why's that

Brady-Handy Collection / Library of Congress

Each month, WMUK’s “Why’s That?” delves into a question you send us and tries to find an answer. You can submit your idea here. September’s story is about names – two of them, well-known in Kalamazoo and nationally, and how they might be connected.

If you’ve ever wondered how a street got its name or the history of some older building in Southwest Michigan, WMUK might be able to help.
