Rosters [series]

(correspondence, reports, memos, etc.)

Although the nature of most series are clear from the title given them, others require explanation. The series labeled Rosters documents Dunham's activities from the 1920s through the 1970s. "Rosters" is the term used by Dunham, and in this series, he placed correspondence, memos, reports, and ephemera. Significantly, from the 1950s to his death, the "Roster" series was almost exclusively correspondence. The researcher should thus note that for this period the roster files are a more complete series of correspondence than the Correspondence series itself. The Rosters series is made up of a chronologically arranged subseries as well as separate subseries of "Rosters" relating to various posts Dunham held as visiting professor.

Associations [series]

The Associations series includes very detailed chronological records of the activities of the Newton Central Council and the Public Charities Association (PCA) of Pennsylvania during Dunham's tenure with these organizations. The Newton Central Council case record is arranged by page number and accessible by a table of contents. The PCA material includes two principal subseries, one including minutes, reports, and agenda and the other including scrapbooks assembled by Dunham which reflect the activities of the PCA. Both of these subseries are arranged by date.

Also notable in the Associations series is the National Association of Social Workers material. This includes transcripts of an oral history interview with Dunham that includes extensive biographical and organizational information. Also within this series is a file for the Michigan Council of Churches Committee on Race Relations with material dating from 1943 to 1945 which may be of interest to students of early approaches to civil rights.
