Ed Lentz has been teaching, writing and exploring the history of central Ohio for more than 40 years.
When he isn’t doing that sort of thing, he teaches history in general and Ohio history in particular at various local colleges and universities.
He writes for local newspapers, consults in history and historic preservation and keeps company with his wife, three cats and occasionally resident two children.
Lentz holds degrees in history from Princeton University and Ohio State University. He is the author of several books, including Columbus – The Story of a City (2003), A Home of their Own (2010) and Historic Columbus (2012).
John Loriman Gill came into central Ohio after this area had been initially settled and the new capital city of Columbus had been established in 1812. So he was not part of that pioneering generation that blazed the trails, fought the early battles and eventually made this place their own.
