  • Papers, primarily consisting of scripts and programs from plays, of a Milwaukee Polish American educator and writer. While teaching at Milwaukee high schools, Bolan formed several student Polish clubs, for which he wrote and selected Polish-language plays for presentation; several of the original scripts are in the collection. Also included is a scrapbook of clippings from Polish language newspapers regarding his teaching career in Milwaukee, the activities of the Polish clubs in the Milwaukee area, and reviews of the plays. In addition, there are two hand painted letters of appreciation for clothing sent to Polish school children by the American Red Cross during World War II, miscellaneous Polish travel brochures and literature from the 1930s, and a Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra poster.
