Series 1 Administrative Files, 1938-1955

Physical Description: 4.0 boxes

Scope and Contents

This series contains a combination of correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs, and ephemera relating to the work of the Regional Service Committee to promote commerce through all trade sectors of California's counties. Files include the upcoming activities of organizations and associations, county fairs and newspaper articles about new products and new employees. Some information was probably used for the Regional Service Committee's weekly digest/review of California activity. The county files often contain promotional brochures and magazines.
There are references to labor problems in San Francisco and the ripple effect on small farmers and trade in the surrounding counties. The earliest items are correspondence from 1938 and minutes for the ACRS/RSC from 1938-1942. Of interest are files for motion picture and radio programs to promote the city, agriculture and trade, which include scripts and ideas for future programs.
