41Title:  Swiss Society Records     
 Creator:  Swiss Society 
 Dates:  1872-1970 
 Abstract:  The Swiss Society was created in 1872 as the Schweizerischen Unterstuetzungs Verein by a group of members from the Swiss male chorus, then known as the Schweizer Gesang Verein Gruetli Bund, in Cleveland, Ohio. A mutual aid society for those of Swiss descent, the Swiss Society provided not only insurance to members, but also sought to preserve and nurture the German-Swiss culture, language, and literature. In 1873, the Swiss Society affiliated itself as a branch society with the Gruetli Bund der Vereinigten Staaten von Nord Amerika, which later became the North American Swiss Alliance. In 1881, the Society reorganized as the Schweizer Verein von Cleveland, Ohio. In 1885, the Swiss Society in Cleveland was elected as the executive society for the North American Swiss Alliance. By 1942, the group officially adopted the English name of Swiss Society and was still in operation in 1994. The Swiss Ladies Aid Society was closely associated with the Swiss Society and was originally known as the Schweizer Frauen Unterstuetzungs Verein. It was founded in 1887 in order to support women who were Swiss born, of Swiss descent or married to a Swiss man, and to provide health insurance, comradery, and promote efforts to maintain the German-Swiss language. Eventually the Ladies Aid Society also became an affiliate of the North American Swiss Alliance. The collection consists of minutes, financial records, and member policies. The collection includes the records of the Swiss Ladies Aid Society.

46Title:  Workmen's Circle of Cleveland Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Workmen's Circle of Cleveland 
 Dates:  1939-2002 
 Abstract:  The Workmen's Circle of Cleveland (f. 1904) is a secular Jewish fraternal organization formed in the United States to perpetuate Yiddish language and culture, support and promote the liberal political agenda, offer both health and death benefits, and provide a meeting place for fellowship. Its Yiddish cultural programming includes lectures, readings, concerts, third Passover seders, and the I.L. Peretz Workmen's Circle School, a supplementary program for children. Branch 1030, one of a number of Cleveland, Ohio, branches, was the first English speaking branch and was founded in 1939. Following World War II and the Holocaust and the continuing acculturation into American life of the descendants of its Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrant founders, the Workmen's Circle, in Cleveland and nationwide, has been experiencing significant and continuous loss of membership. The Workmen's Circle's group health plan and death benefits, both of which are available on a non-sectarian basis, are the major source of membership. These programs have had difficulty attracting members since the proliferation of health maintenance organizations and health insurance plans. The collection consists of correspondence, ledgers, membership lists, minutes, and newsletters relating to Branch 1030. Also in the collection are regional records, and national office constitutions, correspondence, and reports.
