Ludlow Community Association Records, Series III

The Ludlow Community Association (f. 1957) is “the voice of Ludlow, articulating to the city governments and other agencies Ludlow’s concerns and desires.” The Ludlow Community Association (LCA) formed from a series of block meetings to discuss the stabilization of the demographically shifting community of Ludlow, a neighborhood in Cleveland and Shaker Heights, Ohio. The main task of the LCA during its conception was to persuade white people to buy homes in Ludlow in order to maintain a racially integrated community. The collection consists of annual reports, meeting minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, promotional material, committee and president reports, and various other records.
