We plan on this being an unusual journal in that we wish to encourage the partipation of all who share our passion for the history of this region - its people, its institutions, its values and its past. We do not intend to be a traditional scholarly journal. We will publish material which has broad appeal. Issues will appear as material is ready and each issue remains a work in progress with new material being added as appropriate.
We encourage our readers to submit contributions and comments on the work published. Our commitment to social history includes a commitment to encourage our fellow citizens to participate in writing their own history.
This journal is part of a much larger process. It is linked to an achive, the Ohio Local History Archive (OLHA), which is under construction -- a process which we see as neverending and to a Educator's Resource Library (ERL) which will contain material useful in the classroom. The three interconnected parts of this project include:
Complementing these three are special programs:
This site will also serve as a clearing house for other community historical groups.
This site is a part of the Social History and
the City Project of the Department of History, Cleveland State University ,

It was designed by Dr. Donald Ramos. Comments should be directed to site webmaster at email@example.com
