 Abstract:  Henry B. Ollendorff (1906-1979) was a German-born and -trained lawyer who took up social work after coming to the United States to escape Nazi Germany. Head social worker at the Friendly Inn Social Settlement in 1943 and executive director of the Neighborhood Settlement Association from 1948-1963, Ollendorff founded the Cleveland International Program, which grew into the Council of International Programs, formally established in 1956 as a social worker exchange program designed to promote international understanding. In the next 22 years, the Cleveland International Program brought social workers from 105 countries to the United States. In 1978, trustees of the Council established a foundation in Ollendorff's name to continue his efforts toward world peace and friendship. The collection consists of an affidavit, annual reports, awards, birth records, certificates, college degrees, correspondence, forms, legal documents, lists, magazine articles, memoranda, newsletters, newspaper articles and clippings, notes, obituaries, pamphlets, press releases, proclamations, programs, reference letters, reports, school records, scrapbooks, speech/lecture texts, summaries, and writings.
