BOX 176-264 Legal Case File, 1915-1967
Records of NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund litigation, including correspondence, memoranda, notes, newspaper clippings, printed matter, briefs of cases, petitions, writs, affidavits, depositions, exhibits, legal memoranda, resolutions, orders, judgments, and trial or hearing transcripts.
Arranged alphabetically by case name. A partial card index to cases, 1956-1964, is filled at the beginning of the series. Cases with multiple folders are further organized by general record type: correspondence, background material, legal documents, printed case records, and related case material for records of a lower court, counter actions, and test cases. A parenthetical note after each case name indicates the type of case (e.g., criminal law, education, housing) and the state in which the litigation took place. For category descriptions and a list of cases by category and state, see the index.
