 Creator:  Alliance of Poles of America 
 Dates:  1895-1971 
 Abstract:  The Alliance of Poles of America is a fraternal insurance organization which broke away from the Polish National Alliance in 1895, over the issue of membership for non-Roman Catholic Poles. Originally a Cleveland, Ohio, organization, it now includes groups throughout Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania, and has opened its membership to men and women with other than Polish or Catholic backgrounds. In 1917 it changed its name from the Alliance of Poles in Ohio to the Alliance of Poles of America. The collection consists of minutes, correspondence, publications, lists, and drafts of articles. A major topic of the correspondence is the Polish Armed Forces in Canada during World War II. A major correspondent is Konstanty Zielecki.
