During 1999, The Enquirer and the Cincinnati Museum Center have looked back at events and people that shaped the Tristate during the 20th century. On the first day of each month, we featured Cincinnati historical highlights for that month.
Each part of the series is posted at Enquirer.com/century.
Information was compiled by Donna M. DeBlasio, senior historian for Cincinnati Museum Center, and Enquirer reporters John Johnston and Mark Curnutte.
The museum center is home to the Cincinnati History Museum (one of the country's largest urban history museums) and the Cincinnati Historical Society Research Library (the largest repository for the region's history). For information on the center, which houses other museums and attractions, visit its Web site at www.cincymuseum.org or call 287-7000 or (800) 733-2077.
