Our 182nd online finding aid, for the small collection of the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) now available. The AOH is a Catholic, Irish-American fraternal organization founded in New York City in 1836. It remains active today aiding newly arrived Irish immigrants, both socially and politically, and is at the forefront of issues such as immigration reform, economic incentives, human rights, right to life, and peace in Ireland. Records include membership flyers, event programs, issues of the National Hibernian Digest, digital photographs, as well as completed membership applications, notebooks, and account ledgers for the Ladies’ Auxiliary to the Ancient Order of Hibernians. Thanks to Paul Kelly for his work in organizing this collection.
