Description
The Horace J. McMillan Papers consists of nine series distributed in six archival boxes. Correspondence, reports, and newspaper clippings make up the bulk of the collection. Together with the McMillan oral history interview in CEMA's Santa Barbara African American Oral History Collections, these papers document McMillan's education and career as a physician and his fights against racism and for civil rights.
Background
Horace James McMillan was the first African American physician practicing in the Santa Barbara, California, area in 1952. A tireless leader in the fight for civil rights, McMillan has made indelible marks in the community. As a local political activist at the front-line of the struggle for civil rights, McMillan's experience provides an invaluable and fascinating window to examine the evolution of American race relations, the tactics and strategies employed in the civil rights movement, and the real effects of federal civil rights policies at the level of local implementation.
