Meyers publish new book
Columbus State Community College:
An Informal History, David
Meyers and Elise Meyers
Walker have written yet another book of local history,
Inside the Ohio Penitentiary
(The History Press, 2013).
As animal factories go, the Ohio Penitentiary was one of the worst. For 150 years, it housed some of the most dangerous criminals in the United States, including murderers, madmen and mobsters.
Peer in on Americas first vampire, accused of sucking his victims’ blood five years before Bram Stokers fictional villain was even born; peek into the cage of the original Prison Demon; and witness the daring escape of John Hunt Morgan’s band of Confederate prisoners. Uncover the full extent of mayhem and madness locked away in one of history’s most notorious maximum-security prisons in this profusely illustrated volume.
David is a data analyst and Elise a program coordinator in the Center for Workforce Development. Their books are available online and from many local book stores.
