Historical Sketch


The Sight Center of Toledo was originally founded in 1923 under the name Toledo Society for the Blind.  The first executive secretary was Dr. Harry Will, as associate professor of Sociology at the University of Toledo.  The society was housed in the former Adams Street Mission building (572 Ontario Street), but in 1927 it bought a house at 718 Michigan Street with the money left to it by glass industrialist Edward Drummond Libbey.  This building was used for group events and provided no residency accommodations.  Also that year, the organization drafted articles of incorporation and a constitution.  The Toledo Society for the Blind was supported in its early years by the Lion’s Club, the Ohio Commission for the Blind, LaSalle and Koch Department Store, the Security Savings Bank and Trust, the Toledo Council of Catholic Women, the Girl Scouts, Mrs. Noah Swayne (who left 1/16 of her estate to the organization), and the Toledo Committee of the American Foundation for the Blind.  This foundation sponsored a visit by Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan Macy in January 1925. 


The Society worked to improve the lives of Toledo area persons with visual impairments by conducting vocational and life skills workshops and hosting social events.  Children who were visually impaired attended sight saving classes at Jefferson, Lincoln, and LaGrange schools where they also received vocational and social training.


In the 1930s, Mrs. Estelle Parsons became the executive secretary and Edward E. Evans became the president of the executive board.  The mission of the board was “to further the interests of the blind and to open to them all possible avenues to independence, all possible avenues to independence, education, and recreation.”  The Society continued to receive aid from the Lion’s Clubs and the Ohio Commission for the Blind, and also started receiving help form the Community Chest, the Toledo Women’s Club, the Business and Professional Women’s Club, and wealthy individuals. Along with the Society’s traditional vocational workshops and sight saving classes, two social clubs, The Happy Times Club and the Progressive Club, were formed.  In March 1934, the Society ordered its first talking book machine, and by September 1939 had procured two seeing-eye dogs.  The Society for the Blind continued to sponsor social gatherings such as educational lectures, dances, swimming at the “Y”, and a day at Lake Erie.


In the 1940s the Society had a few major events including the publishing of its history, “A Record of Friendly Service to the Blind.”  The organization supported the war effort by making waterproof boxes to help ship supplies for soldiers in the war and made bandages for Toledo Hospital.  The development of the audio weighing scale provided new job openings for the blind and the Society expanded by purchasing the old Smead School site.  The Society continued to grow despite the departure of long-time executive secretary Estelle Parsons, who retired in 1949.


In the 1950s J. J. Vischel left the organization $50,000.  The executive council expanded to 13 people to meet the expanding needs and services.  From 1958 to 1972 Lyle Kirk served at executive director and Linda Clark, who served as executive secretary throughout this decade, retired.  In 1956 they moved to the organization’s current home on Canton Street in downtown Toledo.  In the 1960s a new 1800 foot addition was made to the industrial department, including remodeling of three parking areas. 


In the 1970s the Society opened a snack bar for the community, and in 1978 it purchased the Thermoform Braille Duplicator.  The following year the organization changed its name to the Sight Center of Toledo.


In the 1980s the Sight Center was forced, despite deficit spending to make cut backs to save money and to start charging for previously free services.  In 1980 the organization obtained Socrates, the Talking Computer, allowing those who were visually impaired to become computer literate.  In July 1982 the organization began broadcasting the news to the blind.  By the end of the decade, SCAN, the Sight Center Audio Network, began airing news from local newspapers and national magazines. 


In the 1990s, the organization continued to development new ways to use technology to improve the lives of the visually impaired.  In 1995, executive director Barry McEwen resigned, and John Davies took over the position.  In 1999, the Sight Center’s building on Canton Avenue was purchased by the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, and plans began for a new building.


Scope and Content Note


The records of the Sight Center of Toledo are arranged in three series:  Series I, Audio Visual Materials; Series II, Administrative Records; and Series III, Newspaper Clippings and Scrapbooks. 


Series I, Audio Visual Materials, is arranged in two sub-series by format.  Subseries A, Photographs, is arranged alphabetically by subject.  An extensive item-level description of the photographs is included in this inventory.  The photographs show activities of the organization (both social and service related) and persons involved with the organization either as staff, guests, or clients.  Box 5 includes photographs of people who did not fit into one of the other categories of photographs.  All photographs are identified by name and date where known, size, and whether black and white or color.  Negatives are filed with the photographs.  Subseries B, Other Formats, consists of film and video about Sight Center activities.  Included are public service announcements for the Center produced by TV-Channel 24, Toledo, as well as video of Sight Center events covered by Toledo news stations.  One oral history interview of a Sight Center client is also included.


Series II, Administrative Files, is arranged alphabetically by subject.  This series includes annual reports, brochures, limited correspondence, and files on the history of the organization.  Publications include the newsletters Goin’s On and Sightings, manuals, and publications produced for clients on preventing blindness. 


Series III, Newspaper Clippings and Scrapbooks, consists of clippings about Toledo Society for the Blind and Sight Center activities and services from its earliest days arranged chronologically.  Loose clippings are arranged in folders chronologically, while materials in the scrapbooks remain in their original order and are arranged largely in chronological order within the books.  The scrapbooks contain occasional photographs and other materials.  The scrapbooks are fragile and should be handled with care.  A detailed card index to the clippings and scrapbooks produced by a Sight Center volunteer is included as boxes (nos. here).
