Subseries 2.4
Other professional papers, 1970-2007
Boxes 39-46 and 54-55; OP 5; and BV 1-2

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of other professional papers including agendas, appointment books, board and committee files, teaching and university files, and the records of the Amistad Corporation from 1970-2007. Agendas and appointment books include information about Lomax's personal and professional schedule. Board and committee files document Lomax's service on the Boards of Directors of the National Black Arts Festival, Teach for America, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and the United Way. They primarily include memoranda to the board members and board books for meetings.

Teaching and university files document Lomax's early teaching career and primarily include administrative records from the Atlanta University Center, Afro-American Studies Program. There are also administrative records relating to Lomax's employment as a lecturer at Morehouse College and Spelman College, but there are very few files documenting Lomax's teaching at those institutions. There is one folder of records relating to Lomax's tenure as President of Dillard University in New Orleans, as well as two folders documenting transition plans after he became President and CEO of the United Negro College Fund.

Amistad Corporation records consist of financial and other administrative documents such as invoices, tax returns, payroll records, correspondence, meeting minutes, insurance records, manuals, and legal records. The records reflect the operations of the company, including the acquisition of the Franklin-Strickland Funeral Home and the merger of Amistad Corporation with Wilson Financial Group. The subseries includes records of the Franklin-Strickland Funeral Home from before the acquisition, as well as documents relating to Amistad's plan for closing following the merger with Wilson.
