1Title:  Lolette and George Hanserd Papers     
 Creator:  Hanserd, Lolette and George 
 Dates:  1939-1984 
 Abstract:  George and Lolette Hanserd were well known in the Cleveland, Ohio, African American community for their professional contributions, respectively, in podiatry and social work. In 1952 Lolette began working for the Welfare Federation of Cleveland as a member of the Group Services Council. In 1965 she was named director of a four-year project to improve interracial and intercultural relations for the Federation, after which she became director of the Human Relations Department. In 1971 her position was expanded to include associate director of the Federation of Community Planning, the new name adopted by the Welfare Federation that same year. One year later she became the first black to be named social worker of the year by the Cleveland Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. Lolette retired from the Federation in 1984. The collection consists of Lolette's professional papers from the Federation for Community Planning, as well as some personal papers of both Lolette and George. The collection pertains primarily to Lolette Hanserd's civic activities and, to a much lesser degree, to George Hanserd's medical career in Cleveland.

Rowena Jelliffe was involved in the NAACP, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, the Urban League, the National Theatre Conference, the Board of Trustees of the Cleveland Guidance Center, and the Board of Directors of the American National Theatre and Academy. Both the Jelliffes received numerous honors and awards. The collection consists of correspondence, letters, journals, a diary, date books, speeches, schedules, telegrams, reports, newspaper clippings, Karamu Board of Trustee files, Karamu Foundation files, deeds, publications, blueprints, playscripts, programming information, subject files, memoranda, drawings, manuscripts, research papers and studies, certificates, awards, and scrapbooks.
