Dawson File, 1948
Collection Description & Creator Information
The records document the administration and issues of the organization from its founding and include correspondence, meeting materials, and publications. The majority of the papers are the correspondence and other files of executive committee members, notably Robert Puckett and Richard Puckett. Other records include the meeting minutes of the Board of Trustees and National Advisory Council, publicity materials and publications, and records related to legal cases, conferences, and other projects.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
Duplicate copies of Church and State were separated from this collection in 2010. No material was separated from the January 2011 accession. A run of Church and State dating from April 2011-May 2013 in the 2015 accession was separated for library cataloging.
These papers were processed with the generous support of the Charl Ormond Williams Trust.
