Abstract: Manuel G. Silberger was a Cleveland, Ohio, artist of Hungarian Jewish descent. Silberger grew up and was educated in Hungary, and emigrated to Cleveland in 1921. He attended evening art classes at John Huntington Polytechnic Institute, and later worked for more than 30 years at the Morgan Lithograph Company on Payne Ave. in Cleveland. Silberger created artworks in a number of media; including lithography, etching, and oil paintings. Some of his works were created under the auspices of the Works Progress Administration's Federal Art Project. His work included portraits, Cleveland and country scenes, and workers. He was a founding member of the editorial board of Crossroad, a short-lived arts and ideas journal published in Cleveland beginning in 1939. The collection consists of artwork, exhibition catalogues, awards, correspondence, and newspaper clippings.
