Ralph Hauenstein a Life of Leadership

During the summer of 2016, an extensive collection of archival materials belonging to Ralph W. Hauenstein were loaned to the Center by the Hauenstein family for digitization. These materials span Ralph’s incredible century of service on this earth: from his childhood, to his editorship of the Grand Rapids Herald, to his service in the Civilian Conservation Corps and in the U.S. Army, and so much more.

This page will include information and materials connected to this endeavor, now called the Ralph W. Hauenstein Legacy Project. Stay tuned!
