Charles A. and Roena L. Haynie Papers, 1963-1965

Scope and Content Note

The collection includes papers written by Haynie, such as project reports, published articles, and handwritten notebooks; and correspondence and memos written by both Charles and Roena Haynie, describing their work. Information on voter registration, the elections of August and November 1964, and irregularities in the balloting may be found in folders of affidavits, election reports, complaints, and statistics, and political leaflets and flyers. There are a few papers of the League, as well as copies of many newspaper articles regarding the situation in Fayette County, some of which were printed in the Cornell University student newspaper. There is also a folder of miscellany. The three tapes were apparently made by Haynie, and consist of interviews with local residents and participants in the League's projects. On Reel 1 several persons describe the Monday March and other events which occurred during the summer of 1963. Reel 2 consists of recorded talks, reports, songs, and chants from a mass meeting held August 12, 1963, and Reel 3 contains further interviews with local residents.
