List of Contents

Series:

1. Pre-Merger, 1891-1963
Volume:2 cubic ft.
Arrangement:Alphabetical
Summary:This series documents the history of the settlements before they merged to become United South End Settlements. Documentation includes the actions taken by the South End Area Planning Group, which consisted of the South End, Hale, Lincoln, and Harriet Tubman Houses, and Ellis and Morgan Memorial, in response to the Community to the Community Fund survey; the subsequent formation of the Federation of South End Settlements in 1950; and the incorporation of South End, Hale, Lincoln, and Harriet Tubman Houses, and the Children's Art Centre in 1960. Also documented are the creation of the Children's Art Centre, its programs, activities, and exhibitions from 1915-1963; and the purpose and creation of the Andover House Association in 1891, its residents, and its four years of activity before being renamed the South End House. In addition this series contains a history of the South End House, its programs, committees, activities, and role in the community from 1895-1959; and histories of Hale, Lincoln, and Harriet Tubman houses; and early references to urban renewal in the South End.

Records include annual reports of the Children's Art Centre from 1922-1963; annual reports of the Andover House Association from 1891-1894; South End House annual reports from 1892-1907 (reports for 1943-1950 are missing); the 25th anniversary report for years 1891-1917, the 30th anniversary report for years 1892-1922, and the 50th anniversary report for years 1891-1942. Minutes of the Federation's directors, South End Planning Group, and Boston Social Union meetings are also included. In addition, the series contains reports from the South End Area Planning Committee regarding the programs and services of the individual settlement houses and their consolidation; the Community Fund survey; by-laws of Andover, Hale, Lincoln, and South End houses; and budgets and treasurer's reports. Also included is correspondence to and from the settlement house directors and members of the Board of Directors regarding the consolidation, and Federation of South End Settlement newsletters. Articles and reports contain information on the settlement house movement, urban renewal, the South End, and the Children's Art Center.

Of special interest are the minutes of the South End Planning Group, which describe the programs and activities of all the houses and contain discussions regarding consolidation (Box 1); responses and correspondence by the settlement houses to the Community Fund survey (Box 1); and the manuscript and research notes for The Zone of Emergence, Robert Woods' and Albert Kennedy's only book about Boston's neighborhoods (Box 2). Also of special interest are the South End House reports from 1982-1907 written by Robert Woods, which provide a thorough but concise history of the South End House. Included with these reports are the Andover House reports from 1891-1894 written by William J. Tucker (Box 2).

Also of note are the correspondence regarding the international exhibition of the art work from Children's Art Centre (Box 1); correspondence between Robert Woods and Ester Barrow (Box 2), in which they discuss Miss Barrows returning to the South End House as Head Worker; correspondence from Maria Chapman Weston regarding Harriet Tubman (Box 1); and the correspondence between Eleanor Woods and Charles Ernst in which they discuss the history and the future of the South End House (Box 2). The material documenting the dedication of the Stone Family Library (Box 2), explaining the relationship between the Woods and the Stones and giving a history of the South End House (Box 2), as well as the speech given by William Cole in memory of Robert Woods are also of interest (Box 2).

In addition, there are three scrapbooks in this series. The first is a scrapbook of the Chester Park Neighborhood Association (Box 1), which was established by the South End Planning Council and active in the South End during the 1950s. The second scrapbook contains newspaper clippings from 1910-1931 and provides information about the South End House's programs and activities; some of this information nor found in other parts of the collection. The third scrapbook is of photographs of early South End House programs that were administered out of the South Bay Union and the 48 Rutland Street centers, including kindergarten classes, May Day celebrations, the roof garden, and flower delivery. Also included are photographs from the summer camp in Wellesley and Bristol Farms (Box 1). The original scrapbook was photocopied to preserve the arrangement; actual photographs are located in Series 7, Audio-visual and Memorabilia.

Summary:This series documents the activities of the Board of Directors and its committees working together with Executive Director's office to set goals, objectives, and policies. Also documented is United South End Settlement's role in urban renewal in the South End; community organization; the planning, and building of the new Harriet Tubman House; and the histories of such organizations as the South End Development Corporation and Action for Boston Community Development. The activities of the Board's committees, particularly the Executive, Budget Review, Strategic Planning, and Nominating committees, are also documented. This series consists of annual reports, and Board of Directors, Board committees, and special board meeting minutes. The annual reports document the agency's programs, funding, fundraising, special events, and future plans. Annual reports are missing for the years 1984-1987 and 1991-1992 and 2001-2006.

Board records include by-laws; agendas and minutes of monthly, special, and annual meetings; and agendas and minutes of the standing committees. Also included is correspondence to and from board members, executive directors, funders, outside organizations, and local government officials. Reports by the executive director concerning the status of all programs, development activities, staff changes, and facilities; and reports from the Castle Square Demonstration project, program descriptions, and personnel manuals are also included. Board of Directors minutes date from 1961-1999. Missing from the collection are Board of Directors meeting minutes for Feb 1961-Nov 1965, Apr 1966-Dec 1967, Apr 1971-Nov 1971, Jan and Mar-December 1972, 1973, Jan-Sept 1974, and Dec 1979.

