The Lake Erie West Hall of Fame for the performing arts
created by Eddie Boggs
©1998
1998 Hall Of Fame Inductees
                                     Margaret "Rusty" Monroe
                                                                      (jazz promoter, entepeneur)

   Honored for her contribution to promoting jazz music in the Lake Erie West area. Her club not only featured some of the
area's best jazz musicians, but also some of the world's most recognizable musicians.  For someone who did not play a
musical instrument, Rusty Monroe did more to promote live music in the Toledo area than anyone else involved in the
music industry.
The prestigious Lake Erie West Hall of Fame for the performing arts officially opened on March 30, 1998 at the
SeaGate Centre in downtown Toledo, Ohio. The hall was established to recognize and honor those individuals born or
raised in Northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan, who, through their endeavors in the performing arts, have gained
regional, national or international recognition. Inductees include actors, directors, producers, writers, singers,
songwriters, musicians, dancers, and others deemed worthy of this honor.

 Artists are inducted into the Hall of Fame on an annual or bi-annual basis. To read complete bios, you are encouraged
to visit the site in the Lucas County Convention Center, located on Summit Street, in downtown Toledo. For inquiries
about the Hall Of Fame, please contact Eddie Boggs at eddie.boggs@bex.net.
