Cleveland A to Z w/ John Grabowski

February 13, 2018 19:30 to 21:00


Did you know that Anna Perkins once shocked Cleveland citizens by selling newspapers while dressed in male clothing on Public Square or that Moses Cleaveland was as much an investor and speculator as a “leader of men?” These and other interesting and essential facts about the city’s history are part of a new book published by the Western Reserve Historical Society as part of its 150th Anniversary. Authored by Dr. John Grabowski, the Society’s Chief Historian and editor of the Encyclopedia of Cleveland History, Cleveland A to Z: Historical Essentials for Newcomers and Residents in Northeastern Ohio consists of 72 short lively essays covering topics as diverse as mustard and the Yellow Cab Company. Each essay touches on issues that have helped define the community and is accompanied by an historical image and a contemporary color photo. Importantly, A to Z, is much more than a book. It is a bridge to the “on line” history of our community. Dozens of QR codes accompanying the articles allow readers to access the ever growing body of local history available on historically vetted websites. Whether it’s the odor of “Vinegar Hill” or the emerald necklace that comes with residence in our community, this new work will help build an understanding of why our city is what it is.

Join Professor John J. Grabowski for this talk about his new book, Cleveland A to Z. John’s interests and research span the fields of public and academic history. He specializes in the areas of immigration and ethnicity; local (Cleveland) urban history;and public history, particularly the fields of archives and museums. He holds a joint appointment with the Department of History at CWRU and the Western Reserve Historical Society, where he serves as Historian and Senior Vice President for Research and Publications. In addition to teaching at the department he also oversees the World Wide Web edition of The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History/Dictionary of Cleveland Biography, a joint project of Case Western Reserve University and the Western Reserve Historical Society.
