Cleveland: Confused City on a Seesaw


My gratitude to Howard Allen, H. Jack Lang, Lillian Zevin, C. H. Cramer, and Grace Goulder Izant for their enthusiastic encouragement; to Howard B. Klein, for his pertinent counsel on how to revise and condense; to Sandra Clark, for her efficient retyping of a messy manuscript; and to Jacob Rosenheim of the Plain Dealer, Kate Prettyman of the Cleveland Public Library, and Virginia Hawley of the Western Reserve Historical Society for their help in locating old photographs.
