Speaker series to highlight history of Wholly Toledo businesses

In conjunction with its current exhibition Wholly Toledo: The Business and Industry That Shaped the City, The University of Toledos Ward M.

The free, public talks will be held at 3 p.m. in the Canaday Center on the fifth floor of Carlson Library.

The schedule will be:

Wednesday, March 16, 2011: Jack Paquette, a retired Owens-Illinois vice president and author of several books about Ohios glass industry, will speak on the early history of Owens-Illinois. He will sign copies of two of his glass histories, The Glassmakers, Revisited (2010) and Blowpipes (2002), as well as his memoir about northwest Ohio, A Boys Journey Through the Great Depression (2005).
