A Standard History of Allen County, Ohio, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from A Standard History of Allen County, Ohio, Vol. 1: An Authentic Narrative of the Past, With Particular Attention to the Modern Era in the Commercial, Industrial, Educational, Civic and Social Development When in the course of human events it becomes the privilege and duty of a community to tabulate its centennial record, the matter of co-operation is a prime necessity. Just as Allen County is passing its first centenary the spirit of co-operation and reconstruction is claiming the attention of the whole word. Never before in the history of the world has it been in such unsettled, chaotic condition. While the Ft. Amanda episode connected with the War of 1812 was in advance of the organization of Allen County, and while some would say there is no local history aside from the traditions clustering about it, their attention is hereby called to some of the phenomenal advances in local civilization. There have been rapid strides in agriculture, manufacturing and commercial developments within the 100 years since Allen County has had its name and outline- it passed its centenary February 12, 1920, and the record of the last fifty years is an easier matter than tabulating the events of the first half century. The pioneers were not addicted to the habit of writing down the news of the community. In his editorial announcement concerning "A Standard History of Allen County, the Hon. William Rusler as supervising editor, says: "As editor, my task will be to direct the collection of all historical material that should find a permanent place in the records of Allen County and to insure as far as possible an impartial and accurate treatment of this material, according to the outline herein proposed," the foregoing statement appearing in the prospectus shown subscribers to the Allen County History. In order that the local editorship might be of the most representative character, the following named persons were invited to act in the capacity of advisory editors: Senator Stephen D. Crites, Elida- Mayor Frank A. Burkhardt, Harold Cunningham and Mrs. James Pillars, Lima- N. W. Cunningham, Bluffton- Judge John F. Lindemann, Delphos- Paul W. Cochrun, Spencerville, and B. F. Cotner, Lafayette. The introductory chapters dealing with general conditions in the early history of Northwestern Ohio are written by Nevin O. Winter, Allen County proper beginning with the chapter: In the Lap of a Century. The preliminary chapters are the foundation for it. Mr. Rusler is frequently designated as "The Sage of Shawnee" because of his familiarity with Allen County development- the board of advisory editors have all responded with information relative to inquiries and the publisher's representative, in assembling historical data, also begs to acknowledge unfailing courtesies shown him by Lehr E. Miller, E. C. Ackerman, D. H. Tolan, Elmer McClain, Ezekiel Owen, H. E. Simonton, John C. Mack, F. E. Harmon and Dr. George Hall. When they have not had definite knowledge about a matter they have all put into operation processes that speedily developed the desired information. Mr. Rusler has been "instant in season and out of season" in his response to telephone inquiry and, since Suburban 3213 is a party line, other patrons sometimes demanded the wire in the midst of an interview- when some new question presented itself, Mr. Rusler was always asked for his version and usually he knew the whole story.
