Violet Spevack and 50 Years of the Cavalcade Column Violet Spevack first started writing for the Cleveland Jewish news in March of 1965, shortly after its launch. At 97, she’s still typing away at her typewriter (seriously) about the Cleveland Jewish community. Energetic and witty, Spevack is described not so much as someone who covers parties but rather the life of every party. This year Vi was inducted into the Cleveland Press Club Hall of Fame.
