Four Wheels and a Vision: Butler’s Automotive Inventions, 1905-1941
Four Wheels and a Vision: Butler’s Automotive Inventions, 1905-1941
Our Price: $4.00

Compiled and written by Carlene Bouwman, Pat Collins, and Patti Jo Lambert, 2011.
"As early as 1905, entrepreneurs in the City of Butler [Pennsylvania] were looking to the future. Long before it became fashionable to breeze around town in a new Chevrolet, these citizens took a chance and invested in a new industry--the manufacturing of automobiles.
This book covers 36 years of Butler's automotive golden age. During this time, Butler entrepreneurs manufactured six unique vehicles. They faced many challenges--including the Great Depression. One of the Butler-made vehicles--the Bantam Reconnaissance Car--became the most important American vehicle ever built"--the Jeep. (From Introduction.)
There is much more that could be written about this fascinating part of Butler's history. But this abbreviated compilation of facts and photos is an excellent introduction to the 70th anniversary of the Jeep.

2011 by Robert J. Watson, PhD
Slippery Rock University opened its doors on March 26, 1889, as Slippery Rock State Normal School. Nearly 125 years later, SRU is known around the US and in many foreign countries for many reasons.
Slippery Rock University: the Legend behind the Name—the culmination of 40 years of research—is the fascinating story of the evolution of this popular western Pennsylvania college. Robert Watson’s work began in a doctoral research class he was taking at Pitt University in 1972. When he realized his great-grandfather was one of the founders of the Slippery Rock school, his research took on a new dimension. The result is 460 pages of history packed with 813 photographs and pieces of documentation.
