The Cleveland Memory Project

Established in 2002, the Cleveland Memory Project offers "an engaging look at Cleveland History." The multi-faceted project was created by the Michael Schwartz Library at the Cleveland State University, along with a long list of collaborating organizations in Northeast Ohio. The intent of the Project is to serve the needs of both casual browsers and serious researchers by providing access to photographs, video and audio recordings, digitized documents, and e-books. Currently the site is celebrating Black History Month, with a slideshow of local firsts, such as Carl B. Stokes, first elected Black mayor of a major U.S. city. The site also features a Today in History photograph; recent examples include Shaker Heights native Paul Newman, posted on January 26, 2016, the day that would have been the actor's 91st birthday, and an aerial view of the large crowd gathered for a memorial service for Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968, posted January 12, 2016. Select "Browse Web Exhibits" for a long list of web exhibitions, or read about how to participate in building Cleveland memory, as a volunteer or as a donor of historical materials.
