Oberlin Architecture, College and Town

| Filed under: Regional Interest
Blodgett Book Cover

This illustrated guide to the architecture of Oberlin, Ohio, mixes the remarkable social history of college and town with architectural commentary about one hundred thirty-two buildings built between 1837 and 1977. The result is a unique record of the ways in which the people of one Midwestern college town organized and housed their lives over the past one hundred fifty years, from the layout of the village square in 1833 to distinguished samples from the work of such twentieth-century architects as Cass Gilbert, Frank Lloyd Wright, Wallace Harrison, Minoru Yamasaki, Hugh Stubbins and Robert Venturi.

The Ohio

and | Filed under: U.S. History
Jakle and McCollum cover

The first half of the 20th century was a period of great change along the historic Ohio River corridor. It was then that the Ohio became the most heavily engineered river in the world, facilitating its use as an artery of commerce. It was also a period of great change in transportation as different means of travel appeared along the margins of this storied waterway. And it was the era of the picture postcard, in which postcard publishing companies chose views for the public to buy and share with family and friends via the United States Postal Service.

 


The Ohio & Erie Canal

| Filed under: Regional Interest
Woods cover

The people who lived and worked on and alongside the Ohio & Erie Canal had a vocabulary all their own. Now listed for the first time in one source are the terms they used to describe the boats, crews, and canals. Newspaper and magazine articles about the construction and operation of Ohio’s canal system reveal a terminology filled with conflicting definitions. Engineers, crew members, and citizens each had their own jargons. To clear up the confusion, Terry K. Woods provides a dictionary of primary terms selected from those most frequently used in the official reports of the Ohio Canal Commissioners and the Board of Public Works. He also includes secondary terms taken from his interviews with ex-boatmen in the late 1960s and early 1970s and from his more than 25 years of research on the canals.
