The papers do little, however, to illuminate the decisions and policies formulated by staff members.
National Urban Coalition (U.S.) Title: National Urban Coalition Records, 1908-1971
Quantity: 22.8 c.f. (22 record center cartons and 2 archives boxes) and 0.4 c.f. of photographs (1 archives box)
Call Number: Mss 562; PH 6695
Abstract: Records, 1908-1909 and 1920-1971, of the National Urban Coalition (NUC), a national organization established in 1970 to combat the major urban problems which gained widespread attention during the urban turmoil of the late 1960s -- housing, jobs and economic development, equal opportunities, health, education, and law and government reform. The collection includes relatively few records of the National Urban Coalition itself; rather it primarily documents its five predecessor organizations: American Planning and Civic Association (records, 1908-1909, 1920-1964), ACTION Inc. (1953-1966), States Urban Action Center (1967-1971), Urban America Inc. (1964-1970), and the Urban Coalition (1968-1970).
Naujoks, Herbert H., 1902-1961 Title: Herbert H. Naujoks Papers, 1925-1960
Quantity: 4.0 c.f. (10 archives boxes)
Call Number: Mss 261
Abstract: Papers of Herbert H. Naujoks, legal counsel and president of the Great Lakes Harbors Association and an authority on Chicago water diversion litigation. Most date from 1951 to 1960 and many concern Naujoks' role in opposing increased diversion of Lake Michigan waters by the Chicago Metropolitan Sanitary District, on behalf of the Great Lakes Harbors Association and as Special Assistant to the Attorneys General of Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The papers also reflect efforts to win Congressional approval for the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Waterway and Power Project, and to further the development of Great Lakes local harbors. Other segments deal with other Great Lakes topics and Great Lakes Harbors Association business. The collection includes only a small amount of material related to Naujoks' work as a lawyer and businessman.
