This is the only non-profit group dedicated to saving the Libbey High School campus.  We tried but did not succeed.  Now we work for the betterment of the neighborhoods that made Libbey such a rich environment.

MEETING DATES. 

Our next meeting of the Libbey High School Alumni, Inc. will be the second Tuesday in April 2013 (April 9, 2013) starting at 6:30 PM. Bring a contribution to our potluck if you wish.    Please RSVP me (grrreenrax@yahoo.com) if you wish to attend.    We will be meeting at the Believe Center (in the Aurora Gonzalez Center on Aurora L.

 Link to Nomination


Unfortunately, the link to the Libbey nomination on our blog no longer works.  This could be a case where the destruction of the school resulted in the elimination of the link.  If a search is done on the National Register of Historic Places for Libbey High School, then we were put on the register in September 2011.  

A recent venue

Chowders 'N Moor is located at 312 South Street and the Anthony Wayne Trail in Waterville, Ohio.  Monday's are Taco and Margarita Specials Nights, with both chicken and beef tacos (soft or hard shell) for 99 cents.  There are other specials, as well. 

The Sailing Club appreciates that you buy your soft drinks, beer, or mixed drinks from them.  If anyone has a short-distance yard game like "cornhole" feel free to bring it.


Sorry for the uncertainty of the venues.  With summer comes peak use at some of the places we use in the winter for meetings.  We hope to have the venues squared away a week or two before the meetings.

If anyone has old copies of the Crystal or Edelian that has information on materials that were lost or stolen could you scan it, and send us a copy (hopefully as a .pdf).  Surprisingly, copies of these then current documents were not archived by the school, and an important source for the history of Libbey has been lost.  For example, it might have been reported that Mr. Libbey's portrait was missing in the school's newspaper but we have no such information.  The portrait has been missing from the walls of Libbey High School since at least 1995.

 

Please help the Libbey Alumni Association Inc. and Libbey alumni, if you can. Currently, we meet to make all the heavy decisions about where  pages of inventory of Libbey memorials, portraits and trophies will end up.  Finding an honorable home is not easy..Remember, for example, the memorial to the 106 killed in WWII or the memorial to Congressional Medal of Honor awardee Lt. Robert Craig.

 

Call me (Sue Terrill, 419-531-3355 ) and I will update you. Your input as a class or an individual is valuable. Our struggles are far from over.


Remember to visit the Blog.  If there some past information that still needs to be kept it will likely be there.

Below is a request from Sue Terrill, a member of the Libbey Alumni:

Dear Libbey Alumni/History Detectives:

 

From information I have received from a public records request to Toledo Public Schools, the portrait of Edward Drummond Libbey may not have been hanging on the marble walls of the school since 1995.

 

I ask that if any alumni recalls where and when they saw the portrait, to report it to me. In addition, if you have any knowledge, photos from old Crystals, or yearbooks of your own that can help pinpoint its location at a certain place and time that would be helpful.

 

I am determined to discover what happened to Libbey High School's portrait of Edward Drummond Libbey.

 

In addition I would appreciate any historical summaries that you can provide to complete our school history. Have any old school newspapers, yearbooks, scrapbooks, Blade articles, photos, etc.?

 

I would like to speak to those with good recollections as well. I would also like help in contacting the photographers who in the past took the photos of our school and may have some that were unpublished.

 

Email bandore4u@gmail.com . Leave message at 419-531-3355.

 

Thank you.

Sue Terrill

Libbey High School, History Detective
