Inscribed and signed by the author: “To ‘Aunt Tillie’ – who knew ‘Charles W.’ / Mary Emily Schroeder / Sept. 11, 1977.” One of the early leaders of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the man who gifted the land that became Garfield Park, Charles W. Garfield was a “teacher, horticulturist, farm editor, conservationist, legislator, banker, philanthropist, and nature lover supreme, Garfield did more than any other to shape the course of the physical city over the 40-year span from 1894 to 1934. Garfield’s life was an answer to his father’s deathbed request to ‘remember always what the people have done for you and give yourself and your service to the people without thought of remuneration.’”
