Subseries 4.5
Albert E. Love files, 1973-1992
Boxes 215 - 243; OP7 - 8

Biographical Note

Reverend Albert E. Love served as National Administrator of SCLC from September 1980 to June 1988. As National Administrator, Love supervised the day to day activities of the national office and, although he carried many titles during his tenure with SCLC, his duties as an administrator of the national office essentially remained the same.

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of the records of Albert E. Love from 1973-1992, including correspondence and office files. Correspondence files span the years 1971-1988, with significant gaps in correspondence from 1977 to 1979. Office files consist of administrative records, including material for the 22nd-31st Annual Conventions, internal memoranda, things-to-do lists, biographical sketches of potential speakers for SCLC-organized events, meeting minutes and agendas (sparse from 1979 to 1988), material for the Drum Major for Justice Golf Tournament and Awards Dinner, itineraries, mailing lists, and other materials relating to events and programs organized by SCLC, such as marches. Also included are notebooks and other records of Peggy Perry, Love's assistant.

Of particular interest are the administrative records relating to voter registration (1980-1988), an initiative by SCLC in the 1980s to increase the number of registered and educated voters, particularly black voters, in the U.S. Office files also include subject files that reflect a range of interests and concerns from apartheid in South Africa, national anti-Klan campaigns and domestic violence, to leadership development, interreligious and interdenominational coalition-building, and the protection, education and development of children and young adults.

Arrangement Note

Correspondence is arranged in chronological order; office files are arranged in alphabetical order.
