4Title:  Diana Tittle Mount Sinai Medical Center Research Papers     
 Creator:  Tittle, Diana 
 Dates:  1891-2015 
 Abstract:  Mount Sinai Hospital (1903-2000) had its origins in the Young Ladies Hebrew Association for the Care of the Needy Sick, created in 1892 by nine young women in Cleveland, Ohio. The hospital opened in 1903. In 1996, the nonprofit hospital was sold to a for-profit company, Primary Health Systems (PHS). In March 1999, PHS filed for bankruptcy, and in February 2000, Mount Sinai Hospital closed. The closure of Mount Sinai was a significant development in the history of medicine in the Cleveland area and in the history of the Jewish community. Diana Tittle, author of Welcome to Heights High: The Crippling Politics of Restructuring America's Public Schools and other titles, began research on a book documenting the closure of Mt. Sinai in 2004. Amid concerns that the ongoing consolidation of the health care delivery system and the ongoing national health care debate would overshadow her publication, Tittle reached the decision to pursue an alternative use for her research other than publication. This collection preserves her research in its entirety, including primary source materials she collected and extensive notes from numerous oral history interviews. The collection consists of articles, booklets, brochures, correspondence, drafts, indexes, memoranda, newsletters, newspaper clippings, notes, overviews of specific subjects, reports, a scrapbook, summaries, texts of unpublished material, and other documents related to the donor's work on the history of Mt. Sinai Medical Center.

20Title:  Workmen's Circle Records, Series IV     
 Creator:  Gift of Jack Greminger 
 Dates:  1927-2017 
 Abstract:  The Workmen's Circle, or Arbeiter Ring, is a secular Jewish fraternal organization founded to build a better world, foster cultural Jewishness, and offer friendships. Early on, the Circle was viewed as an organization of labor unionists, including Socialists, although there was no official connection. Members demonstrated for social security, unemployment compensation, child labor laws, workmen's compensation, and health security, and supported candidates who were in favor of these issues. The group also provided lectures, poetry readings, plays, shows, and concerts in Yiddish. Camp Vladek (called the Workmen's Circle Camp) in Rock Creek, Ohio was a summer resort for adults and a children's camp from 1950-1963, when it was sold and the proceeds were used to build a Workmen's Circle Educational Center at 1980 Green Road in 1964. The I. L. Peretz Workmen's Circle School first opened in 1918 and became a center for adult Yiddish classes and Yiddish cultural programming. Since the Holocaust, the Circle's emphasis has shifted to the preservation, promotion, and perpetuation of Yiddish language and culture. In 1995 there were 3 branches in Cleveland and 1 in Akron; membership totaled approximately 1,200. The Workmen's Circle Records, Series IV collection consists of agreements, applications, awards, booklets, budgets, bylaws, correspondence, a mortgage deed and plot plan for Camp Vladek, employee manual and forms, flyers, board meetings and minutes, music sheets, newsletters, newspaper clippings, a photograph, a poster, holiday programs, a school calendar, a sketch, a songbook, a syllabus, and a Yiddish textbook.
