The National Slovak Society was founded in February of 1890 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as a fraternal benevolent association intended to provide a common platform for the numerous small and locally based Slovak fraternal societies scattered in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Minnesota and elsewhere, and to bridge the religious differences among the Slovak American communities at the time.
Collection donated to the IHRC by Arthur Cambridge of Bushkill, Pennsylvania in December 2003.
