About this title
Originating with the first French settlers who landed on the banks of the Detroit River in 1701, the Catholic Church has evolved into one of Detroitís most influential institutions. In this new publication, the prodigious expansion of the Archdiocese of Detroit is brought to life in a fascinating retrospective featuring over 200 vintage images. ÝÝIn the 20th century, the rapid ascent of the automobile industry after World War One and the tremendous increase in Detroitís population triggered a parallel growth in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Witness the lean years of the 1930ís when the Depression gave rise to Detroitís most famous cleric, Father Charles Coughlin, the ìradio priestî of Royal Oak. March to the battlefront in the 1940s as Monsignor Joseph Ciarrocchi used the printed word as his weapon in Americaís fight against fascism. Relive the prosperous 1950s as the post-war baby boomers made their presence felt in every parish school. Finally, reflect on Catholic Detroiters during the turbulent 1960s. ÝÝAbout the Author:
The photographs used in this book, many never before published, come from the archival collections of the Archdiocese of Detroit, where author Roman Godzak has served as historian and archivist since 1987. Governor John Engler appointed Mr. Godzak, a Detroit area resident for more than 30 years, to a term on the Michigan Historical Records Advisory Board.
