4Title:  Van Sweringen Company Photographs     
 Creator:  Van Sweingen Company 
 Dates:  1910-1930 
 Abstract:  The Van Sweringen Company (f. 1905) was a joint venture in Cleveland, Ohio, of brothers M. J. and O. P. Van Sweringen. The company's focus was primarily land development, as well as investments in the railroad industry. The company developed land that had been part of the North Union Shaker Community in the nineteenth century, creating Shaker Village, which eventually became Shaker Heights, Ohio. The Van Sweringens were the driving force in the construction of Cleveland's Terminal Tower building and Union Station. They developed the rapid transit line that connects much of the greater Cleveland area to downtown for ease of access for Shaker Village residents to travel from their homes to downtown. Shaker Heights was one of the very few planned suburbs of its time. There were strict building and construction guidelines, and the land was not developed on a grid, but with winding roads and other sophisticated flourishes that made it an appealing place of residence, especially those who owned automobiles. The Van Sweringens started by developing transportation lines throughout Shaker and what is now Cleveland Heights before extending their reach to downtown. They bought 51% interest in a 523 mile stretch of railroad track from the New York Central Railroad in 1915. From this point on, they extended their reach in the railroad industry and continued to invest in other companies, eventually controlling 30,000 miles of track. After they had successfully taken control of rights to build track through downtown Cleveland, they then began construction on Union Station and Terminal Tower. The Tower was originally intended as a new space for offices and businesses. Before the Depression, the value of the brothers' holdings was estimated to be $3 billion. After the Depression, the value plummeted drastically. M. J. died in 1934, and O. P. never quite recovered from the loss. He died just two years later. The collection consists of a drawing, a scrapbook, and photographic prints of varying sizes. All together, the collection consists of approximately 268 photographs.

5Title:  Halle Bros. Co. Photographs     
 Creator:  Halle Bros. Co. 
 Dates:  1893-1975 
 Abstract:  The Halle Brothers Company (1891-1982), a department store known for high quality merchandise and superior service, began on February 7, 1891 as a small hat and fur shop operated by brothers Samuel H. (1868-1954) and Salmon P. Halle (1866-1949). It was located at 221 Superior Street near Public Square in Cleveland, Ohio. They purchased the business from Captain T. S. Paddock. In 1893 the business was moved to Euclid Avenue and East 4th Street due to a need for more space. It was also around this time that women's ready to wear clothing began to be carried by the store. In 1902 the company was incorporated, changing its name from Halle Brothers to The Halle Bros. Co. The store continued to grow, adding both space and departments. A new building was constructed at Euclid and East 12th Street where the company moved in 1910. An addition was opened in 1914 allowing for the addition of new departments including furniture, toys, and sporting goods. In 1921 Salmon P. Halle resigned as president to devote himself to philanthropic work and other private interests. Samuel Halle then became president. By 1927 a new building, the Huron-Prospect store was opened in the Playhouse Square district. Branch stores were opened in Erie, Pennsylvania, in 1929 and Canton, Ohio, in 1930. Although losses did occur during the Depression, business bounced back after World War II allowing Halle Bros. Co. to open suburban branches, beginning with a Shaker Square store in 1948. Walter Halle, son of Samuel, became president in 1946 and Samuel moved to the position of chairman of the board. There was also expansion to their main downtown Euclid Avenue store which was completed in 1949. Problems began to arise in the 1960s stemming from their over-expanded downtown store and sales competition from stores such as the Higbee Co. and May Co. In 1970 Halle Bros. Co. was merged with Marshall Field and Company of Chicago. Operations continued to decline and Chisholm Halle, son of Walter who had become president in 1966, resigned in 1974. Medium-priced goods were introduced but failed help the stores and in 1981 they were sold to Associated Investors Corporation which closed or sold all stores in 1982. The collection consists of approximately ten containers (8.0 linear feet) of photographs and three containers (2.0 linear feet) of negatives plus six glass plate negatives and 20 transparencies detailing, among other things, employee portraits, employees' activities inside and outside of the workplace, portraits of executives, exterior and interior views of the store and its branches, store promotions, and major events in the company's history.

9Title:  Cleveland Hebrew Schools Photographs     
 Creator:  Cleveland Hebrew Schools 
 Dates:  1912-1976 
 Abstract:  The Cleveland Hebrew Schools evolved from the Montefiore Free Hebrew School (later called the Talmud Torah) established in Cleveland, Ohio, ca. 1885. In 1905, another communal Hebrew school was founded by Joshua Flock and Aaron Garber. In 1907, the two schools combined, the name remaining the Talmud Torah. In 1913, the Talmud Torah received an Ohio charter and changed its name to the Cleveland Hebrew School and Institute, enrolling students in grades one through eight. Abraham Hayyim Friedland, an internationally known educator, headed the school from 1921-1939. In 1926, a high school was added, and a Parent Council was organized in 1930. Bernard Levitin served as superintendent from 1944-1970, a period of movement of Cleveland's Jewish population to the suburbs. A reorganization of the Cleveland Hebrew Schools took place during this period, with some Cleveland branches closing and new suburban schools opening. As the number of Jewish day schools and congregational classes grew, the Cleveland Hebrew Schools enrollment dropped and branches were further consolidated. In 1955, the Parent Council organized Camp Oneg, a Hebrew summer day camp, and Ganon Gil Nursery, a Hebrew school for preschool children. In 1967 Cleveland Hebrew High School merged into Akiva High School. The collection consists of individual portraits of some of the organization's leaders, such as A. H.
