The collection also contains materials from former UC faculty such as George Cox, Kate Gordon, Ernest Moore, and Robert Sproul11ocn768495338book19971.00Wilkinson, FrankMatters of conscience Frank WilkinsonInterviewsThe interview begins with Wilkinson's family background, childhood and education in Charlevoix, Mich., Douglas, Ariz. and Hollywood and Beverly Hills, Calif. It continues with his undergraduate education and student leadership at UCLA, his post-graduation trip to the Holy Land and Europe in 1936-37, and his subsequent public lecture engagements before groups and organizations in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The interview also includes extensive discussion about Wilkinson's positions and activities as a public housing leader and racial integration advocate with the Citizens Housing Council of Los Angeles and the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, his dismissal from the housing authority immediately after a September 1952 eminent domain hearing relating to sites for future public housing projects in the city, his virtual unemployability until beconing secretary of the Citizens Committee to Preserve American Freedoms (CCPAF) and for one year national field organizer for the National Emergency Civil Liberties committee (ELCL), his subsequent leadership in CCPAF's successor organizations, including the National Committee to Abolish the House UnAmerican Activities Committee (NCAHUAC) and the National Committee Against Repressive Legislation (NCARL), his and Carl Braden's 9-month imprisonment for contempt of Congress while making First Amendment challenges to the legality of the inquisitorial Committee on UnAmerican Activities of the United States House of Representatives. Complementing the historical narrative are Wilkinson's reflections on such contemporary events as the 1992 Los Angeles rebellion following a Simi Valley jury's acquittal of LAPD officers for violating the rights of Rodney G. King, and his discussions about speaking across the country and participating in several states as a part of the American Bar Association's Law-Related Education Program for educators and students11ocn702135983bks1.00Wilder, ThorntonThornton Wilder papersArchivesBibliographyThe collection consists chiefly of correspondence with family, friends, and literary colleagues; and writings, accompanied by related material.
