The Libbey House Foundation is sponsoring a lecture series throughout 2022 that will highlight the rich history that has made Toledo “The Glass City.” The lectures are part of a world-wide celebration of the International Year of Glass, as designated by the United Nations.

Barbara Floyd spoke on Michael Owens and the automatic bottle machine. She is the author of The Glass City: Toledo and the Industry That Made it.

The lecture was held at the former home of Edward Drummond Libbey.

Knowledge Stream is made possible by a generous gift provided by the Appold Family Charitable Fund.
