Congratulations to Doug Tracy of New Albany, Ohio, who won the popular vote for his essay about the real Detective Tracy of the Toledo Police Department and Captain James Fraser of the Toledo Fire Department.   His essay will be submitted to the national contest sponsored by the Society of American Archivists.  If you are interested, here is the link to a longer article that Doug wrote for The Toledo Gazette about Captain Fraser, The Story Beneath Promenade Park. We wish Doug the best of luck!

Thank you to our two finalists, Sharen Bowers and George E. Biggs, and all our participants for sharing their inspiring stories about the treasures to be found in the Ohio Historical Society’s archival collections. Over the course of March and April we will post all of the 2013 submissions.
