Who played Uncle Henry in The Wizard of Oz? Where did Lillian Gish attend school? Who was Rose Bampton? What was Tommy Henrich’s nickname? Did Al Capone really visit Columbia Heights?
The Massillon Museum’s History Discussion Group will talk about “Famous Massillonians and Famous Visitors” at its monthly session at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 4.
Participants are invited to bring memories, photographs, or memorabilia. Many participants enjoy reminiscing, while others simply enjoy listening.
The History Group meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 10:00 a.m. until noon to chat casually about a pre-announced topic, usually a narrow segment of Massillon history. The November subject will be “Show and Tell.”
The “Massillon Remembers” group is free and open to everyone; new participants are welcome at any time. Some people come to every session; others attend when the topic is of particular interest. No reservations are required. Coffee and doughnuts are available for a donation. Chris Craft moderates the sessions.
The history discussion is held in the Museum’s Fred F. Silk Community Room, which is home to Studio M. During the July session, the group will be surrounded by photographs taken by supporters of Relay for Life.
The Massillon Museum is located at 121 Lincoln Way East (Ohio 172), in downtown Massillon. For more information, call the Massillon Museum at 330-833-4061 or visit www.massillonmuseum.org.
