1Title:  Sara McLaughlin Papers     
 Creator:  McLaughlin, Sara 
 Dates:  1928-2001 
 Abstract:  Sara McLaughlin was born in 1928 in River, Achill Island, Ireland. She immigrated to the United States in 1952, settling in Cleveland, Ohio. She met her husband, Michael McLaughlin (also an Irish immigrant), in Cleveland, where they were married in 1958. Both have been extremely active in Irish American cultural and social affairs and clubs in Cleveland. In addition to her many volunteer activities with the Irish American community of Cleveland, Sara was named the 2001 Mother of the Year by the St. Patrick's Day Committee, and the 2000 Woman of the Year by the West Side Irish American Club. The McLaughlins established the Maureen McLaughlin Scholarship for Music, awarded annually at the Cleveland Feis cultural competition, in memory of their daughter Maureen. The collection consists of car banners, brochures from the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Irish Music Academy of Cleveland, Ohio, a birth certificate, a marriage certificate, a naturalization certificate, various congressional recognitions and resolutions, correspondence, a liturgy from the 2001 St. Patrick's Day mass, newspaper clippings, and two photographs.
