Roy Grove was a cartoonist for the news syndicate Newspaper Enterprise Association from 1917 through the mid-1920's. Covering Europe during World War I, he captured the every-day life of the American soldier away from home for readers of NEA's 326 daily newspapers in the United States, including the Cleveland Press. After the war, Grove went on to cover sports for the same news syndicate.

The Roy Grove Cartoon Collection, donated to Special Collections in the Cleveland State University Library by the Gardner family, contains 64 images of cartoons drawn by Grove in both of these genres.

Picnicking at North Chagrin Reservation, awaiting the return of the buzzards at Hinkley Reservation, tobogganing down the slide at the Mill Stream Run Reservation, horseback riding at Big Creek... most of us can reminisce of time well-spent at one of Cleveland's sixteen Metroparks.

Cleveland Memory revisits some of those experiences with its new collection of images, "The Photographs of the Cleveland Metroparks," over 100 photos representing 9 of Cleveland's Metroparks, Ohio's oldest park district.

Special Collections at the Michael Schwartz Library Wins 2010 OHRAB Achievement Award

Bill Barrow receiving plaque
(From left) Glenda Thornton, Bill Barrow & Jill Tatem.

Special Collections at the Michael Schwartz Library, Cleveland State University has been awarded the 2010 Achievement Award from the Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board. The award is presented annually by OHRAB in recognition of significant accomplishments in preserving and improving access to historical records in any format by an Ohio archival institution.

According to the Board:

Cleveland State's Special Collections Department has led the Cleveland Memory Project since its beginning in 2002. Institutions as diverse as the Cuyahoga County Engineer's Office, Berea Children's Home, Rocky River Public Library, Hathaway Brown School, and Lakewood Historical Society have contributed materials from their collections to Cleveland Memory. Project partners have made more than 42,000 images and other historic items available online. Practicum and internship opportunities provide real world experience to students while bringing fresh from the classroom perspectives to practitioners. Cleveland Memory is a model of multi-institutional collaboration melding local collection knowledge, shared infrastructure, and professional development opportunities. OHRAB congratulates Cleveland State University and its partners for expanding access to Ohio's historic resources.

Bill Barrow, the Special Collections Librarian at the Michael Schwartz Library, commented on the award with the following, "We all greatly appreciate this important recognition from the Ohio Historic Records Advisory Board, in awarding us one of their two awards in kicking off their new achievement awards programs."

Noting the many collaborations involved in the project, Bill Barrow goes on to say, "However formally awarded, this is an honor we all share. The nomination stressed the multi-level community collaboration of CSU departments, KSU library practicum students, various partnering public libraries, historical societies and government agencies sharing resources and the partners in the Ohio's Heritage NE [Northeast], all collaborating to make information on the region's history available to its citizens. We felt the process by which Cleveland Memory (and OHNE) were built is as important as the digital content it provides."

The Achievement Award was recently presented to Bill Barrow, the Special Collections Librarian at Michael Schwartz Library and Glenda Thornton, Director of the Michael Schwartz Library by Jill Tatem, University Archivist, Case Western Reserve University. The award consisted of a plaque and a $700 check. The plaque is inscribed in part with the message, "For its work making resources of Ohio History available to a broader public in the Cleveland Memory project," while the check will go toward a project involving the digitization of Cleveland's first five directories. According to Bill Barrow, "the output of this overall project would be a geo-referenced database of 15,500 names, occupations, etc., gleaned from those directories and available for research into the first half-century of Cleveland history."

Spectrum: The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues--A Cleveland Public Library Event

Get in on the conversation on Friday, May 18, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. at Spectrum: The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues, a FREE and open to the public collaborative effort between the Cleveland Public Library and Cleveland Public Art. The event will be held at the Cleveland Public Theatre, 6415 Detroit Avenue, with a reception at 6:30 p.m. In its third year, Spectrum has brought influential and innovative thinkers in art and popular culture to talk about their work, ideas and theories.

This program engages the diverse Cleveland community in two public conversations per year and is supported by the Cleveland Public Library's Lockwood Thompson Fund. The Spectrum 2007 series is Pen & Ink. Words and images have played a crucial role in storytelling and visual communication. Artists and writers continue to push in new directions while challenging the perceptions of high and low art, often with irreverence and commentary. The first dialogue will feature cartoonist and author Art Spiegelman, with host and moderator Michael Kimmelman, Chief Art Critic for the New York Times.

Art Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy box and onto the literature shelves. He won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Maus and Maus II, the story of his parents' survival of the Nazi regime and lives later in America. His work has been published in many periodicals, including The New Yorker. In 2004 he completed In the Shadow of Now Towers.

