Arthur W. Stace was born at Marshall, Mich., on April 26, 1875, a son of Francis A. and Mary McMahon Stace. He received a bachelor's degree in literature from Notre Dame University at South Bend, Ind., in 1896, and took graduate work there the following year. He began his newspaper career in 1897 on the Grand Rapids Press and remained associated with that paper for 26 years. As a staff member of the Press, Stace served variously as telegraph editor, city editor, editorial writer, and special writer until 1913, when he became managing editor, a post he held for 10 years, until 1923. From 1923 until 1927, Stace was assigned as a special writer and researcher for the associated Booth Newspapers. In 1927, Stace left the newspaper field temporarily to take a position as director of the Michigan Utilities Information Bureau. At this time he also moved to Ann Arbor from Grand Rapids. In 1935 Stace returned to newspapers, this time as editor of the Ann Arbor News and director of the Ann Arbor Bureau of Booth Newspapers. He held those positions until his death January 10, 1950. Throughout his career, Stace wrote articles which were partially instrumental in the development of Michigan's tourist and outdoor recreation facilities, its tuberculosis and mental hospitals, rural electrification, the modern state highway system, and the development and conservation of Michigan's gas and other natural resources.
