Lucile Montgomery Papers, 1963-1967

Scope and Content Note

The bulk of this collection are microfilmed files but also present is one folder of paper documents and eight tape recordings. The microfilmed files consist of correspondence, Mrs. Montgomery's notes, circulars, news releases, project plans, and reports that she has accumulated during the past three years of activity in the Civil Rights movement. Although the inclusive dates are from 1963 to 1966, by far the largest number of items date from 1964 and 1965.

The following list of microfilmed files represents folder titles used by Mrs. Montgomery or her secretary. The filmed material is in this order. Mrs. Montgomery's general correspondence (#30 on the list) has been organized chronologically. The materials relating to Highlander Center (#7 and 8) and to SNCC (#44-54) are arranged by months. Because all other folders each contain such a small amount, sometimes not dated, no attempt has been made to organize their contents. Some correspondence may be found in folders that are not necessarily marked “correspondence.”
