History Month Poster 2012

Every year in October, the Society of Ohio Archivists sponsors "Archives Month in Ohio" in order to bring awareness to the rich historical materials contained in the state's libraries, museums, and historical organizations. The theme for Archives Month 2012, "Peoples of Ohio," offers archival centers across Ohio an opportunity to feature the diverse groups and cultures that are or have been part of Ohio's population.

The 2012 Archives Month poster, designed by Tutti Jackson of the Ohio Historical Society, commemorates this theme by combining images contributed from 10 archives and libraries in the state to create a visual pastiche of Ohio's rich ethnic heritage. One of the photos featured on the poster is Cleveland Memory's own "beet lady," Rose Thomas as photographed in 1947 showing off her beets at the West Side Market. The photo is part of the Cleveland Press Collection in Special Collections at the Michael Schwartz Library, Cleveland State University.
