REMENYI, Cleveland, Ohio
« on: Tuesday 01 February 05 13:05 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I am trying to find out more information about my Great-Uncle Joseph Remenyi   and in particular, when he came to America,

I have records for him at Ellis Island in 1922 and 1923, but one source says he came to America in 1914.

He lived in Cleveland, Ohio and was a professor at the University there.

I have put all I know so far on my web-site
http://www.margulies-chronicles.com/ag/_margulies/bio/remejose1892.php

Would it be possible for SKS to look for him on the 1920 and 1930 censuses, and let me know any details there.

Another thought, are naturalization records accessable online, and if so, where could I look ?

Thanks in advance,
Bob

Hi Iria,

Many thanks for the quick reply, but I don't think it is him, he was definitely born in Europe, and almost certainly Hungary. 

He was quite famous / well-known as a Professor of Philosophy at Cleveland University, so maybe he was on holiday when the census was taken  :)

Second thoughts:  he's playing games with the census taker ??  The date of birth I have is 1892. Do you have his wife's name anywhere ? It should be Margaret,  and they had no children.

Thanks again,
Bob

Hi Valerie,

Many thanks for the look-up. 

It's very tantalising, the age is right, but .....

This source  http://www.margulies-chronicles.com/ag/_margulies/img/remejose1892-mem2.jpg says he came to the States in 1914, and my Aunt say, her Uncle came to the States "in the early twenties", and certainly not with parents. They had three other children, who were all in Europe !

Maybe she meant "in his early twenties" (in 1914 he would be 22 years old)

I don't know what he was doing in 1920, but in 1929 he was a lecturer at Western Reserve University, Cleveland, ending up as professor.

Thanks again,
Bob

REMENYI, JOSEPH (1 Dec. 1892-25 Sept. 1956) was a widely recognized Hungarian-American writer who served as professor of comparative literature at Western Reserve Univ. (see CASE WESTERN RESERVE UNIVERSITY) for a quarter-century. Born in Pozsony, Hungary, he was educated at Francis Joseph Royal Univ. in Szeged and also studies at the Universities of Budapest and Vienna. He worked for several European newspapers before emigrating to Cleveland in 1914 to become an editorial writer for the Hungarian-language daily, SZABADSAG. In 1918 he married Margaret Papolczy (1892-1975), a Hungarian-born actress who thereupon gave up the stage except for an appearance later that year in a one-act play written by her husband for the CLEVELAND PLAY HOUSE. Entitled 30 Jefferson Arcade, its setting was reminiscent of LAUKHUFF'S BOOKSTORE in the Taylor Arcade. Remenyi also began writing novels about the Hungarian-American immigrant experience, which were published in Hungarian back in Budapest. Some of them, such as Szerelmesek Voitak (They Were in Love), had a Cleveland background. He was hired by RAYMOND MOLEY† in 1922 to conduct social surveys for the CLEVELAND FOUNDATION and also was an immigration consultant for Cleveland Trust (see AMERITRUST). He began teaching in 1929 at WRU's Cleveland College, where his lectures on European writers often earned spontaneous applause from his classes. In 1935 he published an anthology of American authors, Modern American Fiction, in Budapest, while a collection of his own writings, Hungarian Writers and Literature, was published posthumously in this country under the direction of his widow in 1964. He died childless.
