Synopsis: From inside DJ flap: "Every day for 20 years Cleveland Press society editor Marjorie Alge clipped her stories and pasted them into a scrapbook. Into a box under he desk...went duplicates of pictures of the people and activities that she covered...The scrapbooks eventually grew to some 30 in number, and the photographs overflowed several large boxes. When Marge retired in February 1981, shortly before the Press closed, she took this meticulous record of the estimated 3000 benefits and events that she had attended since becoming society editor in June 1959 to her home for safekeeping...Clevelanders Cynthia White Halle and Mebby Klein Brown wanted to make the material available to the public. They spearheaded the publications of this book, which teams excerpts of Marge Alge's lively reportage and commentary on the city's movers and shakers during the 1960s and 1970s with select photographs, primarily by Frank Reed. Notable for its breadth and verve, Marge's and Frank's collected work constitutes a sort of Time-Life photohistory of the glamour, fun and excitement of Cleveland's golden era of volunteerism. It celebrates some of the 'people, places and flings' that commanded...Alge's attention and respect during the period roughly between the ascendance of John F. Kennedy to the national scene and the election of George V. Voinovich as Cleveland's mayor. As this volume makes splendidly clear, this was a 'spectacular time' -- when Clevelanders dug into their pockets, put on party clothes and produced one glittering gala after another, all for the love of their community and its charitable causes -- and its likes may never be seen again. All the more reason to be thankful that journalists as dedicated and talented as Marge Alge and Frank Reed were there to capture it."
