Guide to the Amber Arthun Warburton Papers, 1917-1976

Collection Overview

The Amber (Arthun) Warburton Papers consist of the personal and professional papers of Warburton from 1917 to 1976. The bulk of the material comes from the organizational files of the Alliance for Guidance of Rural Youth during Warburton's tenure as executive secretary and director of research, 1947-1963. Other organizations and institutions represented include Atlanta University, Brookwood Labor College, Columbia University, Mount Holyoke College, Spelman College, Institute of Social and Religious Research, Southern Summer School for Women Workers in Industry, Affiliated Schools for Workers, the Federal Emergency Relief Administration, and the U.S. Children's Bureau.

The Warburton Papers contain correspondence, financial statements, writings, interviews, notes, drafts of studies and reports, newspaper clippings, newsletters, printed material, books, magazines, photographs, diaries, and scrapbooks. Most of the papers are printed material.

The papers are divided into the following thirteen series:

Warburton's connection with these organizations and institutions is noted in the description of each series.

The largest series is the Alliance for Guidance of Rural Youth Series (AGRY). The series is arranged by subject, in keeping with the arrangement pattern of a 1949 office files index. There are three major subjects within the series: Harlan County (Kentucky), Green Sea (South Carolina), and the National Defense Education Act Study. Each subject contains correspondence, notes, drafts of reports and studies, reports and studies, newspaper clippings, and printed material.

There is overlap among series, especially within the AGRY series. For instance, Warburton might correspond with one person in Green Sea about the Green Sea Institute and later about an upcoming guidance convention. Each letter would probably be found in different subjects: the Green Sea letter under Green Sea Institute, and the convention letter under material about guidance conventions.

The Warburton Papers are a rich source of information on the growth and development of the youth guidance movement in America, especially guidance in rural areas. If combined with the Duke Library's collection of early AGRY papers, a researcher could follow the American rural youth guidance movement from inception to maturation. Furthermore, the numerous surveys conducted in Harlan County and Green Sea contain much material on the socio-economic status and attitudes of people in those communities in the 1940's and 1950's, which may be valuable to the sociologist or historian studying Appalachia or the rural South.

Other highlights include considerable information on the creation, growth, and management of workers' schools and federal training centers for unemployed teachers in the 1930's; in-depth studies of industrial home-work in the Northeast and migrant workers in Texas, Arkansas, and Florida; and excellent pictures of schools, houses, and people in Harlan County and Green Sea. There are also photographs in the Personal, Columbia University, Spelman College and Atlanta University, U.S. Children's Bureau, and Fairfax County series.

Specific subjects are discussed in more detail in the inventory.

Contents of the Collection

This series contains correspondence, writings, printed material, clippings, photographs, and volumes. The correspondence spans most of Warburton's life, but offers few special glimpses into her personal life. Interesting material in this series includes Warburton's employment applications (they provide good descriptions of her many positions), an assortment of articles on labor and unions in the 1920's and 1930's, and a series of articles by Agnes Meyer on conditions in the postwar (1946) South. There are four Warburton diaries, none of which is particularly long or revealing. There are also many photographs of Warburton and her friends and relatives.

This series consists of printed material from the Brookwood Labor College. The Brookwood Labor College was an educational institution for workers founded in 1921 in Katonah, New York. Warburton was the school librarian for two years, 1923-1925.

Within the series are pamphlets about Brookwood; articles, plays, and poems by Brookwood faculty members and students; and nine issues of the school newspaper, The Brookwood Review. There are several memorandums addressing the problem of the split between the faculty of the college and some prominent trade unionists. In general, a split developed because William Green, president of the A.F.L., accused the faculty of espousing communism. The faculty denied the charge.

This series contains course reports, notes, and outlines, scrapbooks, pamphlets, booklets, and three issues of The News from the Southern Summer School for Women Workers in Industry. Warburton taught at six-week summer sessions held in Sweet Briar, Virginia in 1927, and Burnsville, North Carolina, in 1928 and 1929. Warburton also taught in a similar program in the summer of 1935, the Bryn Mawr Summer School for Women in Industry held in Mount Ivy, New York. Printed material from that program is included in this series. Additional material about this organization is in the Alice Mary Baldwin Papers in the Duke University Archives. Researchers interested in social history would find the student scrapbooks, where students often wrote short essays on their youth and work experiences, a rich source of information on Southern women workers in the late 1920's and early 1930's.

This series contains correspondence, notes, reports, schedules, and printed material pertaining to Warburton's field study of coal mining villages in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois in 1929 and a rural-industrial county in Georgia in 1930. Warburton was one of several investigators sent out to small industrial villages to study the churches and their roles in the villages. Though researchers were supposed to concentrate on churches, Warburton devoted much attention to social and economic conditions in the villages. Consequently, there is some revealing descriptive and statistical information on the villages Warburton visited. There is also printed material from the United Mine Workers.

Warburton taught labor and economics at Spelman College and Atlanta University from 1929 to 1932. Material from this period includes speeches, course materials such as outlines, bibliographies, and student essays, printed material, ten issues of Crisis magazine, and clippings. The series also has correspondence, minutes, reports, printed material, and clippings from the Atlanta Forum Association, an organization devoted to bringing liberal speakers to Atlanta.

Researchers would probably find the student autobiographies and a survey of standards of living in black districts in Atlanta the most fascinating primary material in the series. There is also a good group photograph of some students and faculty of Atlanta University (undated, but taken sometime during Warburton's tenure). The photograph is not in the series, but rather in an oversize folder.

