Ohio is known for producing some of the greatest minds of the twentieth century, and Powell Crosley is one of them.

For those who do not recognize Mr. Crosley’s name, some of his achievements include; creating the 700 WLW radio station, manufacturing Crosley automobiles, developing the Crosley radio, and longtime ownership of the Cincinnati Reds.  The library will host this program to be presented by former Wright State University professor, Eugene Wade.
