John Harshaw is definitely the best historian of West End.
In addition to participating in various panel discussions about history of West End and presenting on this topic (you can see some of them in our Video History section), he also published several books, including the "Cincinnati's West End"
As he writes on his Website:
His latest book is "Jazz On A Broken Piano". It covers the Betty Butler murder case in the West End in 1952. She became the first African-American woman in Ohio to die in the electric chair and was quoted internationally in the Wanda Jean Allen murder case.
