Brady, former press secretary to President Reagan, who passed away this week. The collection includes speeches, articles, correspondence, and photographs of Brady during his tenure as vice chair of the National Organization on Disability.

Interested in local history? Already using Instagram? “Local History through the Public Eye” on the Toledo’s Attic site (www.toledosattic.org) is an experiment in crowd-curation of local history through the eyes of Instagram enthusiasts with respect for the region’s history. Images of historical buildings and sites of events in Toledo and Northwest Ohio history are invited. This includes buildings, historical markers, parks, and social and business establishments with historical significance. We ask that participants add the #toledosattic hash tag along with some identification, and if possible geographical location to their photos and it hould appear in this gallery. A small gallery has already formed on http://toledosattic.org/index.php/socialmedia/instageogal.
Look for @toledoattic on Instagram. Thank you!
