East Liverpool Historical Society



When we did the interview with Dr. Herschel Rubin for the ELHS Web Site he allowed us to borrow a scapbook he and his wife, Elsa had collected and compiled concerning the Junior Jaycees in ELO of which Dr. Rubin was president of for awhile. The time period covered was 1949 -1950 and it covered now only the Jaycees and many of its activities but also other events in East Liverpool duing that same period of time. We will share with all here some portions from that Scrapbook as it truly is a window on a piece of East Liverpool History.

This scrapbook covers primarily 1949 with a little bit of 1950. There were various Jaycee activities, there were the usual summer things that are mentioned some information about in the scrapbook. Such as bowling, golf, softball and so on. There there was a parade in downtown East Liverpool that attracted 15,000+ people to watch it to the downtown. There was the annual Tri-State Community Picnic held at Rock Springs Park in August. The 24th annual Dahlia and Flower Show held at Memorial Auditorium in September. The annual ELA to's Football Dinner in December with Ohio State buckeyes head coach Woody Hayes as primary speaker. The year finished up with the annual downtown Christmas decorating, Christmas parade, and the arrival of Santa. Most of these events get good coverage in the scrapbook.

Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
