Ridgewood in the Country Club District gives a rare, detailed look at life in this early suburb of Springfield, Ohio. It follows the meteoric rise of Harry Kissell from a go-getting local real estate agent and developer to one of the architects of the Federal Home Loan Banking System, which, in the midst of the Great Depression, saved millions of Americans from foreclosure and permanently opened up the possibility of home ownership to the middle class.
