For almost two centuries, the historic Tremont neighborhood has rested on a bluff overlooking Cleveland's industrial valley. The sleepy farming community was transformed in 1867, when Cleveland annexed it. Factories attracted thousands of emigrants from Europe, and industrialization gave rise to a class of wealthy businessmen. After the city prospered as a manufacturing center during World War II, deindustrialization and suburbanization fueled a huge population loss, and the neighborhood declined as highways cut through. The 1980s marked the beginning of the rebirth of the cultural treasure Tremont became. Author W. Dennis Keating chronicles the challenges and triumphs of this diverse and vibrant community.

About the Author

Born in Powell, Wyoming, Linda F. Robertson's memoir weaves together the story of Wyoming's ranch life provided by parents Dot and Lee Brunk and the global challenges as a public-school administrator and university director in Ohio. Husband Darrell Robertson's military and civilian careers provided opportunities to explore the world. He also served as her partner in the study of effective leadership. Daughter Michelle Settecase's work with EY's Women Fast Forward initiative worldwide provided motivation for Robertson to examine her own career path reflectively.


However, enjoying life's great adventure and sharing it with others is central to Dr. Robertson's real passion. She framed this note card shared by her sister, Nancy Lewis (Nancy had received it from friends in New Zealand). Voltaire's quote and this photo from that card says it all.
