This unprocessed accession of administrative records documents the operations, fund raising activities, programs, and publications of the Durham based service organization between 1955 and 1973, chiefly 1967-1973. The collection is open for research.
The Edgemont Community Center was incorporated in 1941 in Durham, NC, as an autonomous, service oriented center located in a low-income white neighborhood beset by numerous social problems. The center came to serve a more racially mixed population in later years.
