Description
The papers in this collection derive from Jacoby's activities both as a teacher and as a citizen acting in the cause of reform.
Background
Harold S. Jacoby (1907-2000) was a Professor of Sociology at the University of the Pacific (1933-62, 1968-76) and Dean of the College of the Pacific (1962-68). Jacoby was also a memeber of the staff of the Tule Lake Relocation Center in California (1942), The Japanese-American Resettlement Program in Chicago (1943), and the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Program in the Middle East (1944). During the 1950s and 60s Jacoby was often involved in community affairs of Stockton, California. He regularly sent his students into the community to analyze and write about its institutions and structure. Jacoby himself completed a census analysis project (1950) that later formed the basis for Stockton school desegregation. He also served on a Mayor's Cross-town Freeway Relocation Committee (1967).
