Personal papers, 1919-1991
Boxes 1-4, OP 1-4

Scope and Content Note

Series 1 contains materials of both a personal and general nature relating to Frances Pauley. The Personal Papers series includes biographical data, awards, correspondence to and from Pauley (1951-1989, no date), a diary (no date), legal documents, appointment books, calendars, telephone messages, address books, a program, and an audio recording. Also included in this series are photographs of Pauley, clippings relating to her life and work, and programs, brochures, sketches and memorabilia collected by Pauley.

Although most materials documenting Pauley's public career will be found in the organizational series (League of Women Voters, Georgia Council on Human Relations, etc.), there is also some material in this series. Of particular note are letters written by Pauley to her children during her years with the Civil Rights Office of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. These letters comment on the desegregation protests in Albany, Georgia (1961), desegregation confrontations in Georgia and other Southern states, and her reaction to the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. Also of note is a form letter signed by Martin Luther King, Jr. in folder 5.
