Collection includes records of the Kuryer Publishing Company that printed the Polish language daily newspaper, Kuryer Polski, and managed the Kuryer Agency. Although the collection consists of only partial records of the Kuryer Publishing Company, the material is especially valuable for both documenting the demise of the ethnic press and for a study of inter-war immigration policies. In addition, the collection possesses valuable genealogical material. The Kuryer Agency's records are primarily correspondence in Polish and English relating to the Agency's efforts in assisting its clients in citizenship matters, transmitting funds to Poland, investing in Polish bonds, purchasing steamship tickets to and from Poland, and obtaining immigration visas for relatives in Poland. The Kuryer Publishing Company's records are primarily correspondence and business records concerning the daily operations of the Kuryer Polski. Extensive correspondence with various Polish organizations document the Kuryer's importance in Polish American communities throughout North America. Letters from readers with various requests for information and assistance chronicle the Kuryer's prominence in America's Polonia.
