HISTORICAL SKETCH

The Organization for the Rebirth of Ukraine was founded in 1931 in the United States to represent and promote the interests of independent Ukraine. The Minnesota chapter was one of the early local branches as a result of the efforts of the local Ukrainian American activist, Professor Alexander Granovsky and other members of the Minneapolis / St. Paul Ukrainian American community.

DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION

The records of the Minnesota Branch (No. 32) are largely in the Ukranian language, and are comprised of administrative documents such as meeting minutes, correspondence, circulars and mailings, and conference information. Some information on the national level ODWU is available in the collection, due to the fact that the national President Alexander A. Granovsky was a member of this branch. Records date from the 1920s through the 1970s. Note the grouping of records of historical nature collated together and labelled "more important documents and letters to the 32nd branch," in box 1.
