Mr. Jablonower began teaching in the New York Public School System in 1910. The trial of three New York teachers (1917-18) led Mr. Jablonower to join other teachers founding the New York City Teachers Union, associated with the New York Teachers Guild and the American Federation of Teachers. His papers include correspondence, speeches, clippings, and other materials on his appointment to the Board of Examiners (1938); the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture; his aid to European refugees, and his receiving the Linville Award (1959). Other important subjects covered include communism in teachers' unions, DeWitt Clinton case, 1960 New York teachers strike, progressive education, and the United Federation of Teachers. Among the correspondents are Charles Cogen, Jacob Greenberg, and Arthur Levitt.
