Abstract:
Papers, 1944-1983, of James A. Zellner, a Southern Methodist minister, civil rights advocate, and member of the Board of the Southern Conference Educational Fund (SCEF). Reverend Zellner served as a minister in the Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church from 1941 until his retirement in the 1970s. The papers document Zellner's career, support for racial integration, and his role in the civil rights struggle, mainly through writings and correspondence, from 1961 to 1971. It also documents early protest activities and the imprisonment of his son and civil rights activist, Bob Zellner.
