1. Cleveland's men of the law were some of the best sources.

    Few print reporters have known Cleveland as well or for as long as Doris O'Donnell Beaufait. Daughter of a ward leader, niece of a sheriff and wife of another newspaper legend, Doris beat the pavement and reported the daylights out of a city on the make and on the move. She competed in the clubby world of men & sports, but still donned society-white gloves. Never afraid of a press stunt, Doris also breached the Iron Curtain, prowled Cleveland's underworld and went in search of the gun that killed Robert Kennedy.

    On the heels of her candid memoir, Front Page Girl (Kent State University Press, 2006), comes a series called Doris O'Donnell's Cleveland. Interviews with Doris' friends, colleagues & collaborators, both then and now, lend color and corroboration to this witness to Cleveland history -- recollections of a time gone by, but as vivid as a stiff breeze off the lake.
