He was a trailblazer for those of us who maintain a high level of interest in local history. He and his contemporary compatriots--including such luminaries as Alfred Heston, Charles Boyer, Nathaniel Ewan, Joseph Sickler, Harry Marvin, and Frank Andrews--identified and documented many of the sources we continue to use today, although we possess the ability to reinterpret those sources using additional source material that has since come to light.
