History Matters: Walter Ansel Strong
Walter Ansel Strong (1883-1931), grandson of Libertyville's Ansel B. Cook, rose from a tragic Chicago childhood to become a leading newspaper publisher in Chicago, a position he used to defend democratic institutions and promote honest journalism. David Strong will share the results of his research into his grandfather's life, with particular attention to his upbringing and his accomplishments, including the unheralded role he played in putting Al Capone behind bars.
