1Title:  Casimir Bielen Papers, Series II     
 Creator:  Bielen, Casimir 
 Dates:  1973-1979 
 Abstract:  Casimir Bielen was active in various political, ethnic, and community action groups in Cleveland, Ohio. In his position as a leader of the Nationalities Services Center Polish American Conference, he was nominated in 1975 to represent that organization as a member of the Study Group on Racial Isolation in the Public Schools. The Study Group was a citizens' committee formed to provide community leadership and assure peaceful implementation of court ordered desegregation of Cleveland's public schools. The Group consisted of a loose coalition of 15 organizations. Study Group members used its reports and discussions as the basis for planning by their own organizations for response to the decision, program activities, and constituent education. The collection consists of materials collected by Bielen related to groups with interest in public school desegregation and busing in Cleveland, Ohio. These include minutes, agendas, memoranda, correspondence, reports, legal briefs, circulars, newsletters, and newspaper clippings. The largest group of materials relates to the Study Group on Racial Isolation in the Public Schools. Also represented are the Nationalities Services Center, the Greater Cleveland Project, and the Citizens' Council for Ohio Schools.
