In 1930, a group of members of the Zwanitz-Podolier Br. 277 Workmen's Circle broke away to join the IWO as its Branch 277. This branch merged with another Workmen's Circle branch to form the Podolier Br. 277 I.W.O., later affiliated with yet another branch, renaming itself the Baltic Podolier Br. 277 IWO.  Was affiliated with the Emma Lazarus Club #277 IWO.
