Correspondence, 1964 - 1976

 Series

Scope and Contents

This series documents the work of Chambers and his colleagues, particularly of the Legal Defense Fund (LDF), in researching, planning, and conducting the pleading of Swann and provides insight into the issues as discussed in the planning stages. Subjects covered include discrimination in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools and elsewhere, affirmative action programs, student transportation and busing, use of federal monies in the school system, and other school desegregation cases, particularly those supported by the Legal Defense Fund. A portion of the correspondence consists of letters from the public, including hate mail and letters of praise, and of routine letters concerning the gathering and presenting of evidence in court.
