National Machinery Company World War II Scrap Drive photographsSave
Description: Six photographs document a World War II scrap drive held by the National Machinery Company of Tiffin, Ohio. The first photograph shows a display where participants could leave items to be recycled. Five other photographs depict workers moving an old tractor for salvage and preparing a truck full of scrap metal. The photographs measure 4" x 6" (10.16 x 15.24 cm). Recycling and scrap metal drives were one of the ways Americans supported the war effort during the Second World War. As steel and other materials were needed to make ships, weapons, and other tools for the war effort, Americans were called upon to recycle goods that were not deemed essential. Government-produced posters, radio commercials and advertisements encouraged scrap drives, which were often sponsored by schools or community groups. The National Machinery Company was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1874 and moved to Tiffin in 1882. It established a reputation for making quality tools, primarily for the railroad industry. The company won and Army Â Navy E Award during World War II for its efforts promoting the war effort. View on Ohio Memory.

St. Paul's Methodist Episcopal Church photographSave
Description: St. Paul's Methodist Episcopal Church in Tiffin. This church was home to early electrical illumination with an electric, brass chandelier. The history of the Methodist Church goes as far back as the first half of the 18th Century. The driving force behind its founding and philosophy was a man named John Wesley, who was a student at Oxford at the time when the ideas of the Methodist Church were being formed by students interested in religious study. The church became relatively popular in the early days of the United States among those living in the rugged lands being settled. It would come to be widespread throughout the state of Ohio, drawing people in with its idea that all people may go to heaven. Controversy within the Church occurred over divisions about the teachings of John Wesley and the increasingly divisive issue of whether or not it was immoral to keep slaves. This caused multiple divisions within the church and it splintered into numerous separate Methodist denominations. After over 100 years of a divided church, the various Methodist churches joined together and eventually the United Methodist Church was formed. View on Ohio Memory.

Description: This broadside, created in 1859 by the Democratic Party of Ohio, was directed to defeat William H. Gibson, the Radical Republican candidate for Congress, by reminding the public of his conviction in Ohio for embezzlement of state bonds. Gibson had participated in a cover-up of a deficiency in the Ohio Treasury, left by his predecessor, John G. Breslin. He was forced to resign as Ohio State Treasurer in 1857, and returned to Tiffin to start a law office. Gibson was Brigadier General of the Union Army’s 49th Ohio Volunteer Infantry during the American Civil War, and is remembered as a powerful orator and patriotic leader for his service in the war.

Description: The pictured weather vane is a replica of the one that was on top of the courthouse that served as Ohio's first capital building in Chillicothe from 1803-1810. Chillicothe was named the capital of the Northwest Territory in 1800 and became the first capital of the State of Ohio in 1803. The presence of influential men such as Thomas Worthington, the "father of Ohio statehood" and Edward Tiffin, Ohio's first governor, near Chillicothe made the city a convenient place to locate the capital. The capital was moved to Zanesville in 1810, but returned to Chillicothe in 1812. In 1816, Columbus became the permanent state capital.
The weather vane depicts a simplified version of the eagle from the Great Seal of the United States. It holds an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other. View on Ohio Memory.
