Associated Grocery Manufacturers' Representatives of Youngstown Scrapbook

MSS 0125 -- (1951-1989) -- (1 vol)


Scope & Content

The 19 5/8 x 25 inch scrapbook includes photographs, newspapers clippings, programs, and directories documenting the Associated Grocery Manufacturers' Representatives of Youngstown from the time of the group's founding in 1951. The history of the organization during these years is one that parallels the decline of the neighborhood grocery stores and the rise of the supermarkets. Many of the members of this organization were small grocers and their suppliers. The organization dwindled with the neighborhood grocers. Much of the material deals with the organization's charitable work, especially with mentally and physically handicapped children.

Provenance

The scrapbook was acquired from Phyllis Witherow as a representative of the group in November 1995. Randall Gooden received the scrapbook on behalf of Ohio Historical Society on November 9, 1995 and processed it for archival use. The Ohio Historical Society owns the property rights to the scrapbook. It has received the copyrights to non-published items in the book and dedicated them to the public, but the copyrights to published material remains with the publisher. Copying of items may be done for incidental and academic use. The collection is open under the rules and regulations of Ohio Historical Society and the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor's Archives-Library. Researchers are requested to cite the collection name and both the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor and Ohio Historical Society when referring to this material in notes and bibliographies.