This series has correspondence, reports, printed material, and clippings from Warburton's work with the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. In 1934Warburton directed training centers for teachers in Atlanta, Georgia, and Gulfport, Mississippi. In 1935 she directed a similar center in Logan, Utah. Interesting material includes letters and reports that highlight the difficulties of running programs designed to train unemployed teachers how to teach "worker's education," as well as autobiographies of unemployed teachers.

In 1935Warburton studied an Affiliated Schools for Workers program in Detroit, Michigan. This series has material from her study, as well as a great deal of material concerned with other programs sponsored by the New Deal. There are reports, pamphlets, clippings, and printed material in the series. The bulk of the series is printed material, the most interesting of which is probably the reports of the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. Researchers should use this series in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Relief Administration Series.

This series has correspondence, notes, family schedules, drafts of reports and studies, printed material, and photographs from Warburton's work for the Children's Bureau, 1939-1942. The bulk of the material is printed reports, either done or received by the Children's Bureau. While at the Bureau, Warburton supervised two studies that eventually were published: Industrial Homework Conditions in the Candlewick-Bedspread and Lace Industries, and Work and Welfare of Children of Agricultural Laborers in Hidalgo County, Texas. Material from the Hidalgo County study provides a penetrating view of social and economic conditions in south Texas in the early 1940's. Besides the copious printed material from the study, there are many photographs, some of which are quite good.

This series has correspondence, notes, reports and drafts of reports, clippings, and printed material from Warburton's 1946 study of education for migrant children in the Cotton Belt. The study was part of a larger report on postwar agricultural and economic problems in the Cotton Belt. The report was prepared for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture and formally presented to Congress in July, 1947. Besides the report, probably the most interesting material is the field reports on social and economic conditions in northwestern Arkansas in 1946.

Box 23

This is the largest series in the Warburton collection. It contains correspondence, reports, studies, clippings, printed material, photographs, and volumes from Warburton's sixteen-year tenure as executive secretary and director of research of the Alliance for Guidance of Rural Youth. The organization disbanded in 1963.

Approximately sixty percent of this series came to the library already organized. The remaining forty percent of the material was unorganized and had to be integrated into the organized material. With modifications and additions, the integration of the material was done using the original (1949) index to the office files as a guide.

Material in the collection is arranged by subject, and within subject by type (correspondence, printed material, etc.) The subjects are not arranged alphabetically or chronologically, so researchers should carefully study the subject entries for the entire series before plunging into the material. Also there is considerable overlapping of material in the series. For instance, correspondence from Glyn Morris of Harlan County, Kentucky, could be found under Harlan County or under Board of Trustees, depending on the subject. Consequently, researchers should expect to examine several subject headings if the topic is broad.

Once the inventory is studied, researchers will find rich sources of information on socioeconomic conditions in several rural or rural-industrial communities: Harlan County, Kentucky, Green Sea, South Carolina, and Belle Glade, Florida. Much of the work done in these and other communities was compressed into terse, lucid studies that can be found under the heading "Publications" in boxes 26 and 27. There is also much material on the day-to-day operations of several guidance organizations: Alliance for Guidance of Rural Youth, Council of Guidance and Personnel Associations, and the National Council of Agricultural Life and Labor.

In1952 the CGPA changed its name to American Personnel and Guidance Association. Consequently, all material from 1952 and after should be under the heading APGA, but for ease of organization, the material from the APGA has remained under the heading CGPA.

In 1947 the Alliance for Guidance of Rural Youth helped the people of Harlan County, Kentucky, set up programs to deal with educational and vocational guidance, health, nutrition, child welfare, and the prevention of juvenile delinquency. The programs were a county-wide continuation of a much smaller guidance and health program started at the Pine Mountain Settlement School in 1935. Material from Harlan County is divided into three broad categories: Guidance Institutes, community programs generated by the Institutes, and material related to the book written about the work in Harlan County, Guidance in a Rural-Industrial Community. A copy of the book is in Box 27.

In 1949 the Alliance for Guidance of Rural Youth helped the people in the Green Sea School District in northern Horry County, South Carolina, set up programs to deal with educational and vocational guidance, health, nutrition, child welfare, and the prevention of juvenile delinquency. Material from Green Sea is arranged differently than material from Harlan County: papers from the Youth Guidance Institute are not separated from the community-generated material, but rather incorporated within it. Material related to the book written about the work in Green Sea, Guidance in a Rural Community, is at the end of the papers from Green Sea. Although there is no copy of the book in the collection, there are several complete manuscripts. A copy is available in the East Campus Library.

In 1947 a group of individuals and organizations formed a council to study problems of migrant labor, the National Citizens Council for Migrant Labor. The council not only studied the problems of migrant labor, but also lobbied Congress, monitored federal and state agencies, and publicized key issues on behalf of migrant laborers. Warburton was a founding member of the council, and served on its board of directors from 1947 to 1960 . In 1953 she supervised a field study of migrant laborers in the Belle Glade section of Palm Beach County, Florida. Her findings were incorporated into the book, The Education of Migrant Children, by Shirley E. Greene. A copy of the book is in Box 27.

In 1950 the council expanded its scope to include problems of everyone involved in agriculture in the United States. Consequently, the council changed its name to the National Citizens Council on Agricultural Life and Labor. For ease of organization, all material has been grouped under the heading, National Citizens Council for Migrant Labor.

Between 1960-1963 Warburton conducted a study of the effects of the National Defense Education Act Title V-A on guidance programs in rural secondary Schools. Title V-A allocated 15 million dollars a year (from 1958 to 1961) to stimulate guidance programs in secondary schools. This study was the last major project sponsored by the Alliance for Guidance of Rural Youth.

Material from the study is divided into four groups: general, state, local, and material related to the book written about the study, Stimulating Guidance in Rural Schools(1964). A copy of the book is in Box 27.
