  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • The CRF Museum (203 E Main St Loudonville OH)

Paul Brown is considered the father of modern football. From his high school to professional career, Brown put his players' needs first to ensure they would be successful on and off the field. He believed a successful team was educated, supported, and held to high standards. In order to achieve this, Brown instituted classroom teaching techniques in the locker room, implemented the playbook and review of game film, assisted with the foundation of many support organizations, developed innovative play creation, invented various safety equipment, and drafted players he knew would contribute to a winning team. His contributions to the game of football are measured in his effective implementation of strategy and innovation and are still utilized today.

Bailey Yoder joined the Massillon Museum staff in April 2018 as the curator of football heritage for the Paul Brown Museum. She holds a BA in history and adolescent to young adult education from the University of Mount Union (2013) and an MA in history and applied history from Youngstown State University (2017). She oversees research and design of exhibitions in the Paul Brown gallery and manages the Paul Brown Research Library in Memory of Bob Shiring, which houses the extensive Paul Brown and Massillon Tigers archives. Yoder has coordinated and helped design the Paul Brown Museum and curated numerous exhibitions, as well as collaborated with outside institutions on multiple projects.
