Abstract: The B'nai B'rith Youth Organization (BBYO), a youth service club, was introduced into Ohio in 1932, when a chapter was founded in Cleveland, Ohio. As more chapters were founded the state was organized into two regions, Greater Ohio and Southern Ohio-Kentucky. The collection consists of membership records, newspaper clippings, correspondence, reunion programs, scrapbooks, mounted photographs, and program descriptions. A small portion of the collection consists of records collected by Emanuel Stern, a BBYO founder in the Cleveland, Ohio, area. The material includes chapters in Akron, Canton, Cleveland, Elyria, Lorain, Mansfield, Toledo, Warren, and Youngstown.
