The Morris Fromkin Memorial Collection contains over 6,000 volumes on social justice covering the period between the Civil War and World War II. Specific subject areas include labor activism, prison reform, housing, and socialism.
Morris Fromkin, a Milwaukee and New York attorney, was a lifelong friend and supporter of individuals and movements seeking social justice. He devoted much of his time to providing free legal assistance to immigrants, the poor, and the needy. After his death in 1969, his family established a specialized research collection at UWM and a continuing program of research and scholarship that makes a contribution to public understanding.
