1Title:  Educational League Records     
 Creator:  Educational League 
 Dates:  1897-1966 
 Abstract:  The Educational League was initiated by members of B'nai B'rith, Baron de Hirsch Lodge of Cleveland, Ohio, in 1897, as an independent organization whose mission was to provide Jewish orphans with financial aid for higher education. Based in Cleveland and chartered in the State of Ohio, the League's operation covered twenty states in the central United States. Presidents of the League included Martin A. Marks, Dr. Samuel Wolfenstein, Rabbi Moses Gries, and Albert A. Benesch. It's original mission soon expanded to include any Jewish student in need. Money advanced was to be a repayable loan, rather than a grant. Beginning in the late 1920s, the League concentrated exclusively on assisting students from the Cleveland area, or out-ot-town students attending Cleveland area schools. Around the same time, the League joined with the Jewish Welfare Federation of Cleveland and the Cleveland Section, National Council of Jewish Women to coordinate the review and approval of loans. This alliance was known as the Joint Conference on Educational Fund Loans (ca. 1930-1945), and as the Joint Educational Loan Committee thereafter. The collection consists of correspondence, minutes, reports, and beneficiary files. The beneficiary files are arranged alphabetically by last name of beneficiary.

2Title:  Cleveland Jewish History Sources     
 Creator:  Cleveland Jewish History Sources 
 Dates:  1819-1956 
 Abstract:  The Cleveland Jewish History Sources Collection is a card file assembled between 1954-1956 by the American Jewish History Center of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, to support a planned volume on the history of Cleveland, Ohio, Jewry. This intention was realized with the publication of History of the Jews of Cleveland by Lloyd P. Gartner in 1978. Source material for this card file, which covers the span from the early nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, includes both the national Anglo-Jewish press and local Cleveland sources, including the general press, the Anglo-Jewish press, and Jewish communal records. Rabbi Jack J. Herman and Judah Rubinstein were the local Cleveland researchers for the project. The collection consists of 16,000 index cards containing information about Cleveland's Jewish community that was obtained primarily from newspapers. These cards have been arranged into fourteen broad categories: Arts; Charities; Clubs and Societies, Various; Community Services; Economic Life; Education; Political Affairs; Population; Sermons and Lectures; Social Life; Synagogues; Synagogue Related; Umbrella Organizations, and Zionism. Within these categories, primary and sometimes secondary sub-headings are arranged alphabetically and then chronologically. As prescribed by the AJHC, each research finding was typed on 4x6, un-ruled index cards and described in the following top-down order: top left, the city and chronological period; top right, topical classification; single line description of the finding; excerpt(s) from the finding. In many instances, the researchers stapled to the card photocopies of pertinent portions of the source material. The collection, however, contains exceptions to this general procedure: a number of 3x5 cards with handwritten entries (evidently, unprocessed research findings) and a number of 4x6 cards with attached paper negative photocopy, i.e., white-on-black and mirror-image text.
