About Business

The Grand Rapids Historical Commission was established because one person, retired newspaper reporter Z.Z. Lydens, dedicated himself to the idea that the city needed to bring its published history up to date. On September 11, 1962 Davis appointed Lydens to a newly created Historical Commission, along with Aquinas College professor Lewis Clingman, Gerald Elliott of the Grand Rapids Press, and seven others. Their charge was to research, write and publish a history of the city, and 'establish a reference library and collection of source material. In 1966 the first copies of The Story of Grand Rapids rolled off the presses. Since then the Historical Commission has published many books and videos about Grand Rapids, its history and its people.
