University District Organization Documents Neighborhood History

Members of the University District Organization are collecting historical materials that document the unique character of their neighborhood.  Memorabilia that they have acquired so far is being displayed in a free exhibit, “History Shared, History Saved.”  It is in the Northwood-High Building at 2231 N. High St. and runs through April 30.  The project began in 2007.  In addition to collecting materials, they are raising money to support their long term preservation.  Eventually, the University District Collection will be transferred to the Ohio Historical Society.  To learn more see the Columbus Dispatch:

    I am happy and proud that the “Faculty Letters” I wrote when I was Director of The Wesley Foundation will be included. Along with other memorabilia they will shed light on the intellectual and spiritual life of the 1970s. Thank you to everyone.
