Description More Information
 
The first group of Polish immigrants to come to Chicopee arrived in 1880. These Poles filled many of the manufacturing jobs in the city's two large textile mills. In less than 30 years from their arrival, this aggressive, self-assured group boasted more Polish-owned businesses than any other community in New England. The Polish Community of Chicopee chronicles an immigrant population that was fiercely dedicated to the ideals of free enterprise and democratic pluralism.

Author Bio: With a unique insider's perspective, Stephen R. Jendrysik is able to capture the story of the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of the Polish community of Chicopee. A lifelong resident of Chicopee, he is the chairman of the Chicopee Historical Commission. He retired in 2003, completing a 40-year career in the Chicopee public schools. His grandfather, Zygmunt Jendrysik, emigrated from Galicia to Chicopee 100 years ago.
