Abstract: Robert Strasmyer (1916-1995) was an architect in Cleveland, Ohio, who had an avid interest in the history of dance halls and bands in Cleveland. He conducted extensive research on the history of performances of nationally known orchestras at local dance halls such as Luna Park, Euclid Beach Park, the Trianon, and Cedar Point. Strasmyer gave lectures and presentations based on his research, and hosted his own radio program entitled "Kaleidoscope U.S.A." The collection consists of admission tickets, advertisements, business cards, correspondence, directories, a license, lists, menus, newspaper clippings, an ordinance, newsletters, notes, research papers, a schedule, and sheet music.
