12/27/13 467 W, 13 I - + 11 - 7 History of the History Books

Notes on the histories of the Raleigh Fire Department's four commemorative history books, which were published in 1984, 2002, 2007, and 2012. See this web page for more extensive details, including history text (1984) and page samples and production notes (2007, 2012). Organizing some piles in the man cave this morning. Note that two of these projects either stalled or were postponed. Glorious results resulted, however. 

First Book

Second Book

Third Book

Fourth Book

Here are some related images, including a montage of book covers, the acknowledgement pages for each book, a pair of 1984 cover designs credited to Firefighter Donald C. Heath, and flyers from three of the four books. Maybe we'll uncover an order form from 2002 some time. Click to enlarge:
