The St Joseph Orphanage (Orphan Asylum) located at 3249 S 18th Street. It was run by the Felician Sisters. After the orphanage closed, South Day Care Center of St. Joseph was located at the site. The building was razed to make room for a parking lot.
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee acquired the collection through the Assistance of Polanki, the Polish Women's Club of Milwaukee; and Roman Kwasniewski's daughter, Adele, and her husband, John Kaczmarowski. Representative Walter Kunicki and Senator John Plewa secured state funding for the processing of the collection.
