Abstract:

Records of the North Carolina Fund, primarily the files of the central office staff, especially Executive Director George Hyndman Esser (1921- ), and records of the Manpower Improvement Through Community Effort (MITCE) program. Among the programs documented are the North Carolina Volunteers; training of community action technicians to work in North Carolina and Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA); a summer internship and curriculum development program; and research on poverty in North Carolina, community problems in areas served by community action programs, the community action process, and manpower and economic development. Also documented are programs funded by the North Carolina Fund, chief among them the 11 community action agencies and the projects they operated. Two grassroots organizations of poor people also received financial support from the North Carolina Fund, as did programs to improve education in North Carolina, manpower programs, and low-income housing programs. Records related to attacks on the North Carolina Fund's programs shed light on politics and race relations, as well as on economic and social conditions in North Carolina in the 1960s. Note that there are separate catalog records for the Administrative Series; the Volunteer Programs Series; the Training Programs Series; the 11 Community Action Programs; the Manpower Programs Series; the Research Department Series; the Study Committee Series; and the Public Information Department Series.
