1Title:  Planned Parenthood of Greater Cleveland, Inc. Records     
 Creator:  Planned Parenthood of Greater Cleveland, Inc. 
 Dates:  1917-1988 
 Abstract:  Planned Parenthood of Greater Cleveland opened its first clinic on March 20, 1928 in theOsborn Building, located at Huron Road and Prospect Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. Before the organization was recognized for its affiliation with Planned Parenthood Federation of American Inc., it was known as the Maternal Health Center. The center was started by Dorothy Hamilton Brush, Katherine Bingham Fisher and Hortense Oliver Shepard, a group of women who wanted to help families who needed birth control services for social and economic reasons. When the organization first began, services were only available to married women. As the organization grew, however, so did the number of services it offered. By 1965, the organization had added a west side branch, a fertility clinic, and a "mobile unit" that dispersed various maternal health services around the Cleveland area. In 1966, the Maternal Health Association changed its name to Planned Parenthood of Greater Cleveland (PPGC). Today the organization has been expanded to six different locations in Greater Cleveland and offers a variety of services including contraceptives, disease prevention education, pregnancy testing, HIV testing, and health services to men. The collection consists of correspondence, photographs, financial documents, meeting minutes, talks, educational pamphlets, press releases, event invitations, essays, newsletters, research reports, progress reports, and annual reports.

 Dates:  1969-2003 
 Abstract:  The Brush Foundation was created in 1928 by Cleveland inventor Charles F. Brush (1849-1929) to promote "research in the field of eugenics and in the regulation of the increase of population."

He and his wife, Dorothy, had been pioneers in Cleveland's early birth control movement. The collection consists of brochures, budgets, business cards, correspondence, grant proposals, journal articles, manuals, newspaper articles, notes, pamphlets, reference guides, and speeches.

4Title:  Brush Foundation Records     
 Creator:  Brush Foundation 
 Dates:  1928-1995 
 Abstract:  The Brush Foundation was created in 1928 by Cleveland, Ohio, inventor Charles F. Brush to promote research in the fields of eugenics, population and birth control. Early projects funded included the Maternal Health Association and the Brush Inquiry, a research project on the growth and development of children. From the late 1940s-1960s, intensive research on human fertility and infertility, as well as on viral infection, was funded. The Foundation played a crucial role in the establishment of the International Planned Parenthood Federation. Since the mid 1960s, the Foundation has focused on adolescent sexuality and pregnancy, defense of abortion rights, and public policy directed at limiting population growth. Local organizations and institutions that received grants from the Brush Foundation included Black Focus on the West Side; Cleveland Health Education Museum; Federation for Community Planning's Coalition for Adolescent Reproduction, Sexuality, and Health; Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland; and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History's Hamann-Todd Osteological Collection. The collection consists of board minutes, correspondence, financial statements and income tax returns, newspaper clippings, reprints and photocopied journal articles, and various publications.
