"Paul de Kruif - Zeeland's Literary Pioneer" - September 13, 2019

On Friday, September 13, the Zeeland Historical Society hosted the monthly School Bell Series at the 1881 New Groningen Schoolhouse on Paw Paw Drive in Zeeland.


Linda Kolk presented a program exploring the life and thought of Paul de Kruif, a Zeeland native and the first to write about health and medicine for the general public. 


Check out his book, A Man Against Insanity (1957), to learn how one doctor at the Traverse City State Hospital changed the way people with mental illness are treated here and abroad.
