Salem Public Library is pleased to invite the public to join YSU Associate Professor Thomas E. Leary online, via Zoom, on Monday, September 28, 2020, from 6:30-7:30 pm to delve into the history of the Cherry Valley Beehive Coke Ovens of Leetonia, Ohio and to experience the scope and scale of industrial production as it once was (and, in some places, still exists). The talk will incorporate the local beehives in the larger context of steel heritage preservation with mention of additional sites and projects of interest.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED and may be done online at www.salem.lib.oh.us or by calling the library at 330-332-0042. The talk is open to the public and free of cost to attend.

He has a doctorate in American Civilization from Brown University. His work has focused on the history of manufacturing, in particular the steel industry. In 1999, he began work at YSU and is currently the Director of the Center for Applied History.
