Overview


Founded in 1788 along the Ohio River, Cincinnati was the major city

in the Northwest Territory for several decades. As it has developed into

its third century, Cincinnati’s innovations, service, manufacturing, arts,

and athletics mark it as a place with a vibrant and varied heritage. The

contributions of interesting and unique personalities add to the city’s

dynamism: William Holmes McGuffey and his creation of a nation’s

textbooks; civil rights activists Ted Berry, Fred Shuttlesworth, and Marian

Berry; iconic personalities like baseball star Pete Rose and silent film actress

Theda Bara; grocery entrepreneur Barney Kroger; cooperative education

creator Herman Schneider; polio vaccine pioneer Albert Sabin; Joseph

Strauss, the design engineer of the Golden Gate Bridge; Paul Brown, one of

the NFL’s greatest coaches; Henry Heimlich, whose Heimlich maneuver has

saved countless lives; and Benadryl inventor George Rieveschl. But it is also

the philanthropists and business leaders; the cultural and political figures;

the teachers and community workers; and even the intriguing characters

and everyday citizens who make Cincinnati an interesting place on the map.

This book tells their stories.
