Joe Grimm of the Detroit Free Press has combined a fascinating collection of old family letters, diaries, journals, photos, and other memorabilia in this rare glimpse at Michigan's past. Based on a series of articles that appeared in the "Chronicles" column of the Detroit Free Press Sunday magazine from 1985 to 1987, Michigan Voices introduces the reader to a more personal side of the state's history.
Excerpts from historical documents include Cadillac's proposal of 1700 to establish Detroit and Roger Andrews' crusade for an independent Upper Peninsula in 1916. Among the chronicles Grimm has uncovered are humorous letters from a World War I recruit, an engaging series of correspondences between a Flint schoolgirl and Detroit Mayor Frank Murphy during the Great Depression, and an interview with Kenneth C. Welch, the revolutionary architect and planner who developed the mall/shopping center concept in 1946.

Book Description:

A fascinating assemblage of old family letters, diaries, journals, photos, and other memorabilia, Michigan Voices introduces the reader to a more personal side of the state's history.

From the Author:

I am so glad you're interested in "Michigan Voices." This book began as a series I proposed while working at the Detroit Free Press. I pitched it as a series of Sunday magazine features for the two years leading up to Michigan's 1987 sesquicentennial. 
You can bet I was pretty excited when, as a relatively new staff member, my idea was accepted. 
We used the series to invite readers to send in the small histories they had, unnoticed and unpublicized, in the attics and basements of their homes. Several came through. 
When the sesquicentennial came, Wayne State University Press asked whether we would like to preserve this magazine series as a history book. You bet!  
I thought that would be easy, but publishing projects never are. We re-edited the series, wrote new headlines and tracked down better art. 
This has not been a labor, but a celebration of Michigan. I hope you enjoy it.
