expand/collapse Expand/collapse Scope and Content

These papers chiefly document the professional activities of Ralph McCallister from 1944 when he became director of programs and education at Chatauqua Institution until his retirement in 1972 from the Office of Medical Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Correspondence and papers from his years as director of the Adult Education Council of Chicago are at the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle. A much larger collection of his papers from Chautauqua are at Yale University.

There is some overlap among series, particularly between Series 5 and 6. Items were placed in the Series to which they seemed most important. A number of McCallister's professional colleagues later became personal friends and continued their correspondence with him. These letters can be found in Subseries 9.1.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 1. Chautauqua Institution, 1944-1985 and undated.

About 80 items.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 1.1. Correspondence, 1944-1985 and undated.

About 60 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Chiefly professional correspondence to and from McCallister relating to arranging the educational programs at Chautauqua, a summer educational institute near Jamestown, New York. Included are several letters to Karl Menninger who was a guest lecturer there.

Of interest are letters concerning incidents of McCarthyism that occurred at Chautauqua in March 1953, August-September 1954, and October December 1959. The 1959 incident was the printing in "News and Views," a publication of the National Layman's Council of the Church League of America edited by Edgar C. Bundy, of a smear against Chautauqua and a number of the lecturers, including Karl Menninger, Norman Cousins, Frank Porter Graham, Anna Lord Strauss, and others.

Also included are letters from McCallister to friends alleging racism and anti-Catholicism among members of the Board. These perceptions of McCallister in combination with his disagreement with management policies of the Board led to his resignation on January 12, 1961.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 3. Scientists' Committees, 1960-1963 and undated.

About 60 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

A few routine letters mingled with a quantity of typed, duplicated, or printed papers and brochures, all related to the Scientists' Committee for Radiation Information (incorporated May 1960, under sponsorship of American Association for the Advancement of Science), or to the National Conference for Scientific Information on Nuclear Age Problems, or to similar committees.

McCallister served as executive director of the National Conference from November 1962 to March 1963, and as acting director for a while thereafter. The National Conference sought to bring together representatives from scientists' committees all over the country.

The materials include some copies of Board minutes of the National Conference, slight correspondence, relevant monographs and brochures and bulletins; papers concerning programs of two meetings of the National Conference held in New York on 17-18 November 1962 and 16-17 February 1963; and typed formal requests for funding, addressed to the Carnegie Foundation, following each Conference, written by Jules Hersch, M.D., of the Rockefeller Institute. The requests for funding envisioned a Scientists Institute for Public Information that would provide the public with information on such problems as radioactive fallout, pesticides, air pollution, and detergents in water supplies.

Included is an undated typed statement (2 pages, carbon typescript), circa 17 February 1963, summarizing the purpose and work of the National Conference and its component groups, and the purposes of the "Scientists Institute for Public Information" at the time of its founding on 17 February, as well as a fuller press release and copies of newspaper clippings. There also are a few other papers from this period.

The items dated earlier than November 1962 appear to be monographs assembled for a kit, January 1963, for board members.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Series 4. National Folk Festival Association, Inc., 1961-1966 and Undated.

About 80 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Apparently an incomplete file from a period (about April-July 1963), when McCallister was negotiating with the Planning Committee of the Association about becoming the director or chief executive officer. The majority of the dated letters addressed to McCallister begin 22 April 1963, and end 16 July 1963. During this time McCallister was moving from New York City to Chapel Hill, N. C. L. G. Derthick was president of the Association.

A large part of this series consists of undated handwritten letters from Sarah Gertrude Knott, founder and longtime director of the Association, explaining to McCallister from her point of view the moves that board members were making in the process of forcing her out of power. Her letters were apparently written in late 1962 and the first half of 1963. During this period Ms. Knott sent various duplicated papers (mostly mimeographed matter) and printed ephemera concerning her work with the festival, 1961-1963. Among the materials are items about the Festival held in Covington, Kentucky, in May 1963; by-laws and other organizational papers; lists and programs; bulletins; and some items about the financial problems of the Association.

The correspondence and duplicated materials have been arranged in a chronological series as far as possible.

About 130 items.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 5.1. Correspondence, 1964-1967 and Undated.

About 120 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Chiefly professional correspondence concerning the operation of the Advancement School, where McCallister worked as coordinator of planning, and the Learning Institute of North Carolina, where he served as operations director, 1964-1966. The North Carolina Advancement School was a program developed under Governor Terry Sanford and his assistant John Ehle to determine and provide remedies for the causes of underachievement in North Carolina students. LINC, founded in 1964, was an outgrowth of this program. Its purpose was to be a coordinating body for experiments like the Advancement School and to conduct research that would help solve current problems in the North Carolina educational system.

Included is correspondence relating to various conferences McCallister attended. Notable examples are a letter, January 20, 1964, from Gov. Sanford requesting his presence at a program on the Advancement School, and a group of letters in July 1964 referring to the International Conference on the Impact of Educational Technology.

Also included are numerous letters in January and February 1966 from McCallister to Harold Howe, II, who left his position as director of LINC to become U. S. Commissioner of Education under President Johnson, and a few items to William Friday, president of UNC who served on the board of directors for LINC.

About 100 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Chiefly professional correspondence on the early development of the Regional Educational Laboratory for the Carolinas and Virginia, an educational research and development program funded by the U.S. Office of Education. RELCV was part of a network of educational laboratories across the United States.

Included are letters from August 1966 and August 1967 referring to yearly site visits and reviews by the U.S.O.E. and efforts to obtain funding. Also included is correspondence throughout the series about a program in which McCallister was involved for teaching standard English to preschool children from "non-standard" backgrounds through the use of television. This program was based on a project developed in American Samoa. Letters written in April and May 1969 referring to McCallister's dispute with management over the use of an anonymous critique of his program are also included. This controversy culminated in McCallister's being fired.
