Series I. Projects related to housing and urban redevelopment, 1947-1998, undated

Physical Description: 3.0 linear feet (6 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

The series consists primarily of negatives, contact prints, and notes that Nadel produced while working for the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) in the 1940s and 1950s. In addition to documentation of HACLA's public housing projects, there are also photographic surveys of the city's slums and historic areas targeted by the Community Redevelopmnent Agency (CRA) for demolition and revitalization. Additionally, there are photographs of the planning meetings of city officials and architects, tours, hearings, and conferences. Also present is documentation of slums in New York, which Nadel took in the early 1950s when he was sent to that city to prepare a comparative documentary study of the two cities. See Series II for Nadel's extensive documentation of the Pueblo del Rio and Aliso Village projects.

Arrangement note

Arranged in three subseries: Series I.A. Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, 1948-1997; Series I.B. Community Redevelopment Agency, 1948-1998; Series I.C. Various subjects, undated.
 

Series I.A. Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, 1948-1997, undated

Leonard Nadel photographs for the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, 1948-1997 (digital version)

Physical Description: 1.5 linear feet

Scope and Content Note

The bulk of the subseries consists of negatives, contact prints, annotated envelopes and notes produced by Nadel as a documentary photographer for the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA). From aerial and panoramic views to close-range shots, Nadel documented not only the physical environment and buildings, but also their inhabitants. A good portion of the material focuses on individual families or tenants, affording a very personal portrait of slum and project life. In addition to documentation of public housing projects such as Avalon Gardens, Ramona Gardens, Basilone Homes, and the unrealized Elysian Park Heights project, the subseries also contains extensive documentation of slums, particularly near downtown Los Angeles. Among the other HACLA-related material is a copy of There's Nothing Sentimental About Your Cash Register, which consolidates HACLA's 8th, 9th, and 10th annual reports with accompanying photographs, and a copy of And Ten Thousand More, the 1949 University of Southern California student film produced for HACLA. Also included is a small amount of material related to Frank Wilkinson, planning meetings of city officials and architects (including Richard Neutra, Robert Alexander, and Lloyd Wright), tours, hearings, and conferences. See Series II for Nadel's extensive documentation of the Pueblo del Rio and Aliso Village projects.

Arrangement note

Arrangement is chronological by project or topic, with obviously related material, mostly undated, occasionally included in a grouping. Nadel's original grouping of material within each envelope is retained. The envelopes often contain a mixture of subjects and projects, and each group is therefore classified according to the preponderance of the visual materials contained within it. The notes on these envelopes and the accompanying note cards do not necessarily reflect the subject matter of the negatives and prints contained in them.

Elysian Park Heights project, Bulk, 1950-1952 1950-1997, undated

Scope and Content Note

Elysian Park Heights was HACLA's proposed public housing project meant to replace the old, predominently Latino Chávez Ravine neigborhoods of La Loma, Palo Verde, and Bishop, and the surrounding hillside grazing lands. Lying in close proximity to downtown Los Angeles, Chávez Ravine was viewed as underutilized, and its established, but poor communities were labeled as "blighted." When the tide turned against public housing with the election of Norris Poulson as mayor of Los Angeles in 1953, the Elysian Park Heights project was halted, even though most of the neighborhoods had been demolished in preparation for the new housing. The land, which had been purchased for the housing project under eminent domain with funds allocated by the Federal Housing Authority, was repurchased by the city with the stipulation that it be used for a "public purpose" which was eventually translated into a baseball stadium.

This subseries contains Nadel's photographic documentation of several areas of Los Angeles that the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) targeted for commercial revitalization in the 1940s and 1950s, such as Bunker Hill, the Temple Street area, Ann Street, and the Alameda Street area. He made meticulous photographic surveys, sometimes block by block, of the slums and historic areas targeted for demolition and redevelopment. Documentation of the Bunker Hill Renewal Project is particularly extensive. Also included is documentation of an Urban Redevelopment Commission tour. In addition to black-and-white negatives and contact prints, materials also include Nadel's original, annotated negative envelopes and handwritten notes.

Arrangement note

Materials are arranged primarily by geographical area. Nadel's original grouping of material within each envelope is retained. The envelopes often contain a mixture of subjects and projects, and each group is therefore classified according to the preponderance of the visual materials contained within it. The notes on these envelopes and the accompanying note cards do not necessarily reflect the subject matter of the negatives and prints contained in them.

Bunker Hill Renewal Project, 1951-1956

Scope and Content Note

The 133-acre Bunker Hill Urban Renewal Project, conceived as a project to raze the once-stately Victorian neighborhood that had drastically declined due to the suburbanization made possible by the trolley lines and furthered by the automobile and the development of Los Angeles's freeway system, and to revitalize it as a business district, was begun by the CRA in 1955. It is scheduled for completion in 2015, making it the longest redevelopment project in Los Angeles. The area is bounded by First St. on the north, Hill St. on the east, Fifth St. on the south and the Harbor Freeway on the west. The first stage of the project, documented by Nadel, was massive slum clearance and the flattening of the hilltop.
Notecards and annotations on envelopes contain information on housing conditions, rents, and occupancy. There are also frequent observations on the occupants including names, ages, occupations, length of tenancy, and other family matters. Other general topics noted are land use, alleyways, traffic, and street conditions.

The mid-century modernist project was designed by the Southeast Housing Architects, which included Richard Neutra, Gordon Kaufman, Adrian Wilson, and the firm of Wurdeman & Becket. The chief architect on the project was Paul R. Williams, Los Angeles's first successful African-American architect, known as the "architect to the stars" for the many private residences he designed for the Hollywood elite. Nadel began documenting Pueblo del Rio while a student at the Art Center College of Design. In the late 1940s he showed some of the photographs to Frank Wilkinson, who encouraged him to continue his documentation, and later hired him as a photographer for HACLA.

Leonard Nadel photographs of Aliso Village, 1948-1994, bulk 1948-1949 (digital version)

Physical Description: 3.25 linear feet

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of Nadel's unpublished book, "Aliso Village, USA," and additional material related to the project. Designed in 1942 by the Housing Group Architects, lead by Ralph Flewelling and including Lloyd Wright, the garden city-style Aliso Village was one of the first racially integrated public housing projects in the United States. It was built in the Boyle Heights area known as "The Flats," which in the 1930s was one of the most impoverished areas of Los Angeles. Aliso Village was demolished in 1999 and replaced by a new housing project, Pueblo del Sol.
Nadel documented Aliso Village from 1948 to 1949. The book he assembled is a photographic study of four families - Asian, African-American, Caucasian, and Latino - living in this historic community. Between 1949 and 1951 Nadel made a concerted effort to find a publisher for the book. In 1949 he made a trip to Washington, D.C. and New York City to meet with supporters and potential publishers. In addition to meeting with representatives from organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union and the American Council on Race Relations, he also met with photographers Edward Steichen and Roy Stryker, who assessed his photographs. The related correspondence and Nadel's meeting notes are included in this subseries. Although there was interest in the project at the time, the book was never published.

Arrangement

Materials are arranged thematically, and include views of the project, and of community life such as activities and organizations within the project, and its schools. This is followed by a section on each of the four families Nadal documented in-depth, as well as notes pertaining to Aliso Village in general, and the families in particular. The last part of the subseries consists of the book matter, including slides of the selected images, the introductory text, the maquette, and correspondence and notes regarding the book and Nadel's efforts to publish it.
