Guide to the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina Records, 1960-2011 and undated

Abstract

North Carolina affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union, founded in 1969 and based in Raleigh.

The records of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina (ACLU of N.C.) date from the 1960s to the mid-2000s. The collection is organized into the following series: ACLU Historical Files, Executive Director Files, Legal Program, Audiovisual Material, and Print Material. The files primarily focus on the investigation and prosecution of cases related to civil rights, public education relating to civil liberties, and lobbying for civil liberties and human rights. Materials include correspondence files from the Excecutive Director's office and other units in the ACLU of N.C., thousands of case files; administrative files on cases, operations, and attorney's activities; lobbying and subject files; and printed matter and other records relating to outreach and public education activities. There are also some a/v materials and electronic files. Topics include: the civil rights and legal status of legally under-represented groups such as juveniles and high school students, prisoners, gays, and immigrants; education and academic freedoms; religious freedom and separation of church and state; freedom of expression (including desecration of the flag); racial inequalities and injustices; reproductive rights; women's rights; police misconduct and the legality of search procedures; drug testing and the decriminalization of drugs; voting rights, including issues surrounding reapportionment; and workers' rights, including unionization. There are also files on the Ku Klux Klan, Confederate displays, and right-wing organizations. Many of these issues span decades of ACLU involvement. Researchers consulting case files and any other materials should be aware of privacy laws that govern the publication and use of these records. Acquired as part of the Human Rights Archive at Duke University.

Collection Overview

The records of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina (ACLU of NC) span forty years, from its inception in the early 1960s to its activities in the mid-2000s. The files provide documentation on nearly all aspects of the organization's operations, primarily focusing on the investigation of cases related to civil rights and many related issues, the legal prosecution of cases, public education relating to civil liberties, and lobbying for civil liberties and human rights. Materials include correspondence files from the Excecutive Director's office and other units in the ACLU of NC, beginning from the earliest years; thousands of case files dating from 1969 through the mid-2000s; the legal assistant's files on cases, operations, and attorney's activities; lobbying and subject files; and printed matter and other records relating to the ACLU-NC's outreach and public education activities. There are also some slides related to arts cases, videocassette and audiocassette recordings, and electronic files. Commonly recurring social and legal issues to which the ACLU of NC dedicated its efforts and resources include but are not limited to: the civil rights and legal status of legally under-represented groups such as juveniles and high school students, prisoners, gays, and immigrants; education and academic freedoms; religious freedom and separation of church and state; freedom of expression (including desecration of the flag); racial inequalities and injustices; reproductive rights; women's rights; police misconduct and the legality of search procedures; drug testing and the decriminalization of drugs; voting rights, including issues surrounding reapportionment; and workers' rights, including unionization. There are also many files on the Ku Klux Klan, Confederate displays, and right-wing organizations in NC

The collection is open to use. However, researchers consulting case files and any other materials in this collection should be aware of privacy laws that govern the publication and use of these records, especially in the case of third party information. Most personal names have been removed from case file titles in this web-accessible collection guide. The full version is available only to on-site researchers.

The Legal Program Series, the largest series in the collection at 260 boxes, chiefly consists of court case and other investigations files, and were created and maintained by the branch of the ACLU of NC called the North Carolina Legal Foundation. The files were marked variously as coming from the Office of the Legal Counsel or the Legal Program. These files were kept in their original order, which was generally chronological, though there are many overlapping series and fragmented sequences, some of which are alphabetical. When possible, the nature of the case or investigation is noted in a few words for each entry; keyword searching is the best means to discover names or topics (e.g., "parental consent," "prayer," "1st Amendment," "employee," "free speech," etc.).

Files in the Executive Director Office Series (90 boxes) refer to meetings, annual ACLU national conferences, litigation and political action strategizing, fundraising, and membership, and contain many individual legislative and court case files maintained by the Executive Director's Office (who at times in the ACLU of NC's history also served as the Legal Director). Extensive research and "issues" files, as they were often called, found both in the Legal Program and Executive Office Series, were most often used to support the case and investigative work, and therefore cover topics similar to the case files. Other subject files reflect the Executive Director's efforts to learn about issues relating to other affiliates of the ACLU.

Smaller but significant components of the collection include the Audiovisual Material Series, housing videocassettes and audio recordings, and the Print Material Series, which houses publications, clippings, reports, and other print material created by the ACLU of NC as well as material from other organizations. A nearly complete run of the ACLU of NC's newsletter, Liberty, can be found here, as well as multiple issues from such publications as Prison Law Monitor, Veteran's Advocate, and Youth Law News. Other publications are filed by topic. Many press releases, clippings, and files related to media relations are found in the Executive Director Office Series, and to a lesser extent in the Legal Program Series.

Researchers interested in the earliest history of the ACLU of NC should consult the small Historical Files Series which contains a 1970 history of the organization written by Daniel Pollitt and George Scheer, as well as copies of the original founding documents of incorporation, board and legal foundation meeting minutes from the 1960s to the 1980s, and other files. More complete files of early correspondence, meetings, and legal cases dating from the 1960s and 1970s can be found in other series.

Acquired as part of the Human Rights Archive at Duke University.

Contents of the Collection

Smallest series includes photocopies of original incorporation papers, by-laws, a history of the NCCLU written by Daniel Pollitt and George Scheer in 1970, and other documents relating to the organization's earliest years of formation, when it was known as the NCCLU. Filed in the front of the folder is a list of Executive Directors with term years, and other key individuals in the organization. Additional early records from the 1960s and 1970s can be found in the other main series.

