|Description:||9.0 c.f. (23 archives boxes), 23 reels of microfilm (35mm), and 13 photographs.|
Included is information on the establishment of synagogues in Madison and Waukesha, Wisconsin, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and the establishment of the Milwaukee Round Table of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, the Milwaukee Jewish Council, the Wisconsin Society for Jewish Learning, the Wisconsin Jewish Archives, and the Department of Hebrew Studies at the University of Wisconsin. Baron's skill as an author and editor is also reflected in the collection; among his many publications are five books: "Death in Jewish Folk Religion" (1932), "In Quest of Integrity" (1936), "Candles in the Night" (1940), "Stars and Sand" (1943), and "A Treasury of Jewish Quotations" (1956).
The collection consists of seven major series: correspondence; diaries, minutes, proceedings; literary productions; subject files; miscellany; biographical material; scrapbook material; and photographs. The largest, the correspondence series, spans the years 1910 to 1960 and includes correspondence with such luminaries as Archibald MacLeish, Sinclair Lewis, Carl Van Doren, Clifford Morehouse, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Rabbi David de Sola Pool, Louis Marshall, and Judge Charles L. Aarons. Photographs include portraits of religious school classes, a portrait of Baron, and images of World War II refugees.
