Biographical Note

Florian Witold Znaniecki (1882--1958) was born in Swiatniki, Poland, of mixed French, Prussian, Saxon, and Polish ancestry. His early education by a tutor and in the Czestochowa Gymnasium was supplemented by extensive private reading in Spanish and English poetry. In 1903 the young Znaniecki published a book of poetry entitled Cheops. After being expelled from the University of Warsaw that same year for participation in a student movement considered threatening by the Russian authorities, he traveled widely in Switzerland, France, and Italy, served as the editor of Nice Illustre, and enlisted briefly in the French Foreign Legion. In 1905, he resumed his education at the University of Geneva (M.A., 1907), the University of Zurich, the Sorbonne, and at the University of Cracow, where he received a Ph.D. in 1909 for his thesis, "The Problem of Values in Philosophy."

Prevented by his political record from obtaining an academic appointment at any Polish university, Znaniecki accepted a position as director of the Polish Emigrants' Protective Association in Warsaw and became increasingly absorbed in questions of a sociological character. When W. I. Thomas, on a trip to Europe in 1913, casually suggested that Znaniecki come to the University of Chicago and assist him with research on Polish immigration to America, Znaniecki seized the opportunity to leave the Association and devote himself to his new field of interest (departing on the last train to leave Poland before World War I). Arriving in Chicago in 1914, Znaniecki collaborated with W. I. Thomas, a Professor of Sociology at the University, on the investigation that resulted in the publication of The Polish Peasant in Europe and America in five volumes from 1918 to 1920. Through the intervention of Thomas, Znaniecki was also appointed Lecturer on Polish history and Institutions in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology in 1917. Their intellectual partnership came to an abrupt end, however, when Thomas was dismissed from the University in 1918 under a cloud of personal scandal, and Znaniecki was dropped from the faculty a year later for budgetary reasons despite Albion Small's efforts to save his position.

While in Chicago, the widowed Znaniecki met and married Eileen Markley, a lawyer from Connecticut. She was trained at the University of Chicago and held degrees from Smith College and Columbia University. He piqued her interest in sociology and she assisted with The Polish Peasant as well as the rest of Znaniecki’s later works.

In 1920, Znaniecki returned to a newly-independent Poland to become a professor of sociology at the University of Poznan. While at Poznan, he played a crucial role in training the first generation of Polish sociologists and was a leader in the development of sociology as a profession in Poland. With the help of his students, he founded the Polish Sociological Institute (1922) and Polish Sociological Review (1929), and served as president of the Polish Sociological Society (1929-1940). From 1932 to 1934, Znaniecki undertook research on American education with George S. Counts and Edmund Brunner as a visiting professor at Columbia University.

He was at Columbia once again during the summer of 1939 when the German invasion of Poland brought the beginning of World War II. Forced to abandon his attempt to reenter Poland when his name was found on a list of Polish intellectuals slated for execution by the Germans, Znaniecki returned to New York as the Julius Beer lecturer at Columbia (1939--1940) before accepting a position as visiting professor (1940) and later professor (1941) of sociology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Znaniecki was soon joined by his wife and daughter, who had been held briefly in a concentration camp in Poland. His son from his first marriage, the poet and novelist Julius Znaniecki, was unable to leave Poland. Julius took part in the Polish underground and the Warsaw uprising, and was sent to Dachau when captured by the Nazis. Released two years later by American forces, Julius then reunited with his family in the United States.

Znaniecki remained at the University of Illinois until his retirement in 1950. In 1953, Znaniecki was elected president of the American Sociological Society. He died in 1958 while in the midst of his work on Systematic Sociology, published posthumously under the title Social Relations and Social Roles: The Unfinished Systematic Sociology (1965).

Znaniecki's writing, whether in Polish or English, stressed his conception of sociology as a discipline distinct from either the natural sciences or psychology, as a highly specific study of social systems that described actions from the participant's as much as the investigator's point of view. Znaniecki repeatedly questioned the utility of statistical methodology and insisted on the importance of such subjective data as autobiographies, diaries, letters, and the personal experience of the observer. Drawing heavily on his early studies in philosophy, Znaniecki constructed a sociology that disdained the formation of a behavioral science of society and sought meaning instead in the actions and relations of the cultural element he designated "the humanistic coefficient."

Scope Note

The Papers of Florian Znaniecki are divided into six series.

