Marilyn B. Bialosky interview, 21 March 2014


Marilyn B. Bialosky, Shaker Heights native, describes her well traveled life. She recalls what it was like growing up during the Great Depression and World War 2. She met her husband at Forest Hills Park, and at 16 years old she knew she was going to marry him. After 65 years of marriage, her feelings for him are still strong. Living in Shaker Heights around Shaker Square, Bialosky describes what it was like growing up with anti-semitism, and then what it was like teaching at Ludlow during integration. She also mentions her involvement with the League of Women voters and what she remembers of the freeways that were supposed to go through the Shaker Lakes. She discusses the Hough Riots and concludes by remembering her first date with her husband Jack, a memorable date indeed.
