The shooting of a top radio personality, the murder of a child in Williams County, a man targeted by a notorious gang and the worst tragedy at a school in America…all stories that were covered by a reporter from the area and all will be featured in a program this Saturday morning, April 20.
The Stryker Area Heritage Council is inviting people to the Saturday morning presentation to hear all about the major crime stories written by Stryker native Ralph Goll.
Stryker Area Heritage Council Trustee Bill Priest will lead those in attendance back through some of the top stories of the murder and crime covered by Mr. Goll that occurred largely in the 1930’s and 40’s.
Ralph Goll was born in Stryker. He later lived in the Montpelier and Nettle Lake areas of Williams County. He died in New York City in 1957.
The program is free and open to the public and will be held at the Stryker American Legion on Saturday, April 20, beginning at 10 a.m.
The Stryker American Legion will be holding a breakfast that morning from 7 to 10 a.m. that is open to the public, and the Stryker Area Heritage Council will open the depot to people who would like to look over the historical items on display there. The depot will be open after the Goll presentation until 1 p.m.
