The Ukrainian Museum-Archives in Cleveland, Ohio: A Historical Study 1948-1994.
The Ukrainian Museum Archives (UMA), an amalgam of museums archive, and library, in Cleveland, Ohio, is a unique ethnic institution constituting a collection of both primary and secondary sources amassed over a period of more than 40 years, including documents, manuscripts, books, pamphlets, periodicals, newspapers, and a variety of artifacts on the subject of Ukraine and its people particularly its people as immigrants. A historical study of the UMA reveals a multidimensional chronicle of an ethnic institution which spans international borders yet is simultaneously integrated into an urban American neighborhood. The study separates the institution's history into four distinct periods, and for each period profiles key personages in its growth, important acquisitions, and dilemmas in organizing the materials, drawing similarities between UMA operations and the field of special collections in general. Various collections and permanent exhibits, from books and periodicals to stamps, coins, and art, are highlighted and explored individually. Ten photographs and photocopied title pages of seven of the UMA's rarest holdings are appended. (Contains 53 references.) (BEW)
