Correspondence [series]

Correspondence consists of general correspondence with friends and colleagues; family correspondence, primarily letters between Robben and Sally and their children, ca. 1950-1990, and letters of congratulations and regrets. There is finally the letters from Robben Fleming to his wife and to other family members while serving in World War II. This includes both regular mail and V-mail [letters photocopied and reduced by the Army for easier transmission home to the states].

Knight v. State of Alabama 1989-1994 [series]

Knight v. State of Alabama was a federal court case that challenged numerous funding and other policies of the state's colleges and universities on the grounds that they believed were racially discriminatory. Fleming was one of five neutral expert witnesses appointed by the court to assist it in fashioning a constructive remedial decree. These experts reviewed the policies found to perpetuate segregation in Alabama's colleges and universities and recommended changes to reduce racial separation in the system. These are Fleming' files from his work on that committee.
