       Biographical note 
       Victor Howard was a professor of history at Morehead State University and is the author of
        several articles and books. Mr. Howard's life-long interest in Civil Rights matches his
        interest in education, and is revealed to us through the material he solicited and collected
        from many major U.S. cities, a majority of the states, the federal government, social and
        political organizations, and various individuals. 
     
     
       Scope and Contents 
       The Victor Howard collection on Civil Rights and Church-State (dated 1907, 1931-1976, 1989;
        53.57 cubic feet; 53 record storage boxes, 1 oversize flat box, 1 document box) consists of
        pamphlets, reports, newspapers, publications, speeches, and correspondence from and
        regarding United States public agencies and organizations concerning civil rights and the
        relationship between church and state. A great deal of literature that might be found in
        archives in Washington, D.C., or in any of the fifty U.S. states, is available in this
        collection. The collection includes letters written to Mr. Howard by various city, state,
        and federal agencies in response to requests from him for information and literature
        documenting their position on, and progress in achieving Civil Rights. A majority of the
        material in this collection arrived as a result of Victor Howard's unrelenting desire to
        discover the nature and status of Civil Rights in the United States. Within each box of
        material organized by state, several areas of concentration are evident, including:
        discrimination, desegregation, education, employment, housing, human rights, human/community
        relations, laws and litigation, political influence and comments, religion, and segregation.
        Within folders may be found official pamphlets, reports, and addresses from local, state,
        and national sources (the public sector), and reports, articles, and statements from
        organizations and individuals in the private sector, that comment on the subject (education,
        housing, employment, etc.) or present official information on it. While much of the material
        pertains to official Civil Rights legislation and policy for a city or state, there is also
        material regarding incidents of racial 'unrest' and discrimination in specific neighborhoods
        and cities. Weekly, monthly and quarterly issues of journals, bulletins, newspapers and
        ephemera from Civil Rights organizations and public agencies, are also part of the
        collection. While there are only a few issues of some publications, others offer a more
        complete set. The collection includes material directly related to the struggle for Civil
        Rights in forty-three states and the District of Columbia, Civil Rights material of national
        origin and focus, and material related to Church and State or religios groups and the
        governent. 
     
     
       Arrangement 
       Collection is arranged by subject.
