For local sources, go to the ultimate source: Richardson

By Ben L. Kaufman
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Edgar M. Richardson, a retired educator and volunteer, has updated his Greater Cincinnati International Sourcebook and put together still another, related guidebook.

        The third edition of the sourcebook identifies 165 national/ethnic/cultural/religious communities and their publications, radio programs, performing arts and festivals, holidays and related topics.

        The new booklet, Pursuit of Improved Human Relations,lists more than 70 organizations, from Agape Fellowship to Woman's City Club.

        Dr. Richardson compiles both directories for the International Family Resource Center (Travelers Aid International of Greater Cincinnati) at 707 Race St., Downtown.

        He said copies are to be available at the International Family Resource Center and Cincinnati Human Relations Commission, City Hall.

        As with the sourcebook, the new guide is a work in progress and the Mount Lookout resident continues to seek further entries.

        After the original version of Pursuit of Improved Human Relations went to press, Dr. Richardson learned that he'd omitted the sponsoring family resource center and Inter-Ethnic Council.

        “I was too close to them and modesty prevented me” from listing them, he said.

        In addition to his sourcebook and the guide, Dr. Richardson coordinates the family resource center's Multicultural Information Bureau (721-7660).
