Welcome to October in the Zenith City. This month, as Major League baseballs’s boys of summer prepare for the fall classic, we introduce readers to a new contributor, Anthony Bush. Anthony has penned this month’s cover story on the history of Wade Stadium (and professional baseball in Duluth) and in the future will be covering more of Duluth’s rich sports history, hopefully in a regular monthly column. Meanwhile, Heidi Bakk-Hansen will introduce us to the Dickerman family, whose members have several Zenith City streets named for them, and David Ouse reminds us of lyricist Sammy Gallop, a Duluth native who would go on to pen songs with Burt Bacharach and Doc Severinson of “Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.” Nancy Nelson explains the rich history of little-known Hilltop Park and, with the presidential election coming in early November, Jim Heffernan looks back on the times two presidents passed through his native West End while stumping for votes. Later in the month, Maryanne Norton answers a reader’s question about West Duluth’s Weber Hospital, and I’ll take a look at a lost landmark of West Duluth’s industrial past.
