Akron Beacon Journal Photographs from Summit Memory

“Highlights from the Akron Beacon Journal Photograph Collection” features large reproductions of select images from the Akron Beacon Journal Photograph Collection on Summit Memory. In 2014, Special Collections embarked on a project to digitize hand-selected images from the many thousands of photographs held in the archives of the Akron Beacon Journal. To date, over 5,000

images have been digitized and made available on Summit Memory. When complete, this collection will include over 15,000 photographs that tell the stories of the people, places and events in Summit County history. The “Highlights” display will run through January 2018.