Series I. Personal and Biographical

The first series of the collection consists of assorted material describing Florian Znaniecki's life and career. Included are autobiographical and biographical essays, bibliographies of Znaniecki's work, and tributes by friends and colleagues. The series also contains Znaniecki’s personal documents related to his involvement with various Polish-American and academic organizations, as well as his time at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A number of book reviews and press clippings are also included. The series further contains photocopied reference documents from the Florian Znaniecki archive in Bielefeld, Germany.

Series II. Family

The second series contains the personal documents and correspondence of Znaniecki’s wife, Eileen Markley Znaniecki; and his daughter, Helena Znaniecki Lopata. Lopata, herself a sociologist, facilitated the posthumous publication of her father’s works, Social Relations and Social Roles: The Unfinished Systematic Sociology (1965) and The Social Role of the University Student (1994). She also wrote the introductions to both texts. The series additionally contains Znaniecki’s correspondence with Julius (Julek) Znaniecki and Halina (Hala) Znaniecki, his son and daughter-in-law.

Series III. Correspondence

The correspondence in this series is largely incoming and is concentrated in the period 1920-1958. It is predominately in English, but significant portions are written in Polish. It is organized alphabetically by the name of the correspondent (with a few discrete sections alphabetized by subject), and then chronologically. Where noted, photocopies of correspondence from the Bielefeld Archive are included alongside original correspondence.

While most of the letters are routine, a number discuss matters of greater consequence: Znaniecki's letter to Theodore Abel in September 1939 asking for "any job in any college at any salary -- no lower limit whatever in pay, and no highest limit in work;" J. W. Albig's reassuring offer of a position at Illinois three months later; C. Wright Mills' discussion of an agenda for the sociology of knowledge; and Pitirim Sorokin's comments on Znaniecki's Cultural Sciences. Several letters of tribute are also notable: Everett C. Hughes' praise for Modern Nationalities; Albion Small's statement in May 1919 that "if I could have my way you would be a member of the Chicago faculty;" and W. I. Thomas' comment in 1942 that "I was most fortunate in getting you connected with the Polish Peasant and...I like to think that I did you a good turn by getting you over here at the time."

Correspondence related to the Polish Institute of Arts and Sciences in America and other Polish-American social and educational organizations reveals the extent of his involvement in Polish intellectual life and his continuing concern for the well-being of his fellow Polish immigrants in America.

Series IV. Writings

Znaniecki co-authored with W. I. Thomas The Polish Peasant in Europe and America (1918-1920), a five-volume work with a "Methodological Note" that has made it a classic of sociological literature. While the Florian Znaniecki papers contain little that refers specifically to The Polish Peasant, the collection incorporates manuscripts of a number of other important works completed while Znaniecki was professor of sociology at the University of Illinois.

The fourth series is divided into subseries of Znaniecki’s published and unpublished writings. The first subseries contains the final typescript text of Social Relations and Social Roles along with a number of preliminary drafts and notes. Especially important are the drafts of chapters 20-24 which did not appear in the published edition of the book. It also contains the manuscript of The Social Role of the University Student which was compiled in the mid-1940’s as part of a project conducted by Znaniecki and his classes in sociology at the University of Illinois. The University did not adopt the recommendations of the report but the manuscript was published posthumously in 1994. Finally, the subseries includes several articles Znaniecki published on various sociological topics.

His unpublished writings include manuscript and typescript drafts of articles on different topics in sociology; reviews of other scholars’ work; and appraisals of dissertations written by Znaniecki’s graduate students. It also contains the manuscript notes on national cultural groups that Vincente Herrero published in translation as "Las sociedades de cultura nacional y sus relaciones.” (1944) These notes presented an outline of the ideas explored later in Modern Nationalities (1952). Where noted, photocopies of documents from the Bielefeld Archive are included.

Series V. Writings by Others

This series includes articles by other scholars analyzing Znaniecki’s sociological theories, as well as writings concerning other sociological topics. It also contains administrative documents and dissertation digests from Znaniecki’s time at Columbia University, as well as Evan Ames Thomas’s University of Iowa dissertation concerning W. I. Thomas’s work on The Polish Peasant. Where noted, photocopies of documents from the Bielefeld Archive are included.

Series VI. Notes

The notes in this series record Znaniecki’s wide reading in sociology, philosophy, and related fields. His reading notes have been arranged alphabetically by the name of the author of the source. Additional folders contain notes related to various research subjects. Two folders containing bibliographies on sociology compiled by Znaniecki and his students follow them.
