A Golden Book
During the Great War, 1914-1918, Poles in Utica, N.Y. worked tirelessly in support of the war, war relief and the re-establishment of Poland as an independent nation. Złota księga, czyli Pięć lat pracy dla Polski w Utica, N.Y. (A Golden Book, or Five years of work for Poland in Utica, N.Y.) published in 1919, celebrates these efforts and recognizes the countless people, both foreign- and native-born who contributed to them.
The book has 80 pages of text and copious photos; most text is in Polish, with some in English. Thumbnail display allows for scrolling to any of the pages.
The PDF can be downloaded for free and saved to your computer. The process takes about 4 minutes or less depending on your computer speed. Some personal names are searchable within the PDF but many of the group photos carry no names. If you can identify people in the group photos please send names and page numbers to Patricia Yocum at firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in rosters she is compiling.
The work in Utica was emblematic of Poles' efforts across the U.S. during World War I. If you know of other cities which recorded their efforts in publications Patricia would like to hear from you.
