3Title:  Robert O'Connor Family Papers     
 Creator:  O'Connor, Robert Family 
 Dates:  1890-1994 
 Abstract:  Robert O'Connor (b. 1939) was born in Dublin, Ireland, and immigrated in 1964 to New York, as there was such high unemployment in Ireland at that time. After completing a science degree, he traveled first to the United Kingdom, and subsequently to the United States. He moved to Chicago, Illinois, as part of a job transfer, and a new career took him to Ohio in 1988. O'Connor married Diane Baron in 1967, and together they have four children. Since coming to the United States, O'Connor went back to Ireland once to seek employment, but did not find the same opportunities there as in the United States. O'Connor has traced his family history in Ireland back a number of generations, identifying relationships primarily with the Sullivan family in County Cork. Living and growing up in Ireland during the turbulent times of the 1960s and 1970s left a deep impression on O'Connor. Believing that children are the true victims of the conflict in Northern Ireland, O'Connor and his wife set up The Irish Children's Fund in 1982. The aim of this fund is to provide money to allow Catholic and Protestant children of poor families in Belfast and Derry, Northern Ireland, to come to the United States and experience life with families in an area free of conflict. This program attempts to foster relationships between these two religious groups. In 1986, the O'Connors set up the Creative Irish Gifts Catalog Company, based in Streetsboro, Ohio, with a sole purpose of providing funding to continue the Irish Children's Fund. The collection consists of photocopies of certificates of birth, marriage, naturalization, diploma from University College Dublin, Ireland, an essay, family tree, genealogy, passport, and five short stories.

4Title:  Phoenix Peace Fountain Records     
 Creator:  Phoenix Peace Fountain 
 Dates:  1993-2003 
 Abstract:  The Phoenix Peace Fountain (2002) was created by Michael Whitely, president and chief executive officer of Inspirational Media International (f. 1998) located in Painesville, Ohio. This company specializes in resolving conflict and nurturing positive relationships using educational programs and other means. As a result, Inspirational Media International was approached and asked to design cross-community initiatives accenting the similarities between the Catholic and Protestant communities, after the signing of the Peace Accord in Northern Ireland in 1998. Whitely conceived the idea of a Phoenix Peace Fountain, built from weapons collected by the police forces in Ohio, that today stands in Northern Ireland as a symbol of peace and hope for the future. Individuals and organizations throughout the United States contributed to this project in donating their time, efforts and products needed for this fountain to become a reality. The Fountain was a gift from the communities of the United States to the communities of Northern Ireland and is on permanent view in Anderson Park, Coleraine, Northern Ireland. It serves to illustrate a lasting reminder to the people of Northern Ireland of America's support in the Northern Ireland peace process. Over four hundred individuals and organizations in the United States were involved in the making of this eight-ton, twelve-foot stainless steel fountain. Thousands of weapons seized by law enforcement agencies throughout America, were used in the making of this monument. The use of these weapons symbolizes the end of violence. The design of the fountain is based on the Giant's Causeway, County Antrim, in Northern Ireland, and it names the 26 councils that signed the Peace Accord, May 22, 1998. The top of the monument features a phoenix on a nest of rifles, symbolizing the story of how this bird was reborn from its own ashes, and gives a promise of a new beginning. The fountain was shipped to Northern Ireland courtesy of Air France and was unveiled on July 4, 2002. The collection consists of consist of a brochure, a calendar, newspaper clippings and a pamphlet.

Robert (b. 1939) was born in Dublin, Ireland, growing up during a time of much strife in Northern Ireland. His childhood experience left him with an impression that has remained with him all his life. To help ease the suffering of the children in Northern Ireland, he and his wife, Diane (nee Baron) decided to set up a fund to allow Protestant and Catholic children from the most derelict areas of Belfast and Derry, Northern Ireland, to come to the United States and spend a few weeks with a host family. The goal is to foster positive relations between the two groups, and is followed with various outings, events, and retreats back in Northern Ireland. The O'Connor's established Creative Irish Gifts Catalog Company, which is based in Streetsboro, Ohio. The company provides a variety of products made in Ireland, through their catalog. Creative Irish Gifts Catalog functions as a fundraising effort to sustain the Irish Children's Fund, Inc. (f. 1982). The latter is an organization dedicated to creating lasting peace in Northern Ireland. All profits from the catalog directly support The Irish Children's Fund, and those working for the catalog originally did so in a volunteer capacity. The Irish Children's Fund, Inc. is the largest youth organization in Northern Ireland, and has received recognition by the government and civic and social service groups in the United States and Ireland. Today, it is used as a model for other international organizations that are now assisting children in troubled areas.
