1Title:  East End Neighborhood House Records, Series II     
 Creator:  East End Neighborhood House 
 Dates:  1910-1976 
 Abstract:  East End Neighborhood House was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1907. It originally offered domestic skills classes and recreational activities to new immigrants principally from Hungary. The Center is a social settlement/community center serving Cleveland's Buckeye-Woodland-Woodhill community. Hungarian during the first half of the century, this area became largely Black during the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout this period, the center adjusted its activities to meet the needs of the area and also to take advantage of newly available federal funds. The programs reflected increased attention to the needs of senior citizens and also included expanded daycare programs and mental-health programs. The collection consists of minutes of the Board of Trustees, membership lists, corporate documents, personnel and director search records, general correspondence, financial records, and general program descriptions and budget statements. The collection pertains to the center's operation and includes material relating to its financial crisis, 1974-76, its search for a black director, and the changing racial composition of the area served by the center.

4Title:  Cleveland: NOW! Records     
 Creator:  Cleveland: NOW! 
 Dates:  1967-1977 
 Abstract:  Cleveland: NOW! was a multiracial joint public and private program for extensive urban renewal and revitalization in Cleveland, Ohio, created by Mayor Carl B. Stokes following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968. The program planned to raise $1.5 billion over ten years. The first 2-year phase called for spending $177 million for projects in eight areas: neighborhood housing rehabilitation; accelerated urban renewal; the creation of 16,000 jobs; expansion of small business opportunities; city planning; health, welfare, and day care centers; summer recreation programs for youth; and the construction of Camp Cleveland. The program was discredited due to the Glenville Shootout of July 23, 1968, a gun battle between police and members of the Black Nationalists Organization of New Libya who obtained weapons with funds received indirectly from Cleveland: NOW! Stokes and the NOW! trustees were sued in 1970 by 8 policemen wounded in the shootout, but the suit was dismissed in 1977. Although Cleveland: NOW! met many of its initial goals, the organization ceased activities for the most part after 1970, and was formally dissolved in 1980. The collection consists of articles of incorporation, minutes, board of trustees records, correspondence, financial records, records of the major programs, publicity information, newspaper clippings, and proceedings of lawsuits. The collection pertains to a dramatic, multiracial attempt on a large scale to address and ameliorate a wide range of social ills by initial infusions of large amounts of money. The financial records and contributors correspondence contain detailed information for a possible demographic examination of contributors to the program.
