1Title:  Workmen's Circle of Cleveland Photographs     
 Creator:  Workmen's Circle of Cleveland 
 Dates:  1900-1980 
 Abstract:  The Workmen's Circle (der Arbeiter Ring) is a fraternal organization designed to perpetuate Yiddish language and culture, seek social reform and provide support and protection for immigrants. The first Cleveland, Ohio, branch, No. 79, was organized in 1904. The organization provides insurance, operates a cemetery, teaches Yiddish classes, and has supported such issues as unionizing the Cleveland garment industry, child labor laws, social security, civil rights, and fighting Soviet anti-semitism. In 1975, there were six branches in Cleveland, with a school, the Workmen's Circle Educational Center, located on South Green Road. The collection consists of images of the activities of the Workmen's Circle of Cleveland, Ohio; including individual and group portraits of members and views of organization meetings, banquets, theatrical presentations, and activities at Camp Vladek, the organization's summer camp and resort in Rock Creek, Geauga County, Ohio.