Historical files
Box 1-1A

Arranged in the following groupings: chronological subseries by decade relating to Executive Directors in office during that period, beginning with the 1970s; followed by the Board of Trustees Subseries; and last, the Publicity and Media Subseries. The original chronological groupings, some arranged internally in alphabetical order, were maintained by Executive Office staff and chiefly consisted of administrative files, correspondence files, requests for legal assistance (including rejections), and subject folders used for personal research and development, or in direct support of accepted cases. The presence of case files is explained partly by the fact that for some time the Executive Director functioned simultaneously as the Legal Director; later on, these two positions were again separate administrative functions, after which most of the case files were maintained by the Office of Legal Counsel, or the Legal Program, as it became known. See also the Legal Program Series for related case files.

The largest subcategory in the Executive Office Series, this subseries chiefly comprises files assembled and maintained during the tenure of Deborah Ross, the ACLU of NC's Executive Director during the 1990s, for some time also serving as Legal Director. Subdivided into Board Meetings and Issues Files, loosely according to the original Executive office's filing subdivisions.

Researchers should be aware that privacy laws govern the use or publication of information in these files.

Minutes and agendas of ACLU of NC Executive Board meetings and Legal Foundation Board meetings, often mixed in one folder. Files usually contain many other materials relating to meeting agendas, including national office memos, reports, board guidelines and bylaws, requests for legal aid, testimony, and correspondence. Very often there are multiple meetings represented in one folder. Several of the board meetings are retreats, and several are from the annual board meetings, held in the spring. Meetings were held in cities such as Durham, Greensboro, and Chapel Hill. Some active Legal Foundation Board meeting participants are Robert M. Elliot (President, Newman, and Simpson (most documents only specify last name), and active Board of Director meeting participants are Moore, Newman, and Jim Fuller.

The Legal Foundation Board meetings discuss fundraising, organizational growth, and progress on cases. Cases include the repeal of the NC Crimes Against Nature Statute (lesbian and gay issues) and the display of the Confederate flag (free speech issues). The Board of Directors meetings discussed budgeting, fundraising, personnel policies, and what cases to accept or reject. Proposed cases include issues of religious instruction in public schools, search warrants for an entire block, picketing the neighborhood and home of an abortion practitioner, educational equality, the War on Drugs, and AIDS. Arranged in chronological order. Other Legal Committee meeting files can be located in the Legal Program Series.

Researchers should be aware that privacy laws govern the use or publication of information in these files.

Identified as subject files assembled by Deborah Ross, the Executive Director during most of the 1990s, or by her assistants. Subjects range widely, with some folders containing material dating back to 1965, though most date between the late 1980s to the late 1990s. A large section (beginning at Box 83) consists of media files - clippings and news releases on particular subjects, in addition to files on the ACLU of NC's media relations guides and files). These resource files were used heavily in support of NCCLU activities, including the legal work with which Ross was involved - for a time she was also Legal Director. Arranged in original groupings as received: some in no apparent organizational order, others are in alphabetical arrangements (for example, beginning with Box 73).

The largest series in the collection comprises all administrative and case files assembled and maintained by staff affiliated with the ACLU of NC's legal arm, beginning from its earliest years of formation in the late 1960s, through the mid-2000s. Arranged in the following subseries, described more fully below: General Counsel Office (64 boxes); Case Files (128 boxes); Legal Committee (8 boxes); and Paralegal Files (60 boxes).

To find specific content over many decades of files, keyword search strategies may prove useful; each case or subject folder typically uses key words to describe case or topic (e.g., prayer in school, discrimination, 1st Amendment, prisoners' rights, etc.). Several searches using different terms work best. A reference archivist is available for assistance.

Personal names have been removed from many case file titles in this public, web-accessible collection guide. A full version is available to on site researchers from the library's paper collection files; also, names are present on folder titles in boxes. Researchers should be aware that privacy laws govern the use or publication of information in these files.

These earliest files were administered by the North Carolina Legal Foundation, the branch of the ACLU of NC that handled all litigation and legal investigations. The records belong chiefly to Norman B. Smith, General Counsel (later known as Legal Director), mixed in with other early legal directors (who often served at the same time as Executive Director). In addition to case files, to which the majority belong or are related, there are also administrative files, correspondence, conference files, and files on programs such as summer internships. In original alphabetical arrangements, or in order as received. Subdivided into these groupings: General Files, 1971-1974; Cases Closed, 1968-1974; Requests for Assistance, 1968-1973; General Counsel Prisoners' Rights Project, 1974-1975; and Cases Closed, 1975-1980.

Researchers should be aware that privacy laws govern the use or publication of information in these files. As with other legal files, the names of the defendants and others in many cases have been redacted from this collection guide but are present on folder titles in the boxes.

Large series of ACLU of NC files dating from the 1970s to the 2000s, relating to cases that were either taken to court or settled out of court. There are also investigative files involving cases completely out of the court system. Files contain requests for assistance, rejections by the ACLU-NC, or materials relating to the eventual pursuit of cases. Some of the legal cases span many file folders; Claudio v. USA, involving an artist's right to display nude art, is the largest group. Roughly arranged in chronological order by decade.

Researchers should be aware that privacy laws govern the use or publication of information in these files. As with other legal files, the names of the defendants and others have been redacted from this collection guide but are present on folder titles in the boxes.
