The 1986 Western Reserve Studies Symposium "Authors and Artists on the Reserve" celebrated an anniversary. It was 200 years ago, September 14, 1786 when the state of Connecticut ceded the area that became part of the Northwest Territory. Connecticut retained responsibility for the use of the lands, hence, the designation "The Western Reserve."
Lake Erie Colleve at the eastern end of this area has a history that dates to1847 and the founding of the Willoughby Female Seminary, its predecessor. In 1856, the Lake Erie Female Seminary was chartered and opened in 1859. In 1898, it achieved college status but carried its past with it in its name -- Lake Erie College and Seminary until 1909 when it was known as Lake Erie College.

The Lake Erie College Press Western Reserve Studies: A Journal of Regional History and Culture with the support of the Ohio Humanities Council and the Harriet B. Storrs Fund publishes the proceedings of the Symposium "Authors and Artists On the Reserve" for which Gladys Haddad of Lake Erie College and David Anderson of Hiram College are co-editors.
