Carl Stokes and Ralph Locher at Cleveland City Club 7/9/1971

From CSU Special Collections

Incredible audio recording from the last City Club Forum at their 712 Short Vincent Home:  July 9, 1971

First 20:40 minutes is Ralph Locher asking strongly for a unified Cuyahoga County government and then the final 50+ minutes is Carl Stokes, a terrific speaker, letting it all out, after having announced that he would not run for a third term

The tape is here
