Stanley Michael Brya (b. 1887) was born near Nowy Targ, Poland, and came to the United States in 1904 to escape conscription in the army. He settled in Chicago, Illinois, where he worked in slaughterhouses, and then moved to Pennsylvania and became a coal miner. In 1913, he settled in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he worked for Dayton Hudson Corporation. Brya, a self-taught historian, devoted much time to popularizing the accomplishments of his fellow countrymen; he published numerous articles in the American press.
