On Thursday, November 10th, the Canfield Historical Society will host a lecture and presentation by Dr. Raymond Duffett, "Canfield High School Athletic Hall of Fame". Duffett, a respected area orthopedic surgeon, was a three-sport athlete for Canfield High School. In football, he earned three letters and was a three-year starter at quarterback. He was a three-year letter-winner in baseball and a three-year starter in basketball. He earned a scholarship to V.M.I., quarterbacking the Keydets from 1975-78. After his junior year he was accepted into the University of Cincinnati’s College of Medicine, earning his Medical degree in 1982. An adjunct faculty member at Youngstown State University, he has served as the school’s team physician since 1989.
The Canfield High School Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes those who have excelled in one or more sports, and distinguished themselves with their athletic endeavors while a student at Canfield High School. The lecture will cover 9 decades of Canfield High School's most noted athletes and coaches. The lecture will be presented in the large meeting room at the Canfield library, across the street from the Canfield Historical Society Bond House. Stop by the Bond House prior to the lecture 5pm to 5:40pm, 44 W. Main Street, for a snack and socializing prior to the lecture. At the Bond house the Society's collection of Canfield High School sports memorabilia will be on special display. After enjoying the display and refreshments, head across the street to the library, the lecture starts at the library at 6pm. This lecture is free and open to the public, regardless of membership

This landmark on the Green in Canfield has been preserved in the same condition as when Ralph Fowler closed the door for the last time. Mr. Fowler donated the building and contents to the Society and we have worked to be good stewards of the property. Tours are available by appointment.
