Overview

Lost Cleveland is an engrossing excursion into the city's rarefied architectural air during its heyday as the sixth-largest city in the country. Author Michael DeAloia recounts the histories of seven culturally significant and iconic architectural gems that defined Cleveland's position of wealth and importance during the industrial age. Inspired by noble visions of Cleveland's most elite residents, these structures reflect the vigor and imagination that suffused city leaders. From Severance Hall, still home to the Cleveland Orchestra and the only structure in this collection that remains standing, to "Andrew's Folly," the grandest house built on legendary Millionaire's Row, Lost Cleveland provides a revealing historical retrospective on the growth, development and ultimate decline of the North Coast's greatest city.

Meet the Author

Michael DeAloia has enjoyed working with and for some of the best companies in the Cleveland area. He has suggested to everyone he talks to "that the best things in my life--both professionally and personally--have happened in Cleveland." He is perhaps best known for his term with the City of Cleveland as the senior executive for technology development, or "Tech Czar," where he was responsible for the economic development of the technology industries in the city. During his tenure as the "Tech Czar," Michael was able to recruit thirty-seven tech companies into the city of Cleveland, which brought or created nearly one thousand jobs. He was also instrumental in developing the eTech Hatchery, Hanna Tech Hotel, Idea Center and the Tyler Elevator Complex as tech hubs for the city.

He was also the co-founder and CFO of BlueBridge Networks, a Cleveland, Ohio-based provider of data center services. Michael also worked for LNE Group, FIT Technologies, Saltz, Shamis & Goldfarb, Ernst & Young, National City Venture Capital and National City Bank.

Michael is a nationally recognized blogger through his "Tech Czar Notes" and "Cool History of Cleveland" blogs. He has also spoken at numerous national economic development, technology and social media events, including NOTACON, Gov 2.5, the Online Marketing Summit and the Cool Twitter Conference and many others. He has appeared on the Fox News channel's John Stoessel Show and was included in the Drew Carey-supported Reason Foundation documentary on Cleveland titled Reason Saves Cleveland. He has also published two books of poetry: Roses on the Gates of Hell and Forever Mantras. He sits on the board of trustees for the Ingenuity Festival. Michael earned his MBA from Case Western Reserve University and his bachelor's degree from Xavier University. Michael currently lives in Ohio City and is enjoying the bachelor lifestyle.
