HISTORICAL NOTE
 

In 1954, Haddington was chosen as one of the demonstration areas in Philadelphia for the new federal Leadership Program which was directed towards the renewal of deteriorating residential neighborhoods. The Northeast Fellowship Council was approached by the city to be the community group involved in this project. By 1956 some area groups became disillusioned with the lack of progress and began to function independently of the NWFC.

The need to enlarge the target area soon became apparent and three units were established in the bounded by Market Street, Girard Avenue. 52nd and 56th Streets. These units joined to form the Haddington Leadership Organization and adopted the first Constitution and By-laws in January 1958. The project area continued to expand and in June 1969, HLO signed a contract with the redevelopment Authority to serve as the Project Area Committee for the Haddington Urban Renewal Area, which now extends 63rd Street.
 

COLLECTION OVERVIEW

The records of the Haddington Leadership Organization are arranged in one alphabetical series. The collection contains material from 1959 - 1975 but the bulk of the collection covers the period 1969 - 1972. Among the most significant material in the collection are the meetings of the Executive Board and Joint Staff meetings with the RDA; the material on Units One, Two and Three; the material relating to HLO's role as Project Area Committee in Haddington; a large collection of material on housing; committee and staff files, and files on miscellaneous projects and issues.
