Porter's Watch: The View from the FirehouseLandmark Report (2010)
Bowling Green, Kentucky fireman Euclid Porter Dodd (1870-1958) witnessed many changes in the department and the city during his long career. In two record books that are now held in WKU's Special Collections Library, Dodd noted such events as the loss of a beloved fire wagon horse, his own dismissal and rehiring, local and national news, and the death of a young man that just might be the source of a popular Western Kentucky University ghost story.
