After his arrival to the U.S. and first years in New York, Kazimierz Żychliński moved to Chicago where he became involved in the Falcons movement and co-created the Polish Falcons Alliance in America. He was the president of the organization between 1894 and 1899. In the twentieth century he started a career as an officer in the Polish National Alliance, and in 1912 he was elected the president of PNA. He served on this post until his death in 1927. Thus, Żychliński became one of the most prominent figures of American Polonia and had an impact on Polonia politics. The article quotes his various statements and comments on the relations between the Polish diaspora and the II Polish Republic, aid for Poland, Polish-Jewish relations in America, and Polonia's internal politics, particularly from the period 1918-1922.
