Louise Carpenter was born in Pennsylvania and moved to Cleveland in 1939 to study voice and music at Case College. When she first moved to the area she lived in a women's boarding house on 114th Street and Mayfield. She remembers many of the places she used to go to in the 105th Street area including the Elysium, a variety of restaurants, the Cleveland Orchestra and the 105th Street Market. She notes where different Case College and Western Reserve buildings used to be and where they are located now including fraternity houses. Most of her life was spent in the University Circle Area and she is amazed at how much the area has grown since first coming to Cleveland.
