Minutes of committee to study trends in racial prejudice and to make recommendations for improvements.
In the fall of 1944, Mayor Roger D. Lapham appointed a civic unity committee of sixteen members to advise the mayor in "smoothing out any dissensions which might arise because of racial tensions." Maurice Harrison served as chairperson. The volunteers met regularly in 1944 but not much in 1946. The committee went out of existence with the end of Lapham's term, at the end of 1947.
