I will begin with an expression of my sincere gratitude to the Oberlin Historic Preservation Commission and the City of Oberlin. Without the Commissions support, and the leadership of Jane Blodgett, this project would not have taken place. I also want to thank O.H.I.O., Pat Murphy, Morag Boyd, Roland Bauman, Fran and Jack Bauman, Thelma Quinn Smith, Hank Annable, Chuck Bailey, Richard Hallock, Jean Wright and the many other people who gave me their time, their knowledge and best of all their pictures.
This is very much a work in progress and I am sure that many of you will be able to add to and enhance our knowledge of these buildings. I encourage all of you to call me at O.H.I.O. to discuss any additional information or insights you might have.
