Program Announcement: The Tornado of 1924 (Brown-Bag Lunch Program)


Bring your lunch and join us in the Library Program Room (Terrace Level) as we explore topics in local history. The first session of the Summer Brown Bag Lunch Series will be held on Wednesday, June 20, from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in the Library Program Room (Terrace Level).

The topic will be One Sunday Afternoon: The Story of the 1924 Lorain/Sandusky, Ohio Tornado. Jennifer Wertz, the business partner of the late Berlin Heights filmmaker Tom Koba of Koba and Company will screen this movie. (Note: The film is 72 minutes in length, so this session will run over one hour.)

I am from Columbus area - is there a way to see a copy of the 1924 Tornado film? Possible to get a copy? My great-great grandfather was the foreman at the Kilbourne Cooperage which was destroyed in 1924. Here are the photos I have of that tornado:

You might want to try your local public library first -- they might be able to borrow a copy via interlibrary loan. If you want to buy a copy, perhaps your local bookstore or video store can order one for you. Or, you can contact Koba & Company, 11918 Berlin Rd., Berlin Heights, OH 44814.

BTW, I liked your website.
