PRLog - Dec. 19, 2011 - The second book in Arcadia Publishing’s new Legendary Locals imprint is Legendary Locals of Cincinnati, by Kevin Grace. Filled with an average of 180 images and a new design, this people-centric imprint focuses on newsworthy and noteworthy individuals and groups who have built and shaped their communities.

Founded in 1788 along the Ohio River, Cincinnati was the major city in the Northwest Territory for several decades. As it has developed into its third century, Cincinnati’s innovations, service, manufacturing, arts and athletics mark it as a place with a vibrant and varied heritage.

The contributions of interesting and unique personalities add to the city’s dynamism: William Holmes McGuffey and his creation of a nation’s textbooks; civil rights activists Ted Berry, Fred Shuttlesworth and Marian Berry; iconic personalities like baseball star Pete Rose and silent film actress Theda Bara; grocery entrepreneur Barney Kroger; cooperative education creator Herman Schneider; polio vaccine pioneer Albert Sabin; Joseph Strauss, the design engineer of the Golden Gate Bridge; Paul Brown, one of the NFL’s greatest coaches; Henry Heimlich, whose Heimlich maneuver has saved countless lives; and Benadryl inventor George Rieveschl.

Cincinnati has been shaped by its philanthropists and business leaders; the cultural and political figures; the teachers and community workers; and even the intriguing characters and everyday citizens who make Cincinnati an interesting place on the map. This book tells their stories.
