University. This outstanding collection is the major source of this book’s images.
