Still Sits the Schoolhouse By the Road: Memories of “Good Old Golden Rule Days” in a Rural Two-room Elementary School in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan From 1935 to 1942


I thought some of you might have known our fellow author Frank Bartol, who passed away on November 21 and whose funeral was in Traunik, MI today. In the 1990s, he had a weekly column in the Mining Journal and later for the Escanaba Daily Press. He wrote the history of Traunik, “To This Place They Came: the Traunik Story in Pictures”, “Still Sits the Schoolhouse By the Road: Memories of Good Old Golden Rule Days From 1935 to 1942”, and “A Boy and His Chanticleer,” which Karin Neumann illustrated.
