Scope and Content Note


            This collection was sorted out of larger donations made by Mr. Duhaime to the Canaday Center and contains many items related to Toledo history.  It has been separated according to medium and arranged alphabetically by folder title.


            The first folder, Booklets – Ohio History, is made up of a number of pamphlets and booklets on the history of Ohio.  Titles include: “Ohio, the Gateway of the West,” “Highlights of Ohio History” and “The Indian Wars.”


            The second folder, Booklets – Toledo Industry, contains brochures, booklets and other items related to Toledo’s industry.  Included are “The New East Toledo,” “The Drama of Glass,” and a certificate good for “one railroad tour around Toledo on the Toledo Terminal Railroad.”


            The third item is a Souvenir Stereoscope book that commemorates the Civic Parade and Installation Ceremony honoring the Rt. Rev. Joseph Schrembs, the first bishop of the Diocese of Toledo in October of 1911.


            The fourth folder, Music Scores, contains the following items: “Songs of America” published by the Lamson Brothers Company of Toledo and “We’re Strong For Toledo” a song written by Joe Murphy shortly after World War Two.   Also included are “The Life of a News Boy” and “Meet Me at White City” both of which were written by W.H. Woodward. 


            The fifth folder, Photographs, contains a large number of images from the first half of the 20th century detailing the Toledo area.  Included are shots of the Mud Hens baseball team, buildings, people and events.
