Anyone who has lived or worked in the neighborhood around Ohio State, will be interested in the UDO Archives Committee's new book just published by the History Press. The Ohio State University District: A Neighborhood History collects 100 years of first-hand accounts of life in this historic, diverse, lively and sometimes crazy district. Stories range from picnics in the bucolic University Woods to riots and teargas along High Street. Buckets of beer? Zoning wars? Charbert’s, Larry’s, Hennick’s and Long’s? The Earth Shoe store? They all come to life on the pages of this book, along with a century of photos.
It's a great holiday gift idea! $19.99 at bookstores and Amazon. All proceeds go to the University District Organization.
