History

The American Service Institute was founded in 1941 as a result of research published by Philip Klein and collaborators entitled A Social Study of Pittsburgh: Community Problems and Social Services of Allegheny County. The study recommended that an advisory agency be formed to act as an interpreter between existing social and civic agencies. The American Service Institute (ASI) was formed from the combination of 3 organizations the, International Institute of Pittsburgh, International Institute of McKeesport and the American Citizenship League. The organizations focused on a combination of naturalization procedures for individuals as well as community related group work.

The ASI was a product of the three earlier organizations with the stated purpose, "to assist in the ethnic, cultural and economic assimilation into the community of new Americans residing in Allegheny County; to encourage their participation in community life, as individuals or as groups; to cooperate with individuals and with nationality organizations in relating themselves to public and private social and civic agencies; and to give technical assistance to residents of Allegheny County who desire to become naturalized citizens of the United States." To fulfill these objectives, ASI worked through the organized structure of the community (i.e., social agencies, schools, churches, civic groups) to promote better understanding and appreciation among people of all cultural and national backgrounds, as well as encourage fuller participation in community life.

The organization was supported almost solely by the Community Chest of Allegheny County, only a fraction of the ASI budget came from fees for services. ASI did not intend for itself to be an agency that provided individual service, but in their first year they assisted 1,140 people with the naturalization process. After those initial months government funds for naturalization programs made it possible to lessen the number of individual cases for which ASI was responsible.

In 1960 a study was requested by the Community Chest of Allegheny County and the Allegheny County Health and Welfare Association to assess the role of the American Service Institute. As a result of the study the ASI was asked to terminate its services to the community and its contract with the Community Chest expired on December 31, 1961. All active immigration and naturalization case files were transferred to the Community Chest Information Services, which later became part of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the United Way.

Series  IV. Individual and Family Case Files 

Scope and Content Notes

Series IV contains individual case files and has been divided into five sub-series. The first sub-series contains an alphabetical listing of individuals' cases that were closed prior to 1953 -- these deal primarily with citizenship status. Many of these case files provide some detailed narrative of an individual's need for assistance, often to avoid deportation. Similar to the first, the second sub-series contains individuals' case files, although these cases were never considered "closed" and they typically do not contain as much detail. The third sub-series consists of requests for service that did not result in a full case file for 1941-1952. The fourth and fifth sub-series are cases labeled 'McKeesport Records' and 'Pittsburgh Records.' They are similar in nature to the first sub-series but were filed at the two separate office, one in McKeesport the other in Pittsburgh.

Series  VIII. Map and Statistics Binders 

Scope and Content Notes

Series VIII includes four ring binders that contain maps, transparency overlays, statistics sheets, typed and handwritten cultural information sheets, and newsletter and newspaper excerpts. The maps show population breakdowns in Pittsburgh neighborhoods arranged by nationality, income, age, and race. The clippings from newsletters and newspapers, typed commentary, and statistics explain the maps in greater detail and discuss how to integrate immigrants into American society. There is also information about community councils, neighborhood profiles, and local education, housing, health, religion and crime rates. All of this information centers on data from the 1940s and 1950s, and most is culled from the census. Texts of studies, reports, and presentations from both outside sources and the ASI, as well as copies of ASI press releases and letters, complement the maps and statistics.
