The presentation's title "Arthur St. Clair, The Invisible Patriot," is also the title of his new book. It is an historical commentary about the mostly unreported life of one of our greatest patriots and founding fathers.
"Few know about St. Clair's major efforts in Pennsylvania, Ohio and the Revolutionary War, or that he was one of Washington's most trusted major generals and political allies as congressman, president and territorial governor of the great northwest,", states Phillips. He also points out that St. Clair's role in the Pultney-St. Clairsville county seat story is always a perenial interest in Bellaire.
Phillips is a "Clevelander" who first learned his trade as corporate communications manager and magazine editor for a Fortune 500 and then headed the PR Dept. for a Cleveland ad agency. He was recruited to build a PR Division for a Phoenix ad firm and during the next 25 years eventually opened his own PR-Media Advocacy firm. He and his wife moved to the Ohio Valley six years ago to be nearer to family and to begin researching and writing for newspapers and magazines about pioneers and patriots who influenced the area.
