1Title:  Thomas P. and Margaret Campbell Family Papers     
 Creator:  Campbell, Thomas P. and Margaret, Family 
 Dates:  1837-2003 
 Abstract:  The Thomas P. and Margaret Campbell family originated in Doona, County Mayo, Ireland. All members of this family who immigrated the United States had settled in Cleveland, Ohio, by 1928. The first member of this to immigrate to Cleveland was Patrick, who came to this country in the early 1900s. He was soon followed by five siblings, all of which took typical careers such as domestic work, railroad conductor, painter, and the priesthood. The Campbell genealogy dates back to Thomas Campbell (1857-1940) and Bridget Leneghan (1857-1951), who lived in Doona, East Ballcroy, Wesport, County Mayo. The collection consists of the Campbell and Conway battle hymns which describe the history of these two families, correspondence, a crest, an examination paper, genealogies, handwritten notes on eight family members, a land record, map, medals, newspaper clippings, obituaries, pedigree chart, photographs, a poem, and typescripts.

2Title:  Burke School of Irish Dance Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Burke School of Irish Dance 
 Dates:  1980-1985 
 Abstract:  The Burke School of Irish Dance (f. 1958) was founded by an Irish American, Theresa Burke, in Cleveland, Ohio. Her father, Thomas Scott, (b.1906) immigrated from County Sligo in the 1920s to the United States, and initially settled in New York. According to Theresa, he was the first person in Cleveland to teach traditional Irish dancing to a competitive standard. Sharing her father's love for Irish dance, Burke followed in his footsteps as the founder and owner of two Irish dance schools in Ohio, one in Cleveland, the other in Youngstown (f. 1965), and one out of state in Pennsylvania, (f.1971). The collection consists of a poem, newsletters, notes on the history of Irish dancing and a journal article.
