dc.description.abstractThe author discusses how Kalamazoo memorialized four local heroes after World War I and how they represent similar efforts across the country after the war. Colonel Joseph Westnedge's death in 1918 sparked a lively debate in the Kalamazoo Gazette that led to renaming the main north-south street Westnedge Avenue. The author discusses both physical and literary memorials and discusses three other Kalamazoo heroes: Paul Butler, Stillman Jenks, and Howard Pyle.en_US
