DHBO has already become much more than just a place to research books and booklets on Dayton’s great history. With your help we hope to expand even more!
What a wonderful year it’s been! When we asked for contributions last year we promised that they would be put to good use. And we feel we’ve more than kept that promise! DHBO has grown enormously, adding a number of features to the site including:
100+ Roz Young articles
600+ pages of articles written by Charles F. Sullivan, who was born in Dayton in 1866
The “Our Own Hall of Fame” series from the 1960s on important people from the area
1,160+ photographs of Dayton from 1900 to the present, many of which are from the 1950s
A search engine that includes DHBO’s blogs and photographs
A number of historical videos that can be watched online
All this, on top of maintaining the 700+ books, booklets and articles online; the now famous DAYTON MEMORIES blog; videos… all while staying up with the latest technology to make sure the 2.6 million+ views DHBO received over the past year could continue without interruption.
What does 2012-2013 hold for DHBO?
During the following year DHBO will add:
More rare books
More historical videos
Plus - a special section to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Great Flood of 1913, including pictures and 60+ articles, books, booklets and personal stories - all availble without charge!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
