Meet the Author: David Kiehn

Author of Broncho Billy and the Essanay Film Company

by Patricia M. Short-Freeney

Local history comes alive as David Kiehn chronicles the film industry in Niles during the early 1900s. "It was a Monday, April 1, 1912, when the town of Niles, population 1400, was invaded by a small army, the fifty-two members of the Essanay Film Manufacturing Company had arrived by train." Here is a behind-the-scenes look at the Essanay Company at work and play.
