On September 7th, I was honored to be part of the Whaley Historic House's series of local history lectures known as History Happy Hour.
This is a great platform for historians to present little known local history in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. While the Whaley House has been under repairs the History Happy Hours have been hosted by Tenacity Brewing. Tenacity is a great place with a super-friendly staff that makes everyone feel like a VIP. They're very moderately priced and their menu has something for every taste.
For my presentation I choose the Lone Ranger's humble origins from right here in Michigan. The Lone Ranger has long been an icon of the American West. However, many do not realized that he was created for WXYZ radio by Michiganders and that the first person to voice this lawman was from Oxford, MI.
The Whaley Historic House in Flint is an amazing place. Please consider donating to them and attending their fundraisers.
