Pierz author is parade grand marshal


Leading the Pierz Oktoberfest Parade Sunday in Pierz was Maurice Faust, grand marshal. He is pictured with his wife Margaret on the parade route. The Pierz historian and author has written six books since retiring several years ago from Hartmann’s hardware store. His latest book published in 2002 chronicles towns from “Aitkinsville to Zerf” in Morrison County. Other books include “Rambling Through Agram,” “In the Glow Of Pierz,” “In Pierz We Serve,” “Remember–No Electricity” and “Pounded by Tramps.” A life-long resident of the area, the prolific writer’s books are factual and researched with a sprinkling of personal observations at times for added interest.
