Description

Before travel blogs, one of the ways travelers shared their experiences with friends and family was by keeping a hand-written diary or journal of their adventures. This exhibit focuses on one traveler from Willowick, Ohio who crossed the Atlantic in his 13.5 foot sailboat, Tinkerbelle, in 1965.

Robert Manry, a copy editor for the Plain Dealer, set out from Falmouth, Massachusetts on June 1, 1965. He kept a logbook of his solo journey to Falmouth, England and arrived on August 17, 1965. At the time, the Tinkerbelle was the smallest boat to cross the Atlantic.

Manry's book about his adventure, excerpts from his logbook, a video filmed and narrated by Manry and memorabilia celebrating his epic voyage will be on display in Cleveland State University's Michael Schwartz Library.

The exhibit is open during Library hours
