Dr. Edward Jay Pershey received his doctorate in the History of Technology from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland in 1982. For the past 20 years, he has been a Project Manager at the Western Reserve Historical Society where he has developed dozens of their exhibits including many of the exhibits on the history of aviation in Cleveland.

Tom Piraino recently retired from Cleveland based Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies. He has long studied the history of aviation and the important role Cleveland played in the early development of airplanes.

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.
