Papers of Helen I. Barnhill, the executive secretary of the Milwaukee Citizens for Equal Opportunity (MCEO). Mrs. Barnhill was also editor of the MCEO Newsletter, active in the organization's housing referral service, and worked with the allied Milwaukee United School Integration Committee (MUSIC). The MCEO was part of the Foundation for Freedom and Democracy in Community Life, an Illinois-based group which also included the United Citizens' Committee for Freedom of Residence of Evanston, Illinois. The collection consists of printed flyers, memos, and other material of the MCEO, and its parent organization; correspondence received by Mrs. Barnhill and pertaining to equal opportunities and housing; and school curricula and schedules for a “Freedom Day School,” to be held in Milwaukee on May 18, 1964. A few housing referral cards and a folder of fragmentary papers from other community groups are also present. Much of the collection consists of printed material.
