Newspaper clippings, brochures, correspondence, photographs, books, and other artifacts documenting the Polish community in Baltimore and Maryland
The Archives of Maryland Polonia was founded in 1982 to preserve, document and make available to researchers the history of Polish immigrants and people of Polish heritage in the State of Maryland. In an effort to document every aspect of the Polish experience in Maryland, the public is encouraged to donate items related to the history and genealogy of the Polish presence in Maryland.
The collection was donated to the University of Baltimore by Thomas L. Hollowak on March 15, 1999. Multiple accessions of selected items from individuals have occured since 1999, including the addition on 2 digital photographs from Mr. and Mrs. Norman Bronzert on April 22, 2017.
