Scope and Content

This addition to the papers of Kathryn H. Stone, ca. 1881(1921-1965)1988, of ca. 13,500 items, pertains to Mrs. Stone's service in the General Assembly of Virginia, her involvement in the League of Women Voters, her work in the planning of Reston, Virginia, and various topics of interest or concern including civil rights, desegregation, education, health, and women's issues. There are correspondence, papers, reports, newspaper clippings and other printed material, photographs, and bound volumes. Some of the "topics of interest" consist chiefly of, but are not limited to, newspaper clippings; there are also letters from constituents and legislators, official reports and resolutions, speeches, and other papers, representing her activities in support of particular concerns. Material on Afro-American issues may be found under various headings such as "Desegregation," "J. Lindsay Almond, Jr.: Massive Resistance," "Leon Dure," "Gray Commission," and "National Association for the Advancement of Colored People," among others.
