Michael Rotman is CH Historical Society's first director
The Cleveland Heights Historical Society (CHHS) has appointed Michael Rotman as its new executive director. A resident of the city’s Cedar Fairmount neighborhood, Rotman previously worked at the Center for Public History and Digital Humanities at Cleveland State University, where he developed content for the Cleveland Historical mobile app and collaborated with teachers to use technology to integrate the region’s history into classroom curricula.
Rotman plans to further the CHHS mission of preserving and promoting the diverse history of Cleveland Heights by enhancing its website (www.chhistory.org) to showcase the society’s resources and collections for audiences from around the world, through ongoing collaborations with community members and organizations to stage periodic local history presentations; and through publication of the quarterly CHHS newsletter.
