Michigan Historical Review, Spring 2010 | Go to article overview

Editor's Page


First an announcement: Starting with 2011, electronic access to the Michigan Historical Review will come through a new Current Scholarship Program (CSP) being launched by JSTOR. Print publication will go on as always, and readers of paper copies will see no change of any sort. At present, electronic access to current issues is provided by the History Cooperative. While the History Cooperative has done its member journals a great service in providing current issues online to institutional subscribers, the Review has had to absorb some moderately significant costs. Even so, the University of Illinois Press, which provided all the technical service and expertise, found it could no longer cover costs that exceeded the fees being paid by member journals. The new CSP will cover costs through a commission on electronic subscriptions but will furnish some major advantages for online users. Back issues of the MHR are already available through 2004 in JSTOR; electronic subscribers through the CSP will receive, as a bonus, the remaining back issues up through 2010. Thus readers online using CSP from 2011 onward will have access to all back and current files of the Michigan Historical Review.

Jake Hall's prize-winning essay seeks, as histories of labor often do, a story of organized labor's success amid adversity and finds at least a modest triumph at an unlikely time and place--Detroit around 1920. We are, incidentally, seeking entries for the 2010 competition, which closes July 1, and hope to find as good a winning essay this year. In his survey of Michigan's newspaper history, Frank Boles outlines a subject that deserves more research. In tracing the career of Rebecca Shelley, whose portrait is on the cover of this issue, Susan Goodier introduces us to a Michigan advocate for pacifism and women's rights whose career was significant but just below the level of visibility in textbooks. Shelley's fight to regain her American citizenship, which she lost by marriage to a foreign national, sheds light on the convoluted legal technicalities that have compromised American women's rights as citizens. Urban planning can be quite convoluted too, but simple ideas often have the most popular appeal. Kalamazoo won national acclaim in 1959 and became a model for downtown renewal across the country by closing two downtown blocks to cars and turning the street into a pedestrian mall--only to reverse direction and reopen to automobiles in 1998. As Michael Cheyne's account shows, cosmetic solutions to urban problems may inspire great enthusiasm but bring limited results. …
