M1917 6-ton Tank
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

I do not know of an Ohio collection. I do know for a fact, the McClain merged with Knights and it took YEARS for them to get permission from the Feds to move the M1 Abrams.

I will do some searching however.

Look back in the early versions of Neil's AFV Register. I'll dig up one of my archive copies when I get a chance but it will be a couple weeks

Hubbard Ohio was the location. From Registery V2.3 (19 December 2006):

World War II Vehicle Museum and Learning Center
5959 W Liberty St
Hubbard Ohio

Harry Vetch? or something like that, He deserves to be remembered. He died in December (can't remember the year) while visiting New York.

(okay I lied about it taking a couple weeks. I found a copy in a folder of a folder in the corner of my desktop)

the collection in ohio was owned by Henry Venetta, nice man, died of a heart attack. Reed bought the collection. Joe Mclain merged with Reed Knights collection and Joe runs the entire collection for Reed. i am checking to see where Fred Ropkeys 1917 went.
