Historical interest Items, etc.:
    Historical Collections of Ohio - The Centinial Edition, by Henry Howe. This book was
         written in 1888 and may contain language to particular ethnic groups that some
         may find offensive today. It is essential that history not be "judged" using a modern
         day point-of-view. The views of the past must be taken in context of how people
         generally thought "back in the day."
- quoted from the web site.


Libraries & Newspapers:
    Ohio Wesleyan University Libraries - Archives of Ohio United Methodism. "The
         collection functions as an archival and historical repository and research center.
         Items which represent the heritage of The United Methodist Church in Ohio from its
         inception up to and including the present day will be selected. Primary emphasis is
         on the East and West Ohio Conferences with other materials maintained from
         antecedent conferences" - quote from the website.
