Miscellaneous records created or compiled by Hart concerning the desegregation of the Milwaukee Public School (MPS) system. Most of the collection contains Hart's files on the Committee of 100, an advisory group to the MPS Board of Directors, and represented the community in the preparations of plans for alternative schools and integration. Hart's files, largely organized chronologically, concern the meetings and policies of the Human Relations Subcommitee, of which she was chair, and the South Division High School cluster. The records also include Hart's copy of the 1977 Monitoring Handbook issued by federally appointed Special Master John A. Gronouski and a file on the People United for Integration and Quality Education.
