Cowan Pottery Museum

Rocky River Public Library 14 page booklet with marks and a collection of b&w photos. price tag residue front cover. R. Guy Cowan was born and raised in East Liverpool in southern Ohio, an area noted for its fine pottery since the late 1800's. For generations the Cowan family had made their living as potters and Lewis Cowan, Cuy's father, taught Kis son the trade. When Guy Cowan started attending classes at the New York State School of Ceramics at Alfred, he took with him a working and practical knowledge based on experience. At the school, under the direction of Charles F. Binns, Cowan completed a course in ceramic engineering Fifty years ago the laying of the cornerstone of the Rocky River Public Library took place. With a tradition of fine public service founded in the belief that the public is served by preserving the past, this library is celebrating that event by establishing the Cowan Pottery Museum. Opened on February 26, 1978, the museum was made a reality through the initiative of Library Director George W. Scherma and the cooperation and support of the Board of Trustees. Mary Frances Freedman and Sharen Leonard of the library staff have acted as the curators and researchers in preparing this collection and brochure for the public's enjoyment and information. May these combined efforts serve to start us on our way towards another fifty years of excellent publie service as well as preserve a significant part of Rocky River's heritage.
