2Title:  George P. Bauer Correspondence     
 Creator:  Bauer, George P. 
 Dates:  1975-1976 
 Abstract:  George P. Bauer (1899-1988) was a social worker at Hiram House, Cleveland's first settlement house established in 1896. Cleveland, Ohio, was one of the centers of the settlement-house movement in America, one of the major and most enduring reform movements of the late 19th century. They were a response to the overcrowding, impoverishment, corruption, and disease caused by the rapid industrialization and growth of many cities during the latter half of the century. They are closely identified with the various reforms of the Progressive Era in America. Unique to the movement was the attempt to produce change by working from within those areas of the city and the segments of its population affected by urban problems. By World War I, a variety of settlements in addition to Hiram House existed, each serving a distinct neighborhood. Hiram House initially served the Jewish (later Italian and then Black) community along lower Woodland Avenue in Cleveland. The settlements generally enjoyed autonomy prior to World War I, but by 1930 many came to be dependent on centralized welfare campaigns. The collection consists of correspondence between Bauer and John J. Grabowski regarding Bauer's experiences during his time at Hiram House. The correspondence includes information concerning social settlements in general, and Hiram House in particular, including the relationship between the settlement, the various ethnic groups and their churches, the Communist activities in the neighborhood, and observations on Hiram House founder George Bellamy.

3Title:  Morris and Eleanor Stamm Papers     
 Creator:  Stamm, Morris and Eleanor 
 Dates:  1936-1986 
 Abstract:  Morris and Elanor Stamm were labor, peace, civil rights and political activists from Cleveland, Ohio. Morris Stamm emigrated from Russia and came to Cleveland in 1916, where he was a laborer for 61 years. He joined the Communist Party in 1928 and was a shop floor organizer for the United Electrical Workers (UEW) in the Cleveland area. Stamm fought as a foot soldier with the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in the Spanish Civil War from 1937-1938. He married Eleanor Ginsberg in 1940. In 1949, Stamm was fined and jailed for picketing violations in a bitter strike of the Fawick-Airflex company called by Local 735 of the UEW. In the 1970s, Morris and Eleanor led the Cleveland Committee for a Democratic Spain, and were highly involved in the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade. Eleanor was politically active throughout her life, holding memberships in the American Youth Congress, the Young Communist League and the Youth Committee of the American League Against War and Fascism. The collection consists of material relating to the Abraham Lincoln Brigade and the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, including English- and Spanish-language publications, correspondence, minutes, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, newsletters, propaganda, posters, paintings, programs, reports and research papers. The collection also contains similar document types pertaining to other activities and organizations the Stamms were involved in, especially the United States Committee for a Democratic Spain. Included is material re: the strike of the Fawick-Airflex Co. in 1949, personal manuscripts and writings, and material pertaining to politics in the Cleveland metro area during the 1970s. The collection pertains primarily to the Spanish Civil War and Morris Stamm's participation in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, the effort to establish democracy in post-war Spain, socialism and communism, and labor unrest during the 20th century.
