Subseries 14.2
Accounting records, 1960-2004
Boxes 655 - 679; OBV1 - 88 and 193

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of the accounting records of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference from 1960-2004, including ledgers, daily reports of responses, remittance logs, day sheets and vouchers. Ledgers record the income and expenditures of the organization from 1960-1982. Income ledgers document donor information, including name and address, as well as income from other sources such as grants. Expenditure ledgers document the number, type and amount of expenses incurred by the organization. Ledgers for specific programs contain both income and expenditure information.

Daily reports of responses were forms filled out by staff in the financial office to record donations received on a given day in response to solicitations by the organization. Similarly, remittance logs record all money received by the organization each day, including names and addresses of donors. These forms also recorded purchases of various items sold by SCLC. The bulk of this material covers the period 1964-1978, with spottier coverage in other years. Day sheets record the daily expenses of SCLC. The only complete years are 1967, 1969 and 1970, though some sheets exist for other years between 1965-1989.

Of particular note will be the day sheets and remittance logs from Washington, D.C. during the Poor People's Campaign of 1968. Finally, vouchers were filled out by members of the organization any time payment was issued for an invoice or expense reimbursement. The forms document which staff person incurred the expense, why the expense was incurred, the date of the expense, the amount of the expense and the account from which the expense was paid.

Arrangement Note
