Athens County

Book Description:

Early days in ATHENS County, OH, Ohio University, and the communities of Athens, Nelsonville and Albany, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 53 Page Booklet reprinted from the 1892 Centennial edition of Henry Howe's Historical Collections of Ohio and several other sources. The spiral-bound booklet is printed one-sided on 60# paper with the print enlarged 10% for easier reading. A sheet of clear vinyl has been added to protect the front cover. Among the many fascinating topics in the booklet are: the autobiography of Thomas Ewing, the Coon-Skin Library, the story of John Welch - one of Ohio's strong men, pioneer hardships, and the captivity and escape from Indians of Moses Hewit, a 1933 look at the history of newspapers in the county, a look at Ohio University's early years, excerpts from a freshman student's letters home in 1957-58 recalling dorm life, J-Prom and a spring riot (illustrated with snapshots), pictures from a 1921 Athena showing sports uniforms, "hoo hoos," etc. GENEALOGY BUFFS will find a list of 1888 county officers and businesses. From a 1941 Ohio history there are brief articles on Dr. H. L. True - a naturalist from Athens, and some of the men whose names became better known over the years as buildings to thousands of Ohio U students -- Putnam, Cutler, Ewing and McGuffey. There's also some brief excerpts from The Ohio Guide, a 1940 WPA project. A map identifying Ohio's 88 counties and a map of 1805 Ohio are included, along with a map of the Ohio University Campus as it appeared in a 1958 Bulletin (catalog).
