Detailed Collection Information

Biographical Note Civil rights activist, education innovator, community service advocate, chamber music impresario, Samuel London Evans made his mark in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in multiple ways. Born on November 11, 1902, in Leon County, Florida, near Tallahassee, he was the youngest of six children of Penny and Reuben Evans, a Baptist minister, who died five months after Evans’ birth. At an early age, Evans learned both manual labor and racial intolerance. As a six-year old, he worked with his family on company-owned farms, harvesting cotton, tobacco

and other crops. By the age of nine, Evans witnessed five lynchings in a community he later described as one “where the value of life of Blacks, Jews and Catholics was equal to that of a rabbit.” He had no formal education as a child, moving with his family to Jacksonville around 1914, and eventually Tampa. At age seventeen, Evans took a job on a freighter bound for New York as a deckhand.

Evans stayed only three days in New York City before moving to Philadelphia to live with his brother Perry, who later became founding pastor of Faith Baptist Church in North Philadelphia. Evans continued working, including taking at job with Stark Piano Company, where he worked as a porter. This was Evans’ first exposure to classical music.

Evans worked to improve social and economic conditions for Philadelphia’s African American community, gaining local and national recognition for his efforts. His earliest initiative focused on North Philadelphia, the area in which he lived. In 1934, he founded the Philadelphia Youth Movement to help young people find employment. In 1940, he established his “Youth City” project, which he modeled after Boys Town in Nebraska, to give inner-city youths hands-on experience in urban government and civic and social responsibility. The program was not limited to boys, and among its most notable participants was Constance Clayton, who served as Superintendent of the Philadelphia Public School System from 1982 to 1993, becoming the first woman and first African American to receive the appointment. During the 1930s, Evans also picketed North Philadelphia stores that refused to hire Blacks and demonstrated against the Nazi activism brewing in his community.

In 1941, he received his first government appointment as Philadelphia Coordinator for Colored Activities for the U.S. Department of Physical Training in the Office of Civilian Defense. That same year Governor James H. Duff appointed Evans secretary of the State Athletic Commission, whose most significant oversight was the licensing and policing of the sport of boxing within Pennsylvania.

During the mid-1940s, he became a leader in Philadelphia’s consumer cooperative movement. He began as Director of the Extension Department of the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Federation. Its mission was continued by the Cooperative Education-Extension Service, with Evans serving as Director and then Executive Director.

The cooperative is where Evans likely first met Esther Weston King (1899-1996). Daughter of S. Burns Weston, founder of the Philadelphia Ethical Society, King was educated at Vassar and studied voice in Europe. While wealth afforded her the opportunity to spend her life as a philanthropist, she shared with Evans a commitment to community activism and to classical music. King worked with Evans at the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Federation before volunteering her services as treasurer of the Cooperative Education-Extension Service and Cooperative Town. During the next half-century, Evans and King continued to collaborate on a number of initiatives, with King occasionally providing financial support.

Around 1945, Evans began a course of study offered by New York University and the Foundation for Integrated Education entitled Frontier of Knowledge, Integrative Concepts in Science, Philosophy, and Education. In 1952, he introduced the program to Philadelphia at the Ethical Society, where he again collaborated with King. He later incorporated the concepts of

-2-

Frontier of Knowledge and integrative learning into the curriculum of his best-remembered initiative, the American Foundation for Negro Affairs (AFNA), an organization focused on preparing minority students to pursue educations in medicine, law, and business.

Also in the 1940s, Evans became chairman of the Board of Directors of the Pyramid Club. Located on Girard Avenue in North Philadelphia, the club was founded in 1937 for the purpose of providing Black professionals a place to cultivate social, cultural, and civic advancements.

During the 1960s and 1970s, Evans became a fixture in Philadelphia’s social, political, and cultural scenes. In 1963, he chaired the committee that brought 18,000 Philadelphians to the nation’s capital to join Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in a march for jobs and freedom. In 1965, Evans, received the first of approximately six appointments by Mayor James Tate. Tate appointed Evans to the newly formed Philadelphia Anti-Poverty Action Committee (PAAC), which was the city’s response to President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty initiative. By the summer of 1969, Evans was chairman of the entire PAAC operation, which was reorganized that year as the Philadelphia Anti-Poverty Action Commission.

In the late 1960s, Evans, organized a convention bringing Black leaders from across the country to meet in Philadelphia in order to catalog the progress of African Americans and chart ten year goals. The gathering, held September 9-13, 1968, was the founding of AFNA, which over the course of its near forty-year operation in Philadelphia (and for a time also in New Orleans) mentored students from seventh grade through graduate school. Esther Weston King joined the Philadelphia office in 1971 as a project planner and remained with AFNA until her death, serving as Treasurer, First Vice President, and President (with Evans as chairman and CEO).

