Subseries 8.1
Administrative records, 1971-1989
Boxes 32-41

Scope and Content Note

The administrative records subseries, dating from 1972 to 1989, includes records of the annual meetings, correspondence, financial records, press releases, mailings, and clippings. The minutes of the annual meetings document planning strategies, issues to be addressed, positions to be adopted, board elections, and other internal business matters such as staffing and fundraising. Of special note here is the correspondence which includes letters to and from various elected representatives and Department of Human Resources board members, and the mailings which were so critical to the campaign to educate and inform the membership concerning poverty issues. The mailings, which offer the clearest record of the GPRO operations, track key issues from year to year and the organization's campaign for welfare reform.
