2Title:  Julius Klein Papers     
 Creator:  Klein, Julius 
 Dates:  1900-1993 
 Abstract:  Julius Klein was a Cleveland, Ohio, Jewish businessman born in Slovakia. He emigrated to the United States in 1885, and settled in Cleveland in 1900. In 1900, he and his future mother-in-law, Rebecca Korach, purchased a skirt manufacturing company formerly known as Goodman and Korach Co. The new company, known as Julius Klein and Co., closed within a few years. In 1906, Klein was employed by Korach Sonnenfield Co., a cloak manufacturing company which in 1907 became the Korach-Ecker Co. In 1913, Klein opened Klein's Economy Store on Woodland Ave., selling women's ready-to-wear apparel. Following Julius Klein's death, his son, Alwyn Klein, continued the business. Following his death, his wife Beatrice operated the business until its liquidation in 1959. The collection consists of financial records, including a Klein's Economy Store ledger and stock book, a Korach-Ecker account book and specifications book, miscellaneous business and genealogical documents, and a photograph.
