Unique Street Names: The Man on the Street (and Women too!), with Bob Sadler
The first Friends of the Plymouth Historical Museum monthly meeting for 2014-15 presents Bob Sadler from the Detroit Historical Society speaking about "Unique Street Names."
Many towns have an Elm Street, Washington Boulevard, or Second Avenue. Setting Detroit apart are the recognizable names of streets like Woodward, Beaubien, Mount Elliot and Selden. Behind each of these monikers is a man or woman who played a part in Detroit’s past. This unique presentation uses everyday street signs to explore the 300 years of Detroit’s history, and the story of the people whose legacy is traversed by citizens every day.
Bob Sadler is Director of Marketing & Sales for the Detroit Historical Society, which operates the Detroit Historical Museum. Prior to coming to the Society in 1997, Sadler spent more than six years in a variety of positions – the final three as director of marketing & education -- for the Epilepsy Center (now Epilepsy Foundation) of Michigan in Southfield. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Sadler holds a bachelor of arts degree in communication studies from the University of Detroit and a masters in business administration with a concentration in marketing from Wayne State University. Sadler resides in Dearborn with his wife and son.
This event is free and open to the public.
