AKRON, Ohio - One hundred years ago, word spread far and wide that Akron Mayor Frank Rockwell , who died in 1917, had penned a letter to the city's future mayor.
In the time since those first reports, the letter was forgotten and remained that way until an LA-based blogger dug up an article about it for Gizmodo series called "The Most Exciting Time Capsules Being Opened This Year ."
But he soon discovered a big problem: Was the letter ever written?
He contacted current Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic and, as the Akron Beacon Journal reported, a crack team of area historians jumped on the mystery.
Their conclusion? You'll have to read Mark Price's column about it .
