Frederick H. Graham and Dawn Lee Patrick, authors of Westwood: A 75 Year History, collected a great deal of research for the publication of their book. The Westwood neighborhood in Muncie, Indiana was developed in the 1920s during the “building boom” that occurred after World War I. Over the years, Westwood has been home to a number of affluent and well-known Muncie citizens. The research spans 75 years of Westwood’s history, including businesses and industries, personalities, and the promotion of the community in newspaper.
