      Story topic this week…

      Hanging Out with Lee Harvey Oswald
      Joe Reardon relates the circumstances that led to his meeting and hanging out for an evening with Lee Harvey Oswald, hearing intriguing stories of his sojourn in the Soviet Union — why he went, what he did there, and his battle to return to the U.S., as well as his thoughts and feelings about society and politics at home vs. the USSR. This transpired four months before the JFK assassination. The talk will then focus on insights into what may have been Oswald’s real motivation and intention.
       
      Joe Reardon Bio

      Joseph P. Reardon grew up in Cambridge, Ohio. He graduated from Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL (BS chemistry) and American University in Washington, DC (MS & PhD physical chemistry). Joe and his wife Janelle relocated to the Cleveland area (Fairview Park) in 1981. He has been a high school science teacher, research chemist, and industrial R&D manager specializing in high-temperature composite materials. Joe is a member of the Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society, Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland, the Northeast Ohio Sierra Club, the Fairview Park Historical Society, the Fairview Park Garden Club, and the American Ceramics Society, as well as a member of the Board of Directors of the Ohio Chapter of the American Chestnut Foundation since 2006.

       
      The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
