A fraternal, cultural, relief, and social organization, the Polish Union of America, Inc. was founded as a result of schism within the Polish National Alliance in the late 1880s, and was led by Father Dominic Majer, a St. Paul, Minn., priest and patriach of Minnesota Polonia. Five lodges were organized in the Twin Cities and one each in Owatonna and Duluth, Minn., but the locus of membership, power,and the office organ Slonce (Sun) shifted eastward by 1900. A series of reorganizations in the next decade led to the formation of the Polish Union of the United States with headquarters in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and the Polish Union of America in Buffalo, N.Y.
