It was formed by brothers Frank and William Fageol when they left the Fageol Motor Company (Fageol) in 1927. They established the company in Kent to manufacture and sell buses with a new concept design. The body structure of this new bus was unique in that the body also became the frame and two engines – "twin" engines –were used to allow for larger passenger loads. This concept was patented by William B. Fageol. '''Dix Stadium''' is a stadium in Kent, Ohio, United States. It is primarily used for American football, and is the home field of the Kent State Golden Flashes football team. It lies at the far eastern end of the KSU campus along Summit Street, just east of State Route 261 (Ohio State Route 261) and is the center piece of what has become an athletic complex. From 1997-2005, the field hockey team also played its games at the stadium until a new field hockey stadium was constructed behind Dix Stadium. The KSU Softball, Women's Soccer, Field Hockey, and Indoor Track teams all play their home matches in facilities around Dix Stadium. The stadium also hosts the occasional high school football game and served as the host of the 2001 NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship. It opened on September 13, 1969 with a win against in-state rival Dayton (University of Dayton). It was named in honor of Robert C.

Their music and stage show mingle kitsch science fiction themes, deadpan surrealist humor (Surreal humour), and mordantly satirical (satire) social commentary.

poetry published

arrived in Kent, Ohio, where he worked as a chain maker, professional boxer, and tree surgeon. He also began to write, mostly poetry published in the local newspapers. He moved to Hollywood in 1912, when he began writing in earnest. His literary career took two distinct paths. He became one of the first reporters to cover Hollywood. As a free-lancer he was not constrained by the studios and wrote about Hollywood celebrities (including Charlie Chaplin, for whom he had worked) in ways that they did not always find agreeable. For these pieces, rather tame by current standards, he became known as the most-hated man in Hollywood—a title he relished. Less lucrative but closer to his heart were the books he wrote about his life on the road and the American underclass. He also wrote an affectionate memoir of his childhood with his extended Irish family, as well as novels on prostitution, boxing, Hollywood, and a travel book. While some of the more graphic books ran afoul of the censors E.g. "Tully Book 'Indecent' " (''Ladies in the Parlor''), ''New York Times'', August 17, 1935. , they also garnered both commercial success and critical acclaim from, among others, H.L. Mencken, George Jean Nathan, and Rupert Hughes, who wrote that Tully "has fathered the school of hard-boiled writing so zealously cultivated by Ernest Hemingway and lesser luminaries." Family Tully married '''Florence May Bushnell''' on October 14, 1910 in Kent, Ohio. They had two children together: '''T. Alton Tully''', born August 3, 1911 in Kent and daughter '''Trilby Jean Tully''' born November 13, 1918 in California. Tully later had two additional marriages, to a woman named '''Marna''', '''Margaret Rider Myers''' in 1925, and finally to '''Myrtle Zwetow''' on June 28, 1933 in Ventura, California. History LXD, Incorporated was founded as '''ILIXCO''' ('''I'''nternational '''Li'''quid '''X'''tal '''Co'''mpany) by James Fergason in 1968 in Kent, Ohio and was the first manufacturer of the twisted nematic LCD. ILIXCO became cash strapped while trying to break into the display market with watch and large instrument displays, and it was purchased by then customer DICKEY-john Corp in 1974. John Lamphier III, owner of DICKEY-john Corp, renamed the company '''Liquid Xtal Displays Inc.''' and later sold the company to the Electronic Components Division of General Electric in September 1979.

Kent, Ohio

'''Kent''' is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and the largest city in Portage County (Portage County, Ohio). It is located along the Cuyahoga River in Northeast Ohio on the western edge of the county. The population was 28,904 in the 2010 Census (2010 United States Census) and 32,345 in the 2013 estimate. The city is counted as part of the Akron Metropolitan Statistical Area (Akron, OH Metropolitan Statistical Area) and the larger Cleveland–Akron–Canton Combined Statistical Area (Northeast Ohio).

Part of the Connecticut Western Reserve, Kent was settled in 1805 and was known for many years as '''Franklin Mills'''. Settlers were attracted to the area due to its location along the Cuyahoga River as a place for water-powered mills. Later development came in the 1830s and 1840s as a result of the village's position along the route of the Pennsylvania and Ohio Canal. Leading up to the American Civil War, Franklin Mills was noted for its activity in the Underground Railroad. With the decline of the canal and the emergence of the railroad, the village became the home of the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad maintenance shops through the influence of Marvin Kent. In 1864 the village was renamed Kent in honor of and in gratitude for Marvin Kent's efforts. Today Kent is a college town best known as the home of the main campus of Kent State University, founded in 1910, and as the site of the 1970 Kent State shootings.

Historically a manufacturing center, education is the city's largest economic sector with Kent State University the city's, and one of the region's, largest employers. The Kent City School District and the Kent Free Library provide additional education opportunities and resources. Many of Kent's demographic elements are influenced by the presence of the university, particularly the median age, median income, and those living below the poverty level. The city is governed by a council-manager system (council-manager government) with a city manager, a nine-member city council, and a mayor. Kent has nearly 20 parks and preserves and hosts a number of annual festivals including ones related to Earth Day, folk music, and the U.S. Independence Day (Independence Day (United States)). In addition to the Kent State athletic teams (Kent State Golden Flashes), the city also hosts a number of amateur and local sporting events at various times during the year. Kent is part of the Cleveland-Akron media market and is the city of license for three local radio stations and three television stations and includes the regional affiliates for National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). Although most residents commute to work in private vehicles, alternate transportation includes a public bus service (Portage Area Regional Transportation Authority) and hike-and-bike trails. As the home of the Davey Tree Expert Company, Kent is known as "The Tree City" while residents are referred to as "Kentites". The city has produced a number of notable individuals, particularly in politics, athletics, and the entertainment industry.
