2Title:  David N. Meyers Papers     
 Creator:  Myers, David N. 
 Dates:  1932-2001 
 Abstract:  David N. Myers was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1900. He worked his way through high school and earned an accounting degree from Dyke College, a local business college, in 1922. He accepted a position in accounting with the Francis Byerlyte Corporation, and subsequently became president and owner of the company, later known as Consolidated Coatings Corporation. He married Inez Pink in 1929, and the couple raised two sons. Myers' primary philanthropic interest was aging and the elderly. He was instrumental in facilitating the move of the Jewish Orthodox Home for the Aged from the Glenville neighborhood to Beachwood, Ohio. He also assisted in the construction of R.H. Myers Apartments, an independent living facility for the elderly. He served as the President of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland from 1964 to 1969 and, along with his wife, established the David and Inez Myers Foundation. In 1995, Dyke college was renamed David N. Myers College in recognition of Myers' contributions to the school. The collection consists of certificates, correspondence, reports, interviews, invitations, minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, press releases, programs, and speech texts.
