Monument brings back memories - Akron Beacon Journal

Wed, Jan 11, 2012
Her father ran a hat business at the rear of the barbershop and beauty salon, she said. Along with cleaning and blocking hats, her father, Elmore Banton, who died in 1955, answered phones at the hotel and would clean up at night, she said. George Mathews and his wife were her godparents, she said, and she was named after George’s wife, Alberta. “The black barbershop is part of the black culture, where men would get together and talk,” said Williams, who taught school in Akron, lived in New York for four decades and now lives in Copley Township. “I remember buses coming with orchestras and singers … It was an exciting place.” The monument brings back memories for Deborah Williams, 62, of Akron. Her mother, Naomi Blake, was the last one to leave the beauty shop before the hotel closed, she said. Blake worked as a hair stylist for about a half century in Akron, mostly at the hotel. Jeffrey Bray, 67, of Akron, also has a connection to the hotel. His mother, the late Janice Bray, was responsible for booking the entertainers at the High Hat Lounge until she bought the club in 1971. It closed in the late 1970s. His father, the late Leon Bray, was a drummer who played at the High Hat a few times. Bray also is a drummer who sat in with musician Lou Donaldson at the age of 15 for one song and watched many jazz greats who played at the High Hat, including Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery, Dizzy Gillespie and Max Roach. Playing with Donaldson, he said, “was unbelievable, a good feeling.” News of the monument also brought back memories for Martyn Flunoy, 59, of Akron, who has a booklet for a black rubber industry employers group called the Alpha Omego club. The booklet marked the Sepia Rubber Carnival, held on March 27, 1941. His late mother, Blanche Flunoy, a factory worker at B.F. Goodrich, had collected the booklet. Inside the booklet, he found an advertisement for Banton’s hat shop that included a picture of the hotel. Flunoy, who works at Kent State University and plays drums with the Bizarros, remembers buying albums and singles at record stores on North Howard Street when he was a teenager. “It looks great,” he said of the monument. There’s some discrepancy as to the spelling of the hotel name over the years. While the inscription on the monument is spelled Hotel Matthews with two t’s and the owner George Mathews spelled his name with one, in his 1982 obituary, the name of the hotel was spelled Mathews. A photograph of the hotel in the 1941 booklet owned by Flunoy also spelled the name of the hotel as Mathews. But a 1930 photograph of the hotel on the Akron website shows the inscription on the hotel as Hotel Matthews. In her Akron home, Louise Jackson has an entire wall of family photos. Some are some pictures from the hotel, including one showing her at a dinner at the hotel. Jackson said Mathews treated everyone who worked at the hotel as family. “He loved people,” she said. “He was a loved man and respected by all.” Mathews, who died in 1982 at age 95, established a scholarship fund at the University of Akron in his name that was initially funded with a $25,000 donation.

Helen Marie Johnson Kessel — Whalan

Mon, Dec 26, 2011
Ledyard, Iowa, to John J. and Alvena Engelbarts Johnson. She attended the Ledyard Public School. On Feb. 1, 1950, she married Amos "Buster" Dale Kessel and they farmed near Elmore, Minn., and had a large Jersey dairy herd until they relocated to a farm in Whalan in 1973. Helen was a homemaker and enjoyed helping Buster outside with the farm activities.

OAK HARBOR -- The Oak Harbor Public Library houses the Local History and ... - Fremont News Messenger

Mon, Nov 28, 2011
This would be a good place for someone that's just starting to do genealogical research," Liske said. Those who can't find the information they need in Oak Harbor are encouraged to visit the Harris-Elmore Public Library or the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center in Fremont. Visitors also will find scrapbooks and old obituaries, plus meeting notes from several Oak Harbor clubs -- including the garden club, the Grange, the Thimble Club, the businessmen's association, the arts council and the Country Culture Club. They also will find a small book on parliamentary law, dated 1922, and Robert's Rules of Order. Both were the property of the Literary and Social Club. "The Literary and Social Club was instrumental in starting the library in 1908," Liske said. Normally, the center does not house enough items to warrant special exhibits. An exception was made this summer, when items from the now-closed Rocky Ridge Elementary School were displayed in the reading room. "We had about eight or 10 poster boards and six or eight tables full of stuff," Liske said. The library board approves donations. There is no place to house large items, but smaller ones are welcome. "It can be as small as a token," Liske said. "Anything that says, 'Oak Harbor,' or anything that was made in Oak Harbor." He hopes more people will volunteer to guide visitors in the local history and museum center. "It needs to grow. It needs somebody more than me," Liske said.
