1Title:  Hiram House Social Settlement Records     
 Creator:  Hiram House Social Settlement 
 Dates:  1893-1972 
 Abstract:  Hiram House is a pioneer Cleveland, Ohio, social settlement founded in 1896 by a group of Hiram College students led by George Bellamy, who later became Commissioner of Recreation for the city of Cleveland. During the height of its growth the settlement offered a full range of social, educational and recreational activities, but since 1948 it has concentrated its resources on Hiram House Camp in the suburb of Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Before 1948 its primary service area was centered in a neighborhood populated primarily by Jews, Italians and African Americans. The collection consists of minutes, resolutions, financial statements, ledger books, legal papers, correspondence, and employment and administrative policy materials of Hiram House, correspondence and legal and financial papers of George Bellamy, and correspondence from Samuel Mather and other supporters of the settlement.
