    Besides LeBron James, I believe Goodrich and Firestone as well as the Stan Hewyt Hall owner (might have been Stan!) were from Akron. If you have time, see if Akron has an Historical Society because they could help alot.

    Apart from the people previously mentioned ...

    The rock group Devo

    Chrissy Hynde of The Pretenders ... she actually used the name of a suburb of Akron (Cuyahoga Falls) in one of her songs.

    Thomas Edison's wife Mina was from Akron. As a matter of fact, they got married in Akron, in this house:

    I know that little fact because that house has been divided into apartments, and I lived on the 3rd floor there about 20 years ago. (the window right behind the flag in the top picture was my bedroom window)