Of special interest is the lawsuit by the Community Assembly for a United South End filed by Mel King, which sought to prohibit United South End Settlements' collaboration with the Boston Redevelopment Authority during urban renewal (Box 6); and F. Douglas Cochrane's correspondence for its background information on United South End Settlements from 1963-1970. Correspondents include Charles Liddell, Henry Newell, Frederick Taylor, and Kenneth Brown

(Box 6). Also of interest are reports submitted to United Community Services (United Way) from 1961-1969.

These are the only records in the collection that document the activities of the individual centers.

Series:

5. Development Office, 1900-2009
Volume:5 cubic ft.
Arrangement:Arranged alphabetically.
Summary:This series documents the Development Office's efforts to raise funds for operations and programs from foundation, corporate, and individual sources. Major donors include the Boston Foundation, Associated Grantmakers, the Hyams Foundation, Polaroid Corporation, State Street Bank, Newsboy Reading Room, Coolidge Fund, United Way, Eli Goldston, the Riley Foundation, and the Boston Globe Foundation. The series also documents the Development Office's involvement in applying for grants and its relationship with the Camp Hale Alumni Association. In addition, this series documents the history of the South End House and the settlement house movement, and contains biographical information on people associated with United South End Settlements, including members of the Board of Directors and residents of the South End. The proposal for the creation of a cultural arts center in the South End and the proposed Allan Crite Museum are also documented.

Records include proposals and grant awards; obituaries of former directors and members of the Board of Directors, such as Rosamond Lamb, Melnea Cass, John Kingman, Mildred Louise Clark, and Charles Liddell. Correspondence to and from donors, funders, the executive director of United South End Settlements; members of the Board of Directors; Henry Newell, and F. Douglas Cochrane is included. Research notes on the history of the South End, Hale, Lincoln, and Rollins houses; Robert and Eleanor Woods; Jane Addams; and the Stone Family and their relationship with the Woods are also included.

Of interest are the Ken Brown interview, which provides background on the early years of United South End Settlements and urban renewal (Box 59); a letter announcing the discontinuation of the Resident's Program and its effect on past residents (Box 64); Helen Morton's correspondence for background information on the South End and the South End House (Box 64); and the Cultural Arts Center records, which detail the efforts of establishing such a center in the South End (Boxes 60 and 64). Also of interest are United South End Settlements involvement in the proposed establishment of the Allan Crite Museum (Box 59); the final report on the Castle Square Relocation project, which encapsulates the history of the project and United South End Settlement's role in urban renewal (Box 64); and the report "United South End Settlements: a Case Study", which examines the organization using the case study approach (Box 64). Grant proposals are also located throughout Series 3, Executive Staff. Grants and contracts from public sources are located in Series 6, Business Office and Public Grants and Contracts.

Series:

7. Audio-visual Material and Memorabilia, 1900-2009
Volume:8 cubic ft. and 1 flat file drawers
Arrangement:Alphabetical by format.
Summary:The Audio-visual and Memorabilia series documents fundraising activities, meetings and events, staff, and programs. Also documented are early programs at the Children's Art Center, 48 Rutland Street, the old Tubman House, 20 Union Park Drive, and Camp Hale. In addition, the South End neighborhood before urban renewal; the installation and unveiling of the Emancipation sculpture at Harriet Tubman Park; and the exhibits held in the Harriet Tubman Gallery are documented. The South End Honor Roll, United South End Settlements' oral history project, documents the history and cultures of the South End, the relationship of settlement houses with the neighborhood, their role in the neighborhood, and the South End during the Depression and the World Wars. Formats include color and black and white prints, slides, negatives, contact sheets, compact discs, VHS, 8mm and 1" reel-to-reel film. Also included are artwork, posters, and maps.

Of special interest are the photographs of the settlement houses and their programs from 1900 to 1925, which provide information on early programs, such as the Caddy Camp in Poland Springs, New Hampshire and the summer camps in Wellesley, Massachusetts and Brenton Woods, New Hampshire; drama classes; and South Bay Union activities, including the Flower Delivery Program and the roof garden (Boxes 82-83). Helen Morton's scrapbook (1920-1980) contains a comprehensive pictorial history of United South End Settlements and some of the people who were closely involved with it, such as Allan Crite (Box 83). Also of interest are the two other scrapbooks that include images of the South End Neighborhood and the settlement houses (Box 83). In addition, The South End Honor Roll with interviews of South End residents Barbara Williams, Teddy McLaren, Alice Sanford, Dorothea Collins, Chris Hayes, Clare Hayes, and Helen Hellman describe life in the neighborhood, its history and culture, and its relationship with United South End Settlements from the 1930s to 1990s (Box 79). Also of note are photographs the Hi-Hat Cabaret Night (Box 80); the "Free Erica Huggins" poster from the Black Panther Organization (FF6/D9); the Castle Square area property map (FF6/D9); and the self portrait sketch by Allan Crite (Box 77). Slides in General folders (Box 86) include images of the South End Business Alliance (SEBA) and the South End Planning Council (SEPC).
