History

Biography:

Dale Greve was born in Saginaw, Michigan, on June 3, 1947, the son of Lester and Ilda (Tausch) Greve. He grew up in Saint Charles, Michigan, along the banks of the Bad rivers, and graduated from Saint Charles High School in June 1965. Dale then joined the U.S. Navy, serving for four years and attending the Aviation Structural Mechanic School, among other service schools. While in the navy, Dale traveled the world and visited numerous historical sites. He advanced in rank from E-1 to E-5 in 27 months. After attending a class at Old Dominion College in 1968, Dale earned an Associate’s Degree in Mechanical Technology from Delta College in 1972.

In 1976, Dale returned to Saint Charles, Michigan. He worked in industry, in river restoration work in Saint Charles, and in marine repair of aluminum hulls.

Dale is a published author of several works. His copyrighted publications include: several color-coded area river navigation maps of Saginaw County, 1980; Greve’s Original Structural Aluminum Boat Repair Manual – Basic Fundamentals, 1992; Used Aluminum Boat/Hull Appraisal Guide, 1992; Saint Charles – Michigan – The Early Years -1848 thru 1870 – A Scrapbook History, 2007. He has also researched several articles for the MODOC Whistle, the newsletter of the Saginaw River Marine Historical Society.

For the last 30 years or so, Dale has researched local Saint Charles history. His historical interests began when he heard people mention how steamboats had once visited Saint Charles. This led to exploration of the relationship between local public waterways and the settlement and growth of Saint Charles. About 1980 he became involved with a river restoration project and this led to his exploring early river navigation between Saint Charles and Saginaw, Michigan. His family’s connection to local coal mines led to his research interests in Saint Charles coal mines history. His great-grandfather, Fritz Greve, came to Saint Charles in 1897 and sunk the shaft for Somers No. 1 coal mine. His grandfather and father both worked in the local coal mines.

In the early 1980s Dale helped found the Saint Charles Community Museum. He has served in many posts in the museum. He also helped construct the “historical center piece” of the Hartley Outdoor Education –Coal Mine Museums, in Saint Charles. In June of 1987, Dale worked with the Saint Charles Community Museum and the Michigan Sesquicentennial to bring the passenger riverboat, “Spirit of Lansing”, to the Bad rivers for a week.

For many years Dale cared for his elderly mother who died in 2006. Dale has a daughter, Wendy J. Greve. (This information is from biographical information provided by Mr. Greve, April 2011.)
