UPDATE!  2014!
Please follow this link to my presentation online.

On Tuesday, April 19, 2011, I have been invited to speak to the Kent Rotary, Kent, Ohio on the topic of the construction of Mogadore Reservoir and Dam beginning in 1934.  The WPA created the Dam and completed most of the dredging and formation of the Mogadore basin.  My presentation will include rare photographs and documents from the construction of the project as well as historical and modern geological information about the project and its impact on the Portage County, and Summit County, Ohio regions.
