All Over the Map has text explaining the origins of many of the interesting place-names featured on the maps.
"Col. August Hazard gave his name to the community of Hazardville, CT. He was also the founder of the Hazard Powder Company that began there in 1835. This company proved to be aptly named when, after a few smaller explosions, it finally went out of business with a big bang in the early 1900s -- taking several employees with it."

"Bountiful, UT, was one of the first out-settlements of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, taking its name from the harvest hoped for by the Mormon settlers. Charles Mabey, a native of this town, served as Governor of Utah from 1921-25. He ran unsuccessfully for a second term against George Henry Dern, who used the slogan 'We need a Dern good governor and we don't mean Mabey.' If the good people of Utah recognized genius when they saw it, then Dern was elected governor on the strength of that slogan alone."

All Over the Map Again also has text that explains the origins of many of the interesting place-names on the maps.
"Formerly Derry Church, Hershey, PA, was renamed for native-son Milton Hershey in 1906 when he located his new chocolate factory there. Appropriately, the town's main thoroughfare is named Chocolate Avenue; some other streets in town are named for places where the cocoa bean comes from--Bahia, Caracas, and Granada."

"Now here's an amazing story: during World War II, gas was rationed and the ensuing difficulty in getting from one place to another made hitchhiking an acceptable--even patriotic-- form of transportation. In September of 1943 an escaped convict from Ohio State Penitentiary named Ralph Schimpf was apprehended in Omaha, NE. Unfortunately, 'due to transportation conditions,' Ohio prison officials weren't able to retrieve their convict. A patriotic Schimpf volunteered to solve the problem by hitching back to Ohio. 'We all got to do our bit at a time like this,' he said. Amazingly, the police actually agreed to this idea; the escapee, true to his word, thumbed his way back to Columbus-- and prison."
