Organization File, 1901-1999 (continued)
BOX L15-L20 Related and Affiliate Organizations, 1952-1993
The Related and Affiliate Organizations material documents some of the activities of organizations that operated peripherally to the National Consumers' League, including the National Coalition for Consumer Education (NCCE), the National Consumers Committee for Research and Education (NCCRE), the National Consumers Congress (NCC), and the National Consumer Resource Center (NCRC). The materials relating to the NCC make up the bulk of the sub-subseries and include a variety of materials related to that organization's projects and administration, including documentation of NCC's merger with the National Consumers' League in 1977. The documentation of the other organizations is primarily financial in nature, although some project files can be found in relation to the NCCRE.

Material types include correspondence, financial statements, meeting agendas and minutes, press, reports, and tax forms.
