Description: The Summer 2019 GOLDENSEAL focuses on the 100th anniversary of the West Virginia State Police. Articles by Merle T. Cole trace the early history of the department, which was established in the midst of the southern West Virginia Mine Wars. He also writes about the challenges of patrolling the state’s highways—on horseback and motorcycle, and finally with cruisers. Cole studies how the highway patrol was really put to the test when the West Virginia Turnpike opened in 1954. Aaron Parsons looks at lesser-known aspects about the State Police and profiles Braxton County native Sharen Sumpter Deitz, who, in 1977, became the first female state trooper in West Virginia history. Larry Shockley brings to light some stunning photos taken in the Kanawha Valley during the summer of 1973 as part of the national DOCUMERICA project; Kenny Kemp, a longtime photographer for the Charleston Gazette-Mail, comments on the images from Charleston, South Charleston and Glasgow in Kanawha County and from Putnam County. In addition, the issue looks at Civil War battlefield preservation in West Virginia, Jim’s Steak & Spaghetti House in Huntington, a visit with Sistersville (Tyler County) woodcrafter Eddy Cathers, and a tribute to the late George Daugherty—“the Earl of Elkview”—by Mack Samples.
