Join us with the Curator of Collections at the Litchfield Historical Society, Alex Dubois, as we talk about how this northeast section of Ohio was once owned by the state of Connecticut and the early stories that created the communities that we have today.

Ernie Hall is Ohio’s unsung aviator. An inventor, teacher, and mechanic, he spent 50 years employed in aviation. From working with the Wright Brothers to training pilots during World War I and World War II, Hall left a legacy that continues through the Ernie Hall Aviation Museum in Howland, Ohio. Join us with pilot Bob Griffin as we talk about Hall’s upbringing and career–as well as what it takes to build and operate an aircraft.

Kenneth Patchen was an American poet and novelist who experimented with different forms of writing and incorporated painting, drawing, and jazz music into his works. He received an award for life-long contribution to American letters from the National Foundation on the Arts and Humanities.

Patchen was largely self-taught and never seemed to gain widespread recognition from the prominent literary critics or university professors of his generation. He suffered an early tragedy when his younger sister Kathleen was struck and killed by a car in 1926.

Writing in a style often referred to as “jazz poetry,” Patchen struck up a publishing relationship and friendship with James Laughlin, the original publisher of New Directions, in 1936.

James Ward and William Doud Packard left a legacy in Warren through Packard Electric Company and Packard Motor Car Company. They were a product of their time while driving innovation and engineering to new levels and leaving a lasting legacy on the city today.
