Laura Mae Corrigan – The Most Fascinating Woman to Live on Millionaire’s Row
Cleveland storyteller Dan Ruminski discusses the most fascinating and infamous woman to live on Millionaires’ Row, Laura Mae Corrigan. She married into the Corrigan-McKinney Steel Co. fortune in 1917, but was never really accepted into Cleveland society. She decided to spend much of her time in Europe and became the premier hostess throughout Europe for over 30 years. Through a sequence of events, Dan Ruminski will explain how she wound up with the entire family fortune.
Dan Ruminski is one of Cleveland’s most prominent story tellers, and his vibrant enthusiasm and knowledge of the city of Cleveland has made him a most sought after speaker. From local historical societies to well-known events, his wealth of Cleveland knowledge educates audiences while captivating their interest.
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.
