Living History in the Ashland Cemetery

Do you wonder what your professors do in the Summer? On May 22, the Ashland County Historical Society hosted the first Ashland Living History Cemetery Walk, a.k.a. "Dead Men Talking." Thirteen people, among them our own Professor John Moser, portrayed men and women who were important to Ashland's past, and stood by those people's graves at the Ashland Cemetery to tell their stories to passersby.

Professor Moser portrayed local lawyer, politician, physician, newspaper publisher, historian and archaeologist George W. Hill.  He also helped to organize the event, which attracted some 400 people. Other Ashland University faculty involved include Deleasa Randall-Griffith (Communications Studies), David Kowalka (Education), and Howard Walters (Education).
