Throughout its existence, Dearborn has been a pioneer settlement, a multicultural hub, a college town, a major tourism center and a world-renowned industrial city. Unfortunately, due to a variety of factors, significant structures have been lost to time. Almost all of the eleven U.S. Arsenal complex buildings have disappeared since the arsenal was closed in 1875. The hallways of the Edison School and Oxford School still live on in the hearts of their students but were razed long ago. Even beloved edifices such as the Ford Rotunda and the Ford Motor Company Administration building are now only a memory. Author Craig E. Hutchison endeavors to immortalize the important foundational building blocks of an evolving city.

Craig Hutchison is a historian, researcher and author. He has worked in history-related positions for such institutions as the Henry Ford Estate, the Henry Ford Museum, Wayne County Parks and the Dearborn Historical Museum. A lifelong resident of the hometown of Henry Ford, Dearborn, Michigan, Craig earned a BA in history at the University of Michigan. The study of history has always been his major passion, as has the opportunity to write and be published. While at the Wayne County Parks, he served on the National Heritage Area project, which resulted in the Detroit Metropolitan area being named the MotorCities National Heritage Area. Craig has never been far away from the history of Henry Ford and while at the Henry Ford Estate, he worked on projects related to the interpretation of history, including the improvement of tours and reenactment activities. Working as a historical interpreter at Greenfield Village, guiding the public as to what life was really like in the past provided an interesting perspective compared to writing about historical topics. The Dearborn Historical Museum opened up a whole new world to Craig as he served as communications specialist. Having a great desire to continue training in this amazing field, Craig is presently pursuing an MA in public history from Arizona State University. But truly, there is no greater thrill for Craig than to be able to share fascinating history with the public via the publishing of the written word and his hope is that his fourth book opens eyes and provides some thrilling moments for readers.
