Grant Merritt is the Grandson of Alfred Merritt, who along with his brothers Leonidas and Cassius discovered the Mesabi Iron Range in Mt. Iron, Minnesota on Nov. 16, 1890. 
For the past nine years he has been researching and writing about the Merritt years in their Mesabi Iron venture and preparing a book on that history as well as his environmental work. The book “Iron and Water” is scheduled to be published next March by the University of Minnesota Press.
