Collection Description

The collection is a series of five scrapbooks compiled by Harvey Lemmen. The collection contains newspaper clippings and articles from local Grand Rapids, Michigan’s newspapers focusing on the history of the city, its people, places, and events. The collection includes clippings about the election of Grand Rapid’s first black mayor, the demolition of historic buildings, celebrations, and public transportation within the city. Scrapbooks also contain some printed photographs and brochures. Extensively included are historical columns from The Interpreter, a weekly Grand Rapids newspaper, called "Those Were the Days" by G. Harrington, and from the Grand Rapids Press, 1968-1975. One volume (#2) includes Grand Rapids Press columns of "The yesterdays of Grand Rapids" by Charles E. Belknap, his obituary in 1929, and a program from dedication of memorial statue on Dec. 26, 1931.
