Meet author Mike Olszewski as we continue our exciting Meet the Author Series in 2015. Remember when TV was just three channels and the biggest celebrities in Cleveland were an outrageous movie host named Ghoulardi, a gentle elf named Barnaby, and a tough-as-nails newswoman named Dorothy Fuldheim? These pioneering entertainers invented television programming before our very eyes while we watched from our living rooms.
His collection of star memorabilia began over thirty-three years ago as Stow jeweler Richard John purchased his first celebrity gown—a Dorothy Lamour cocktail dress. Today his private collection contains over 900 pieces. Rarely on public display, Richard John’s presentation is literally the chance of a lifetime to see authentic Hollywood treasures worn by some of our most glamorous stars.
