Abstract: The S. Korach Company was founded in 1902 by Sigmund Korach, a Jewish immigrant from Slovakia who settled in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1897. The company manufactured ready-to-wear dress and skirt garments for women. The company occupied various locations until 1913, when it occupied its permanent home at 2400 Superior Ave. The company was completely family-run, with the brothers of Sigmund Korach; Charles, Leo, and Benjamin W. Korach, serving in various positions, and son Arthur Korach as secretary. The company closed in 1935. The collection consists of correspondence, financial and legal records, blueprints of the 2400 Superior Ave. property, a 1987 description and valuation analysis of that property, and a 1934 issue of Women's Wear Daily with information about S. Korach and other Cleveland garment manufacturing companies.
