In this latest installment of “The History of North Canton,” the city and the country celebrate major milestones heading into the new millennium. In the aftermath of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal, the country looks toward the 1976 bicentennial celebration in the hopes of boosting spirits. North Canton itself celebrates its sesquicentennial and the Hoover Company turns 75, ahead of a major corporate development.
Plus, we learn about the history of the Diebold company, which was setting up on Mayfair Road in the 1970s.
Special guest Michael Jacobsen, Senior Director of Corporate Communications for Diebold-Nixdorf
