Abstract: The Anton Zverina family was established in Cleveland, Ohio, by Antonin Zverina and his wife Kristina Kletecka Zverina, who immigrated to Cleveland from Bohemia in 1874. Their son, Anton Zverina, owned a grocery store in the Broadway area and pioneered the processing of chicory root as an ingredient in coffee blends and as a coffee substitute. He built a chicory factory on Blanche Ave. in Cleveland, and later added a rye flour mill and a Bohemian rye bread bakery. The collection consists of a family history, genealogical data, writings by family members, receipts, and newspaper clippings. Also included is a detailed description of a trip around the world taken by Rosamond Zverina, daughter of Anton.