Moderator Michael Kimmelman, educated at Yale and Harvard, is the author of several acclaimed books, most recently The Accidental Masterpiece: On the Art of Life and Vice-Versa. He has written and hosted various television shows about the arts and is also a pianist. Seating is limited. RSVP by calling 216-621-5330 or e-mail contactus@clevelandpublicart.org by May 16. For more information, call 216-623-2869.

Start Fresh @ Cleveland Public Library

September is "fine free" with a "no questions asked" amnesty period at Cleveland Public Library. You remove the embarrassment and fear of paying large fines as obstacles to the return of long-overdue materials. Materials returned need to be in good condition; no questions will be asked nor fines charged.

The purpose of the amnesty is to promote the return of needed Library materials, to promote the increased use of the Library, and to prepare patrons for a materials recovery program set to begin in October. The amnesty does not include overdue fines still on record from previously returned materials.

For patrons who owe fines or fees on previously returned materials, we will make it easy for you to START FRESH. Pay 50% of the balance, and the remaining 50% will be waived, with the exception of lost items that belong to other CLEVNET libraries and process fees from other CLEVNET libraries.

For questions about the "Start Fresh" amnesty rules, please contact the Lending Department at Main Library: (216) 623-2872.

Still Covering the City With Lines; d.a. levy @70

I have a city to cover with lines -- d.a. levy, from Cleveland Undercovers, 1966

It's hard to believe that famed Cleveland poet, publisher and artist d.a levy would have celebrated his 70th birthday this October 29th.

levy

Darryl Allen Levy was born on October 29, 1942 in Cleveland. In the early 1960s, levy (who then went by the name "d.a. levy") was a leader in Cleveland's small press and poetry scenes, writing and publishing his own work as well as that of his friends and contemporaries under his Renegade and Seven Flowers presses.

By the mid '60s levy began attending local poetry events around the city including the Fenn College Poetry Workshop series with CSU Poetry Center founder Lewis Turco. Intrigued by poetry readings he attended while visiting friends in New York City, levy initiated some of Cleveland's first free-forum coffeehouse readings. The Gate Coffeehouse in the basement of Trinity Cathedral across from Cleveland State University was the site of many such readings, one of which led to levy's arrest from a Nov. 15, 1966 reading there where he accepted and then read poetry submitted by juveniles. City officials deemed the work "obscene" and levy was charged with "contributing to the delinquency of minors."

This wasn't levy's first brush with the law over issues of censorship; the Asphodel Bookstore, run by levy's friend, bookseller Jim Lowell, was raided by Cleveland Police earlier in 1966. Several books and poetry materials including those of levy's were confiscated and never returned. Both levy and Lowell were charged with "possession and distribution of allegedly obscene literature." The case attracted national attention drawing supporters such as poet Allen Ginsberg and the musical group The Fugs who later came to Cleveland to perform at a benefit to aid in the duo's legal defense.

levy continued to create his own art and promote other poets and artists throughout the 1960s, leading the "mimeograph revolution" publishing Cleveland's premier alternative newspapers The Buddhist Third Class Junkmail Oracle and The Marrahwannah Quarterly. Both showcased the works of local and national poets and artists. He responded to the cultural and political turmoil of the times by creating profound concrete and lyrical poetry often influenced by his interest in Buddhism and mysticsm.

Over time, levy became frustrated with a perceived lack of appreciation for his and others' poetry and art. Coupled with his plea of "no contest" for his earlier arrest in lieu of a prison sentence, levy's behavior grew increasingly erratic. In late 1968 he began to tell friends that he was "leaving Cleveland," and gave away or destroyed much of his poetry/art and personal belongings. Sadly, on November 24, 1968, levy took his own life. He was 26 years old.

The Michael Schwartz Library is committed to honoring his legacy by preserving and sharing his works and related resources on a global level. Over the past 10 years the Library's Special Collections has acquired and digitized hundreds of items by or about d.a. and presents them to the world on the d.a. levy collection in Cleveland Memory. The site is our way of continuing to "cover the city" and the world with his lines.

Happy birthday, d.a.! -- Joanne Cornelius, DPU/Course Reserves Coordinator, Michael Schwartz Library

Sunday afternoon with Susan Orlean at CPL

Susan Orlean will appear as a part of CPL's "Sunday Afternoons for Writers and Readers" on November 27, 2005 at 2 p.m. in the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium of the Main Library.

Born in Cleveland, Ms. Orlean has had a career as a writer that has taken her from the surf girls of Maui to the Florida swamps. Each topic she covers leaves the reader better informed and wanting more. The story of John Laroche and the culture that surrounds orchids, The Orchid Thief read like beautifully constructed fiction.
