Researcher digs deeper into women's impact on the lakeshore

COOPERSVILLE, Mich. (Coopersville Area Historical Society Museum)-- At the 7 p.m., April 7, 2011 meeting, Wally Ewing, a well-known history researcher and author from Grand Haven, will give a presentation on some of the women who were prominent in the area's development.

He begins with Lasette Constant who lived from 1812-1907. Her father, Pierre Constant was a fur trader. Lasette then was also involved in the fur business.

The presentation highlights other eras and ends with the contributions of Marjorie Boon, a recent mayor of Grand Haven. Marjorie served during a very pivotal time of new development.

Wally's program deals with women's history but the lives of his interesting subjects had impact upon the course of area history as a whole.
