This "Little Hungary" at one time had the largest concentration of Hungarian Americans in the U.S., peaking at over 40,000 in 1940. The collection consists of certificates and licenses for Szalai's real estate firm and community activities, clippings, correspondence, educational records for Szalai's daughters Dorothy and Jean, and publications concerning the real estate business. The collection also contains copies and clippings of Hungarian newspapers published in Cleveland.
