1Title:  Koryta-Kundmueller and Related Families Photographs     
 Creator:  Koryta and Kundmueller Families 
 Dates:  1879-2003 
 Abstract:  The Koryta-Kundmueller and Related Families is an extended family group which grew out of one Bavarian family from 19th Century Germany, which settled in Cleveland, Ohio. Intermarriage with other Germans from Silesia and eventual marriages with neighbors from Bohemia part of the present day Czech Republic, produced five major lines of this family. Frank Koryta, the son of Czech immigrants Josef and Barbara (Poskocil) Koryta, married Clara Stipek, descendant of Czech immigrant George Stipek. These families had settled in Cleveland, Ohio in the 1870s. Several children of George John and Katherine (Wichert) Kundemueller married into these Czech American families. The Kundemueller family had come to Cleveland, Ohio from Bavaria in 1857 and the Wichert family had come from Silesia in 1873. The collection consists of more than 700 images in color and black and white, depicting the events in family life over the span of more than one hundred fifty years.

2Title:  Temple-Tifereth Israel Photographs     
 Creator:  Temple-Tifereth Israel 
 Dates:  1870-2008 
 Abstract:  The Temple-Tifereth Israel is the second oldest Jewish congregation in Cleveland, Ohio. The congregation was founded in 1850 after several members of Anshe Chesed, Cleveland's first congregation, left that congregation as the result of a dispute over religious ritual. After implementing religious reforms in the service and hiring a dedicated rabbi for the congregation, Tifereth Israel eventually built the first synagogue for the congregation in 1855 at Huron and Miami Streets. In 1894 the congregation moved to Willson Avenue in the Woodland neighborhood and then to Wade Park on East 105th Street in 1924. The congregation dedicated The Temple Branch in Beachwood in 1969. In 2010 it was announced that the East 105th Street building would be renovated by Case Western Reserve University for use as a performing arts center. The congregation currently makes its home in Beachwood. The collection consists of oversize confirmation photographs. Each individual photograph, except the ones before 1909, depicts individual portraits of each member of the class for the given year. The photographs prior to 1909 are group portraits. Each portrait includes photographs of the rabbis of the congregation at the time, including Moses Gries, Abba Hillel Silver, and Daniel Silver. There are no photographs for 1871-1897, 1952, 1954, 1987 and 1988.

3Title:  University Circle United Methodist Church Photographs     
 Creator:  University Circle United Methodist Church 
 Dates:  1842-2010 
 Abstract:  The University Circle United Methodist Church, formerly known as Epworth-Euclid United Methodist Church, is descended from the earliest Methodist societies in Cleveland, Ohio, having been formed in 1919 from 2 historic congregations: Euclid Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church and Epworth Memorial Church. For over 60 years the congregation has occupied a landmark building in Cleveland's University Circle neighborhood, nicknamed the "Holy Oil Can" because of its tall copper spire. The Euclid Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church began with Methodist classes at Doan's Corners in 1831. A church building, known as Doan Street Methodist Episcopal Church, was constructed in 1837 on Doan (East 105th) Street. A second building was built in 1870 and razed in 1885. In 1887 a new building went up on Euclid Avenue at Oakdale (East 93rd), and the church became known as Euclid Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1919-1920, the Euclid Avenue and Epworth Memorial congregations merged, creating the Epworth-Euclid Methodist Church at East 107th Street and Chester Avenue. In 2010, First United Methodist Church and Epworth-Euclid United Methodist Church merged to become University Circle United Methodist Church. The collection consists of approximately 7490 prints (a mixture of both color and black and white), 53 35mm slides, 104 glass slides, 73 negatives, and 315 35mm negative strips. It also contains 40 CD/DVDs, five cassette tapes, three 3.5 inch floppy discs, six audio wire reels, one digital video cassette master, ten VHS tapes, three audio reels, and two film reels.
