Roseland-Pullman The Golden Years Vol. 1 and Vol. 2

In the early 1980s, a group of five area individuals decided to publish a book of images of Roseland and Pullman spanning from the late 19th to the mid-20th century. The members of this committee were Mario Avignone, Bette Kooistra, Ron Nietupski, Paul Petraitis and Bill Stachmus. More than 150 contributors provided photographs of family, neighbors, events, streetscapes, school photos, sports images, area businesses, etc. In addition to the hundreds of images in each book, Volume 1 contains a history of Roseland by Paul Petraitis and a history of Pullman by Mario Avignone. Volume 2 contains an essay "A View of Things Past: Community Life Along 115th Street" by Paul Petraitis. Each volume is soft cover and 100+ pages. Included in this record is some miscellaneous correspondence, newspaper clippings, and a 7-page list of many of the fraternal, church groups, clubs, etc. that existed in Roseland showing the year each was founded. Full record available for viewing at the Bertha Ludlum Reading Room in the Hotel Florence.
