How do you keep a Cleveland historical website up to date in a digital world?
“It’s like painting the Golden Gate Bridge,” said John Grabowski, Ph.D. on the subject of his Encyclopedia of Cleveland History online archive. “You start at one end, finish it and start all over again.”
The website contains some 4,400 Cleveland subjects, plus images and vintage film clips.
From A (A. LoPresti and Sons) to Z (Zucker, Henry L.), the site is constantly updated, a much more daunting task than it was when the first hard-cover book was published in 1987.
“That was the first modern American urban history in encyclopedic format,” he said. “We came out before New York did.”
What was done first in Cleveland in collaboration with the Western Reserve Historical Society and Case Western Reserve University is today considered commonplace.
