Inside Ohio magazine was in its second year of publication when this issue was produced. It's not seen too much which is too bad because it has a lot to offer.

Here, for example, the topcs include the iron men, tool builders, a history in old newspapers starting in the late 1700's, the Ohio auto industry sub-assembly line, Ohio's advanced electric power production, education, science, transportation, communication, and the beloved Wright Brothers and aviation.

The College of Wooster publishd a pretty snappy alumni magazine back in the 1950's. This one shows on the cover a picture from the story inside remembering the historic fire of 1901. The other interesting thing is a short article about Cornelia Otis Skinner having performed at the college with a program from a skinner performance in the Wives of Henry VIII at Sevrance Hall in Cleveland laid-n. The program has no date, but it appears to be from the 1930's. How and why it's hidden in this 1951 magazine I don't t know, but it's a nice find. Another interesting story is about the Wooster Love So... View more info

Very clean and handsome yearbook for the Class of 1916 at Medina High School, Medina, Ohio. The previous owner kept track of name changes for the girls as they married, so this is especially helpful for anyone working on Medina genealogy. of course the lower classes are given a nod too, but most of the focus is on the seniors as expected. There are club and sport pictures and info, plus alumni lists (going back to 1876) and great local ads. Really nice graphics and a sense of humor also makes it a fun keepsake.

I've lived in Medina for a lot of years, but never have I seen an older Medina High School yearbook, but now I have one from 1916, this one, and a short stack of others -- all older. So if you're looking for a speicific year let me know and I'll see if I have it. Interestingly, the school colors were gray and red then instead of today's green and white. The yearbook measures 8" x 10-1/2" and has 80 pages. Very tightly bound and nicely kept. Long-time Medinians will recognize MANY old family names, including: Ziegler, Fenn, Kellogg, Claggett, Gerspacher, Oberholtzer, Navatril, and Batchhelder -... View more info

This is the third one of these school catalogues I've had -- the 17th, the 13th, and now the THIRD. This one is bit slimmer than the later ones, but it's especially interesting to see the Female Seminary in its early days. The number of students are impressive -- five pages of girls' names. Most were Ohioans, but other places are recorded too -- Indianapolis; Erie PA; Davenport, Iowa; Springfield, Mass.; Rockford, Illinois; Macon, Georgia; Mackinac, Michigan, St. Paul, Minnesota; Buffalo, New York; Fort Wayne, Indiana; Grand Rapids, Michigan; New Haven CT.; St. Louis, MO., and Crawfordsville...

I've never had a report card as early as this one from 1912. On the front cover is a short poem which reads as follows: "The Public School! Oh,let its light, Shine through our Country's story! Here lies her wealth, her strength, her might! Here rests her future glory." The card was for a fourth grader named Pearl Malone who did pretty well overall and was promoted to grade five. The school is in Greenville, Ohio and the teacher was Arline Smith. The card, which has a few pages, was signed repeatedly by John Malone. It measures 4-3/4" x 7-1/4". View more info

This Virginia College for girls began as a high school for girls. But in 1870 it became a junior college under the guidance of the Methodist church. It burned in December 1915 after which the church did not choose to rebuild. It's a long story but the school did reopen and remained so until 1976. What's interesting about this bulletin is the fact that it was published at the time the school reached its highest enrollment. But right after that it again dropped off. There are interesting pictures here -- math class and physics amidst the usual fare for women. Bulletin measures 5-3/4" x 9" and ha... View more info

This annual is not often seen because it's focused on just one segment of the senior class, those preparing for a degree in Forestry. The focus here is on the students, staff, and their accomplishments. Individual photographs of the seniors are very telling about the university itself. Back then there were very few female students, but of course that's not true today. If you are looking for someone who might be in here let me know and I will look for you. There's an alumni directory at the back which increases tyour chance of finding someone. booklet measures 8-1.4" x 10-1.4 and has 64 pages w... View more info

These old almuni magazines are wonderful adjuncts for genealogy buffs. If you have a family member who graduated from Wooster it would be a wonderful addition to the family archive.

The two most important are'lt dated, but I did find a very small date on the campus map -- 1998.The major brochure with the photo of FLW opens to reveal four panels with information about local buildings illustrated with eight sepia pictures. Turn it over and you have more info and three more photos. The second brochure tells the story of Wright's relationship with the college. Thirdly, we have a campus map. The only fault to these may not be a fault at all because it provides additional information. On the back o... View more info

Slim, but attractive, class book with just light wear to boards. Overall very clean inside and out and tightly bound. Small bit of foxing to first and last pages only.

Very handsome cover for the academy's annual book. Amazing, too, that the yapped edges remain -- usually the overhang causes them to tear and eventually fall off, or are trimmed off by the previous owner. There are a few small tears, but they've been discretely repaired on reverse side. Notre Dame opened as an all-girl school taught by the Ursuline nuns who originally came from Germany. The class of '22 consisted of 43 graduates with the following as class officers: school president -- Margaret Lutz; class president -- Mabel Brennan; secretary Mary Fahey; and treasurer -- Florence Champion.
