Arch Merrill '20

Newspaperman, author, and historian, Arch Merrill's lifelong love was the written word. He was a newspaperman for 50 years, most of which was spent at the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle as a night editor and weekly columnist. His Sunday columns appeared for 33 years, and many were collected in book form. Merrill authored 23 books, including Pioneer Profiles, Fame in Our Time, and the Towpath. His last book, From Pumpkin Hook to Dumpling Hill, was published in 1969. Merrill once wrote: “Perhaps no inheritance is richer than our memories, memories of a less troubled, simpler time.” He died on July 15, 1974.
