Books by Chase Osborn


"He wrote a number of books on a multiplicity of subjects, varying from a six-hundred page treatise on the legend of Hiawatha to a study dealing with errors in the official United States area figures pertaining to the boundaries of Michigan and the Great Lakes, a statistical compilation which caused a friend to exclaim: “Moses brought water from the rock. Joshua made the sun stand still. But it took Chase Osborn to double the area of Michigan.” In writing these works and in many of the activities of his later years, Osborn was aided by Stella Brunt, an honors graduate of The University of Michigan, who became his second wife. As Osborn advanced into his ninetieth year, increasingly troubled and incapacitated by illness and infirmities, she helped the aged governor continue his writing and aided his communication with the world.

Originally published in 1919, The Iron Hunter is the autobiography of one of Michigan's most influential and flamboyant historical figures: the reporter, publisher, explorer, politician, and twenty-seventh governor of Michigan, Chase Salmon Osborn (1860-1949). Making unprecedented use of the automobile in his 1910 campaign, Osborn ran a memorable campaign that was followed by an even more remarkable term as governor. In two years he eliminated Michigan's deficit, ended corruption, and produced the state's first workmen's compensation law and a reform of the electoral process. His autobiography reflects the energy and enthusiasm of a reformer inspired by the Progressive Movement, but it also reveals the poetic spirit of an adventurer who fell in love with Michigan's Upper Peninsula after traveling the world
