Item or Series Title Louise Goodell Scrapbooks
Catalog Number 2015-06-001
Description This collection contains a National Honor Society certificate for Louise Goodell (1939), a file of loose newspaper clippings about the Lansing Fire Department from the 1940s, and four scrapbooks.

The scrapbooks, which consist almost entirely of newspaper clippings, date from approximately 1913 to 1952, with the majority of the contents being from the 1940s. The theme of the clippings is primarily the Lansing Fire Department, fires in Lansing and the surrounding communities, and sometimes national or Michigan fire-related material.

Other themes and materials included are: the John Bean Company; the new Lansing central fire station at Shiawassee and Grand streets (Station No. 1) built in 1949; the 1951 state office building fire (the building later known as the Cass Building); a few souvenir fire department postcards, snapshots, and patches; and a few memorial programs from funerals for fire fighters and their spouses.
