8Title:  Abington Foundation Records     
 Creator:  Abington Foundation 
 Dates:  1983-2004 
 Abstract:  The Abington Foundation (f. 1983) was created by David Knight Ford (1894-1993) and Elizabeth Kingsley Ford (1896-1990) to support organizations, generally in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, dedicated to promoting education, health care, economic independence, and cultural activities. The foundation's grant-making philosophy was devised by Mr. Ford and his four sons who comprised the original board of trustees. Each funding area had a particular focus. The educational focus is pre-primary through higher education, and thus the foundation has supported a vast array of educational institutions and programs such as Early Childhood Options of University City, museums (e.g. Cleveland Museum of Natural History), historical societies (e.g. Moreland Hills Historical Society, and the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad) and universities, including Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University Foundation, Inc. The foundation's healthcare focus is on geriatrics and nursing with grants going to the Eliza Bryant Center, Senior Citizen Resources, Inc., The Center for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, American Red Cross, and many others. Economic independence with a focus on the promotion or sustaining of individual and family self-sufficiency has led the foundation to give grants to organizations such as the Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland, Ohio Hunger Task Force, People's Emergency Shelter, and Habitat for Humanity. In promoting local culture with an emphasis on arts education and historic preservation, the Abington Foundation has made grants to artistic enterprises and groups such as Art House, Inc., Beck Center for the Arts, The Holden Arboretum, Cleveland Public Theater, and Musical Arts Association. The Fords wished to serve their country and community, and dedicated their lives to doing so. David Knight Ford was a captain in the United States armed forces during World War I, joining shortly after graduating from Yale University. After the war, he returned to school and earned a law degree from Western Reserve University. His wife, Elizabeth, volunteered with the Red Cross as a nurse during the First World War, as well as a volunteer nurse's aide during the Second World War, and founded the Ohio League for Nursing (originally the Cleveland Area League for Nursing). Elizabeth earned the Margaret Ireland Award for Civic Achievement in 1973 from the Women's City Club for her works. They married in 1920 and remained so for 70 years until Elizabeth's death in 1990. David's business acumen led to the founding of the Lubrizol Corporation, and later the Lubrizol Foundation. He donated the family farm (originally settled by his great grandfather) situated on land now part of University Circle to help develop Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals. Parts of the farm became the sites of the Case School of Applied Sciences, Western Reserve College, and University Hospitals. Named for the area of New England where David Ford's ancestors settled, the Abington Foundation has continued after the deaths of its founders, providing assistance through 2012. Though both the elder Fords have died, family members continue to serve on the Board of Directors. The collection consists of correspondence, financial records, grant proposals, minutes, newspaper clippings, and receipts.

12Title:  James C. Hardie Papers     
 Creator:  James C. Hardie 
 Dates:  1952-2002 
 Abstract:  James C. Hardie (1922-2009), an independent development and public relations consultant in Cleveland, Ohio. Through his professional relationship with industrialist and philanthropist Frederick Crawford (1891-1994), Hardie was impressed with the caliber of Cleveland corporations and their ability to support educational endeavors as well as with the region's pioneering work in philanthropy, most notably its creation of the first unified community fund raising campaign. Hardie became Vice President of Case Institute of Technology in 1967. He held the same office when Case merged with neighboring Western Reserve University in 1967, serving there until 1969. While at Case and CWRU he continued to develop new and innovative ideas in the development/fundraising field and was allowed by the university to consult for John Carroll University's development department. Through his work with John Carroll University and other such opportunities, he broadened his career purview and embraced new concepts. He became involved with the American College Public Relations Association, a relationship that led him to envision many more opportunities in the development field. Hardie also continued to develop new insights, ideas, and methods for development campaigns on his own. Most significant was his "top 100" philosophy which was a change from generally accepted practice in the field. Hardie proposed that 75% of any fundraising goal needed to come from the top 100 prospects, 20% from the next 400 and all the remaining gifts would only make up 5% of contributors. He first used this technique on a campaign he was asked to run at Case Western Reserve University. This strategy was highly successful and he continued to use it with almost all of his clients. After being asked to consult for St. Luke's Hospital in Cleveland, Hardie decided to leave CWRU. In June of 1969 he formed his own consulting firm to focus on assisting non-profit organizations with development including capital campaigns, general fundraising, bequests and deferred gifts programs, feasibility studies, and public relations. He also often assisted with the hiring and training of development staff for these institutions. Hardie created a very successful consulting career, working with more than sixty mostly northeastern Ohio clients, mostly cultural, educational and service institutions. His consulting work raised hundreds of millions of dollars for his clients and greatly boosted Cleveland's national reputation as a center for philanthropy. He also advised some 200 other non-profit institutions regarding their development and philanthropic needs on an unpaid basis. He was one of the founders of The Corporate 1% Program for Higher Education, a program designed to increase corporate giving to higher education, and was a trustee of the George S. Dively Foundation. The collection consists of agendas, annual reports, brochures, budgets, calendars, charts, client publications, correspondence, datebooks, financial reports, forms, grant proposals, invoices, job descriptions, lists, magazine and newspaper articles, memoranda, minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, news releases, notebooks, notes, outlines, photographs, presentations, reports, speeches, statistics, and studies.

15Title:  Saint Luke's Foundation (Hospital) Records     
 Creator:  Saint Luke's Hospital 
 Dates:  1904-1997 
 Abstract:  Saint Luke's Hospital was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1894 as the Cleveland General Hospital. Its purpose was to provide clinical training for medical students of Wooster University and as a training school for nurses. At the same time, the College Building and Hospital Association was incorporated. The College Building and Hospital Association became the Saint Luke's Hospital Association of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1904. Medical staff at the hospital affiliated with the medical department of Ohio Wesleyan University. In 1906 Cleveland General Hospital was renamed Saint Luke's Hospital. Cleveland industrialist and philanthropist Francis Fleury Prentiss provided financial support and leadership, serving as president of the association from 1906 until his death in 1937. His wife, Elisabeth Severance Allen Prentiss, succeeded him as president until her death in 1944. The Saint Luke's Hospital School of Nursing closed in 1970. In 1980, the Saint Luke's Hospital Association adopted a long range plan of acquisition and new programs. By 1983, it held leases on five medical buildings and had control over Saint Luke's Hospital, Shaker Medical Center Hospital, and the for-profit Medical Outreach Services, Inc. In 1992, the Saint Luke's system merged with MetroHealth Medical Center, and its name was changed to MetroHealth Saint Luke's Medical Center. The merger dissolved in 1993, but the affiliation continued. In 1993 the name of the hospital changed once more, becoming Saint Luke's Medical Center. In 1997, Saint Luke's Medical Center was sold to Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corporation and its regional partners, the Sisters of Charity of Saint Augustine. The proceeds of this sale and the endowments of the Saint Luke's Hospital Association and Saint Luke's Medical Center were used to create the Saint Luke's Foundation. The collection consists of the institutional records of Saint Luke's Hospital, MetroHealth Saint Luke's Medical Center, Saint Luke's Medical Center, and the Saint Luke's Hospital Association, including historical records, correspondence, contracts and agreements, minutes, financial statements, wills, newspaper clippings, publications, transcripts, reports, and surveys.
