The life of Clara Lederer is a mystery to us. In 1954 she wrote the very important work Their Paths are Peace: The Story of Cleveland’s Cultural Gardens. We know nothing else about her. She might have been born around 1906/1907. We have no bio, photo, or record that she wrote any other books. As the copyright to book her wasn’t renewed the work fell into the public domain and this 60th anniversary edition presents the original content (with minor corrections) in a fresh layout.
