Report on Ypsilanti Historical Society Contest
"The old days in Ypsilanti" for those over sixty five years of age, had more promised stories than actual written ones. However, the Judges continuing to remain anonymous have selected My Life in Ypsilanti as winner of the $25.00 First Prize. This interesting and memorable paper was written and submitted by Genevieve Ward Williams. A remarkable performance with many forgotten names and places!
Martha Stadtmiller Walton was persuaded to submit one of her mother's poems of old times. It was awarded the $15.00 Second Prize. Mrs. Mabel I. Stadtmiller (1888-1973) was Treasurer of the City of Ypsilanti 1924-1957 and a Charter Member of the Ypsilanti Historical Society.
