Today begins Archives Month, when repositories of historical materials promote the importance of archives in American society. The theme for Ohio Archives Month is The Peoples of Ohio. Many archives throughout Ohio will be offering special events and presentations on that theme using materials from their collections. Although we do not have specific events for Archives Month here at the Sandusky Library this year, we will be particiating in a special event at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Archives in Cleveland: The Peoples of Ohio: Musicians and Music from Polonaise to Polka and Punk, at 7PM on Tuesday, October 2 (tomorrow, as I write this). Our contribution is sheet music of several songs written for Sandusky places and events (some songs written by local composers): Cedar Point, That's The Place (1922); The Put-in-Bay Song (1911); and Ohio (composed by a Sanduskian, 1938). We may also talk about our plans for a video program about "Music at the Old Cedar Point."
Admission to this event is free, but registration is required. Follow the link above for more information.
