Description: Three photographs document a Soap Box Derby race in Akron, Ohio. Myron Scott, a Dayton Daily News photographer, established the All-American Soap Box Derby in Dayton in 1933. The first race was such a success that another was planned for the following year, with support of newspapers across the country. Akron Beacon Journal sports editor Jim Schlemmer was instrumental in garnering support from Akron's rubber companies for the race. Shortly after the 1934 race, a delegation from Akron met with Derby sponsor Chevrolet to explore the possibility of making the Derby a national event and moving it to Akron. They were successful and in 1935 the Soap Box Derby was held in Akron on Tallmadge Hill. The following year the Derby was held at Derby Downs, a Works Progress Administration project built adjacent to the Akron Municipal Airport. Each summer the Derby attracts youth from all over the world to compete in the Gravity Grand Prix. The photographs measure 3" x 5" (7.62 x 12.7 cm). View on Ohio Memory.

Description: Photograph of a crowd waiting inside the front doors on a cold day for the store day to begin, at the F. & R. Lazarus Company ca. 1951. Between 1851 and 1965, the F & R Lazarus Company retail store dominated the trade and physical landscape of Columbus. The company rose from its early years as a men's clothier in a 20 x 40 foot room downtown, to its position by 1965 as a member of the largest department store chain, Federated Department Stores. Lazarus' growth reflects that of the capital city; from small beginnings through a "golden age" of downtown development, and eventually branching out into the surrounding countryside. In 2003, the Lazarus Company was incorporated with Macy's, a member of the Federated Department stores, and is no longer in existence. View on Ohio Memory.

McKinley National Memorial Rededication Parade photographsSave
Description: Four photographs document events in Canton, Ohio that marked the 50th anniversary of the death of President William McKinley. The anniversary was marked by the rededication of the McKinley Memorial and a parade. The parade followed the route taken by the McKinley funeral procession in 1901. Various industries were invited to participate in the parade. Among the floats was "Remember the Maine," sponsored by the Timken Roller Bearing Company. The final image shows the end of the parade at the memorial. The photographs measure between 2.5" x 6" (6.35 x 15.24 cm) and 5" x 8" (12.7 x 20.32 cm). William McKinley (1843-1901), the twenty-fifth president of the United States, was born in Niles, Ohio. He enlisted in the army at the outbreak of the Civil War and, after being mustered out, studied law and opened a law office in Canton, Ohio. McKinley served in the U.S. Congress for 14 years, and became president in 1897, largely due to the influence of Marcus Hanna, boss of the Cleveland political machine. McKinley was most noted for his foreign policy and the conduct of the Spanish-American War in 1898. It was during McKinley's administration that the U.S. acquired its first overseas possessions in the Philippines, Guam, and Puerto Rico. He was re-elected in 1900, but was assassinated by anarchist Leon Czolgosz in 1901. President McKinley was shot in Buffalo, New York on September 6th, died there on September 11th and was buried in Canton on September 19, 1901. His running mate, Theodore Roosevelt, then became president. View on Ohio Memory.
