"Clevelanders are rediscovering the richness of their history, and the encyclopedia project has played a vital role in this process." -- Northwest Ohio Quarterly

"These two volumes clearly establish a standard for encyclopedias devoted to city history and biography." -- Choice

"Both volumes are interesting to read and are useful reference tools." -- American Reference Books Annual

The first edition of this remarkable encyclopedia was published in 1987 to enthusiastic reviews. Out of print for several years, the Encyclopedia is now being reissued in an expanded, two-volume format to commemorate the bicentennial of Cleveland's founding. Volume One, The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History, contains more than 2000 entries, 150 photographs, maps and charts. Volume Two, the Dictionary of Cleveland Biography, with over 1600 entries, is the first major biographical guide to Cleveland published since the 1920s.
