The Hough Riots of 1966
by Marc E. Lackritz
(requires the free Adobe Acrobat TM Reader software)

During the night of July 18, 1966, racial turmoil in Cleveland's Hough neighborhood resulted in one of the most serious outbreaks of civil disorder in the city's history. A week later, when the National Guard had finally restored order, four people were dead, dozens were injured, hundreds of fires had been reported, and millions of dollars of property had been destroyed.

This thesis was presented to Princeton University only two years after the riots.

This edition contains the complete text as found in the Regional Church Planning Office's 1968 edition of his original senior thesis for Princeton that same year.

The ebook is hosted by the Cleveland State University Library and is presented here with the permission and active participation of the author, who retains all intellectual property rights to the work. We thank him for his help and generosity.
