Laubach Literacy International Supplemental Papers

The Adult Education History Project

Based on Information in the Syracuse University Library Archives

Translated for the WWW by Roger Hiemstra




                         (1991 addition)


The 1991 addition to the Laubach Literacy International Collection

follows the same order as the May 1990 finding aid. The only change

is the addition of Laubach Literacy Action [LLA] as a heading.

Laubach Literacy Action is the successor to the National

Affiliation for Literacy Advance [NALA]. The inclusive dates of the

1991 addition are 1932-1991, with the bulk of the material falling

between 1976-1986.  The addition length is 16 linear feet including

14 Hollinger boxes and 2 packages of motion pictures. The entire

Laubach Literacy International Collection is numbered in

consecutive order. This addition is contained in boxes 446-459 and

packages 1 and 2. For more information on material included in the

Laubach Collection please check the two previous finding aids.
