1Title:  Bartley J. Kilkenny Papers     
 Creator:  Kilkenny, Bartley J. 
 Dates:  1935-2000 
 Abstract:  Bartley J. Kilkenny (1901-1993) was involved in the Irish American community in Cleveland, Ohio, and was an active member of several Irish American Clubs. He was involved in the founding of the East Side Irish American Club and served as president for a term. He was born in Ballina, County Mayo, Ireland. He met his wife, Winnifred L. Kilkenny, nee Padden (1899-1995) during his days at Bofield school in Ballina, County Mayo. He immigrated to the United States on June 3, 1920 and lived with his aunt, Mrs. Quigley, until he married Winnifred on June 23, 1926. They settled originally in East Cleveland, Ohio and later in Euclid, Ohio. He met the Irish president Eamon De Valera during his visit to the United States, and also during his own visit to Ireland in 1960. Bartley J. Kilkenny was the father of five children, grandfather of eighteen children, and great-grandfather of twenty-six children. Winnifred L. Kilkenny worked with the Firestone family as their nanny and friend until her wedding day. During World War II, she joined the work force and continued working until she reached retirement age. The collection consists of memorial books, death notices and obituaries for both Bartley and Winnifred; newspaper clippings pertaining to St. Patrick's Day Parades and the Kilkenny family; identified photographs; and a brief history of the East Side Irish American Club, Cleveland, Ohio, originally known as the Euclid Irish American Club.
