Gallamore, David Cohen, Georgia Rathbun, and Nan Waterman; general correspondence; reports of projects and studies; recordings of meetings and testimonies of staff, including Archibald Cox (elected chairman in 1980), before congressional committees; copies of “Letters to the Hill” (1971-1981); state files; and other corporate papers. Also present are the files (1968-1970) of a predecessor organization, the Urban Coalition Action Council. Material is added to the archives as it becomes currently available.
