OBERLIN'S RESPONSE TO WWI

By April 1917, when the United States entered World War I, the people of Oberlin had long worried about the effects of growing global turmoil.  Town and college alike had aided relief efforts to the Allied Powers since the war’s beginning in 1914, and when duty called, they did not hesitate to send their finest young men and women to the battlefront. This illustrated presentation traces the experiences of Oberlinians who went to war, examines how questions of race and gender influenced their military service, describes how those who stayed at home supported the continuing war effort, and much more.

CONVERSATION ABOUT HOUSING NEEDS

Oberlin is a diverse community that continues to eveolve as our life situations change over time.  Housing options also need to eveolve and adapt to the challenges of our aging population and climate change.  The City of Oberlin and Oberlin College have committed to purchasing energy from renewable resources and promoting energy conservation in operations and services over the past five years.  These efforts have proven to be sound investments for the future. 

How can we promote similar strategies for our neighborhoods that will enhance our diversity of housing options as well as strengthen investment in our neighborhoods?

Come share your ideas and learn about new housing solutions that have proven successful in other communities.

While many people know that the Wright Brothers were from Dayton, Ohio and made their famous first flights at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, fewer know they had strong ties to Oberlin as well.  Professor Craig traces Wilbur and Orville’s Oberlin connections, including the key role of the "Wright Sister," Katharine, who graduated from Oberlin College and later served as a College Trustee.

Inspired by the Scopes “Monkey Trial” of 1925, this explosively gripping play follows the events surrounding a young high-school teacher who is arrested for teaching Darwin’s theory of evolution. One of the finest court-room dramas ever written (by two local authors, from Cleveland and Elyria), this American theater classic premiered in 1955 at the height of the McCarthy era but its central theme, the right to think, still resonates today.

Oberlin Women's History Walk

"One Step More": Oberlin Women's Outdoor  History Walk

In 1834, John J. Shipherd pledged Oberlin’s commitment to “the elevation of female character” through education. Little did he know, there was dynamite in that promise, and women carried the matches.

Hear stories of powerful Oberlin women including Lucy Stone, Marianne Parker Dascomb, Adelia Field Johnston, Mary Church Terrell, and Lucy Stanton Day, and learn how they used John J. Shipherd’s promise to shape what it meant to be a woman in Oberlin and in the United States.

Make your reservation on-line or call the Oberlin Heritage Center at 440-774-1700.

The Korean War: How it Changed Our World

Presenter: Jiyul Kim, Colonel (retired), U.S. Army & Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Oberlin College

In this illustrated presentation sponsored by the Oberlin Heritage Center, Jiyul Kim discusses the Korean War and its long-term impact on today’s world and likely into the future. From the war’s origins in the rise of competing visions of Korean nationalism in the wake of World War I, to Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonialism by the U.S. and the USSR at the end of World War II, to the “war without end” that fundamentally affected the course of the Cold War, this talk will consider the role of the Korean War in creating today’s geostrategic landscape and the unprecedented centrality of American power. This is also the story of how a war overturned an enduring principle of the American republic that had rejected military power as the foundation of its purpose and values.
