On May 10 and 11, 1985 Lake Erie College and the Lake County Historical Society with the support of the Ohio Humanities Council sponsored "Western Reserve Studies: A Symposium on Regional History and Culture."
The Lake Erie College Press inaugurates its Western Reserve Studies: A journal of Regional History and Culture with the publication of the Symposium proceedings made possible in part by the Ohio Humanities Council.

Project directors Gladys Haddad of Lake Erie College and Eric Cardinal of the Lake County Historical Society served as editors of this issue. The focus upon the distinctive aspects of Ohio's Western Reserve as revealed in the proceedings included

factors that defined the area prior to the initial definition of Connecticut's "Reserve" in the West
bonds that unified and defined the Western Reserve in the 19th century
opportunities for investigation of "nearby" history within the Western Reserve
interpretation of material culture within the region
understanding the area's unique character for community planning
