Ellis Persing

Founded by Ellis Persing, the Cleveland Natural Science Club was composed primarily of teachers during its early years. As an advantage of their chosen occupation, many club members were free to travel during the summer months. The travel section of the club regularly planned trips to national parks and places of scientific interest. Ellis Persing often led these excursions, as well as field trips throughout the United States with his college students. The rocks collected by members on their trips were included in the masonry of the upstairs fireplace at Look About Lodge.
