Boxes 1-18, 71, OP1/1, and XOP 19

Scope and Content Note

The series contains administrative material of the Druid Hills Civic Association from 1938 to 2009. Included are records of the Board of Directors of the organization, documents from DHCA involvement with the Atlanta Urban Design Commission, records of various DHCA committees, DHCA organizational records, and other materials.

The Board of Directors records contain correspondence with Atlanta officials and Druid Hills residents about neighborhood issues, meeting minutes and agendas from Board meetings, and lists of DHCA officers. The Atlanta Urban Design Commission records document zoning and construction issues related to several large Druid Hills structures. Committee documents describe the activities of various committees such as the annual Home and Garden Tour, the Land Use Planning and Zoning Committee, the Historic Landmark Preservation Committee, the Special Projects Committee, and the Transportation Committee. There is a small amount of material from the Membership Committee, the Public Relations Committee, and Telephone Committee. The organization documents include membership lists, bylaws, and legal documents. Other materials include information on neighborhood events such as Earth Day, other documents relating to historic preservation and zoning, and public relations documents.
