A book for anyone interested in the history of Mansfield, Ohio or nostalgic baby boomers looking for a reminder of what it was like growing up in postwar America, Memories Of A Baby Boomer From Mansfield is both an autobiographical view at life in the American Midwest after World War II and a personal journey into the author’s discovery of his family history. Beginning with his family’s immigration to America from Romania in 1912 and establishment of a farm in Mansfield up through the author’s experiences throughout childhood, Memories intertwines historical record with nostalgic anecdotes about the author’s friends, family, and city to give life to a significant chapter in the story of both his and America’s life.
