BACKGROUND

The West Philadelphia Corporation was organized in 1959 by the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel Institute of Technology, Presbyterian Hospital, Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy. The Corporation was modeled on the University Circle Development Foundation in Chicago and the Southeast Chicago Commission.

The institutions were united by their common interest in West Philadelphia in general, and the University City area in particular. The common interest was described as "the need for elbow room and a more healthful campus environment." The goal of the Corporation was to make University City a satisfactory residential environment and to allow it to fulfill it's potential as a center of private research.

The records of the Corporation have been arranged to reflect the organization and program of the Corporation as closely as possible and thus are divided into series as follows;
  • Series I : Administration
  • Series II : Finances, Funding and Contributions
  • Series III : Commercial and Institutional Development
  • Series IV : Community and Residential Development
  • Series V : Health
  • Series VI : Public Education
  • Series VII : Special Activities
  • Series VIII : General File
  • Series IX : Organizations
Series I - Administration: Contains material relating to the organization and administration of the Corporation. Included are Annual and special reports, Board of Director's meetings, individual board files, Executive Committee meetings, program material and readers files, which consist mainly of correspondence and also contains general Corporation-related material.

Series II - Finances, Funding and Contributions: Contains material relating to the financial activities of the Corporation, such as budget material, financial statements, finance campaigns and contributors' correspondence.

Series III - Commercial and Institutional Development: One of the goals of the Corporation was to develop the University City area commercially and to make it a research center by creating and attracting new businesses and institutions. The materials relevant to this goal are contained in this series. Among them are the 1965 Commercial Study, made for the Redevelopment Authority; files on the University City Urban Renewal Units, where the bulk of institutional development was carried out; and files on the Regional Development Laboratory and University City Science Center.

Series IV - Community and Residential Development: Contains material related to the development of University City as a better community in which to live. Among the files included are those of various residential programs sponsored by the Corporation, including housing, crime prevention, the Greater University City Beautification Committee and other residential, cultural, recreational and beatification materials.

Series V - Health: Contains materials related to the health program of the Corporation. These consist chiefly of the West Philadelphia Community Mental Health Consortium files but also includes material on the University of Pennsylvania Student Health Project and the AD Hoc Committee on Health Planning.

Series VI - Public Education: Consists of material pertaining to the Corporation's goal of improving education in the University City area and includes the files of the Universities Related Schools Program, the Motivation Program at West Philadelphia High School and University City High School.

Series VII - Special Activities: Contains material pertaining to activities of the Corporation which do not come under the other program areas, such as the publication of the University City Calendar and Newsletter, the co-sponsorship of various Community Conferences, and the sponsorship of Spring Bus Tour and University City Walking Tours.

Series VIII - General: Contains miscellaneous Corporation material or Corporation material which is of a routine nature or does not come under any of the other areas of work.

Series VI - Organizations: To carry out it's program the Corporation worked closely with many organizations; the pertinent material is contained in this series. Among the materials are records from the City of Philadelphia, U.S. Government and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Community Associations and West Philadelphia Corporation member institutions.

BACKGROUND

The West Philadelphia Corporation was organized in 1959 by the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel Institute of Technology, Presbyterian Hospital, Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy. The Corporation was modeled on the University Circle Development Foundation in Chicago and the Southeast Chicago Commission.

The institutions were united by their common interest in West Philadelphia in general, and the University City area in particular. The common interest was described as "the need for elbow room and a more healthful campus environment." The goal of the Corporation was to make University City a satisfactory residential environment and to allow it to fulfill it's potential as a center of private research.

The records of the Corporation have been arranged to reflect the organization and program of the Corporation as closely as possible and thus are divided into series as follows;
