Biographical Note

Jan Kowalik was born on August 28, 1910, in Skoczowie, Poland. His birth name was Jan Franciszek Slawiczek, but he was most often known by his pseudonym, Kowalik, or as Jan Franciszek Suchy or Jan Pokrzywa. He is known as a writer, bibliographer, and a poet of the post-World War II era.
Kowalik received his higher education first in the city of Cieszyn, and later in Bielsko-Biała. In 1931 he started working as a teacher in the external studies program at Jagiellonian University. When World War II began, he worked for the resistance movement. In 1944 he was arrested and imprisoned in Germany at a concentration camp in Wrexen.
After the camp’s liberation Kowalik spent a year working as a teacher in a refugee camp in Landau-Waldeck. He then spent the next three years in a tuberculosis sanatorium in Steinatal, first as a patient, and later as an administrator. While working as an administrator at the sanatorium he was also working as a teacher in the hospital’s school and later as a commanding officer at the displaced persons camp in Landau. After Landau, Kowalik worked in the archives of the Sekcja Obozów Koncentracyjnych w Międzynarodowej Komisji Poszukiwań (ITS) in Arolsen, while at the same time nurturing his love for writing and Polish publications. While with ITS, he collaborated on various publications: Kronika, Ostatnie Wiadomości, Słowo Katolickie, and Szlak. He also founded and was the editor of a weekly publication, Polak w Waldeck, which he put out while working as the commanding officer at the displaced persons camp. While in Germany, Kowalik continued his work as a journalist, writer, and poet. His poems were published in two volumes, Ścieżka przez Steinatal, in 1947, and Wiatr w Gałęziach, in 1948.
In 1950, Kowalik moved to the United States, where for two years he worked a series of odd jobs: security guard, window cleaner, night janitor at a cinema, and dishwasher at a restaurant. For three years he worked in the Hoover Library at Stanford University and later resumed his work in the labor force. He dedicated his spare time to his bibliographic work by starting the American-Polish Documentation Studio in California, where his primary work revolved around documenting the historical and bibliographical work of the Polish diaspora, specifically the émigré press. During that time Kowalik also published a great deal. His articles appeared in Kultura, Wiadomości, Oficyna Poetów, Ostatnie Wiadomości, Przegląd Polski, Głos Polski, Prąd, and Związkowiec.
In 1968, Kowalik received an award from the Alfred Jurzkowski Foundation, as well as the Gold Cross of Merit from the Polish President in exile, August Zalewski, for his contributions to Polish history, education, and literature. In 1986 in London, President Edward Raczyński bestowed upon him the medal of the Order of Polonia Restituta, and in 1993 the consul general of Poland in Los Angeles, Jan Szewc, presented him with the medal of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland.
Jan Kowalik died on February 11, 2001 in San Jose, California.