In March 1971, Evans was named an officer of the Board of Directors of Philadelphia 1976 Bicentennial Corporation and later that year was hired as the corporation’s Executive Vice President. Evans spent the bicentennial year working on the national presidential election.

Starting around 1950, Evans near quarter-century of work as a concert manager, promoter,and producer included introducing Philadelphia audiences to local and international chamber orchestras, classical quartets and featured performances of musicians, operatic singers and a world-famous mime. Evans’ work as an impresario began with his oversight of the Philadelphia Coffee Concerts Committee and the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra Society. At both, King was again his colleague, chairing the former and serving as administrative associate of the latter. Around 1950, Evans was hired to manage the then-financially ailing Philadelphia Coffee Concerts Committee. The concerts were noted for their informal hotel venues and intermission servings of coffee and cake. Around 1961, while continuing his work with the Coffee Concerts, Evans helped establish the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra Society, with its concerts offered from October 29, 1961, through his final production on March 19, 1972. Evans and King resigned from the Coffee Concerts Committee in 1976. In recognition of his innovative work, Evans was made a member of the International Association of Concert Managers in 1965, becoming the first African American so elected.

Evans led AFNA and other organizations he later established to serve as “civic watchdogs and defenders of morality, equality, faith and social justice.” His most active groups were the Family of Leaders and the National Council of Public Auditors. Evans also interceded readily for

-3-

individuals seeking his help on matters such as job and housing discrimination, dismissal from school, debt, divorce, immigration and asylum, criminal records and parole, as well as less daunting legal problems, such as parking tickets.

Evans’ died on June 13, 2008, just five months shy of his 106th birthday. One week later, he was the first ever to lie in state at City Hall. Evans was predeceased by his wife Edna Hoye Evans (1907-1988). Born in Texas, Hoye was a pianist and teacher. They married in 1926. Evans was survived by Retha Maye Johnson Bright Kelly (1924-2010) the only daughter of Evans and Ethel Johnson. Kelly married twice--to James Bright and then to Richard Kelly and had four children. At the time of Evans’ death, a few sources noted that he also had one son, London Evans- Thompson. Evans and his wife Edna are buried in West Laurel Hill Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania.

Description of Collection

The Samuel L. Evans Papers document his work empowering and improving the lives of African Americans, particularly in Philadelphia, and his twenty-five year career as an impresario, introducing the city to chamber orchestras, operatic soloists and other talent. The collection includes information about some of Evans’ early municipal appointments and affiliations thatled to his continued influence in local and state politics and social services, including the establishment of his own community service and watchdog organizations and committees. His tenure as manager of the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra Society and the Philadelphia Coffee Concerts Committee is also documented here. Correspondence, newspaper clippings, and writings by Evans are the most abundant sources. Photographs, reports, printed ephemera, legal and reference documents, audiovisual material and memorabilia comprise most of the remaining documentation, along with certificates, resolutions, plaques and other honorary objects.

Researchers should note that this collection includes material pertaining to education and to the medical and legal professions in general, with occasional references to the American Foundation for Negro Affairs (AFNA). The records of that organization, Evans’ most recognized and celebrated initiative, are a separate collection.

Separated Material All books were removed, and a selected number of volumes are cataloged in the collections of the Temple University Libraries.

Processing Information Collection processed in 2016 by Bertha Adams, Project Archivist, and finding aid prepared in 2017.

This collection was received with minimal original order. The Evans’ papers were organized, primarily to undo the regrouping of material by subject headings imposed during the late 1990s or early 2000s by an AFNA staff member that was determined to be misleading or inaccurate. A

-6-

significant amount of loose papers also needed to be identified and organized. Much of that material now comprises Series 3: Name and subject files and Subseries 4.1: Imposed chronology files. Earlier documentation was processed as Series 1: Early activism and Series 2: Career as impresario.

Evans received numerous requests from individuals seeking his assistance on personal matters, including legal, financial, domestic relations, and employment issues. A sampling of such materials, primarily those papers documenting Evans’ intercession, were retained and restricted where necessary.

Series 1: Early activism, 1935-1983, undated

Series 1: Early activism, 1935-1983, undated, identifies the various initiatives Evans embraced to bring opportunity and give voice to Philadelphia’s African American community. Most precede his founding of the American Foundation for Negro Affairs (AFNA), which focused on education, and are separate from his role as impresario, whereby he introduced all of Philadelphia to local and international chamber orchestrations and voices. Although the extent of material measures only four linear feet, it outlines, in various degrees, Evans’ contributions to the social, economic and political landscape of the city over the first forty of his near seventy years of civic service and civil rights activism. The number of mayoral appointments identified here also underscores the City’s high regard for Evans’ input and influence. Documentation consists primarily of correspondence, minutes and printed material, along with financial papers, proposals, transcripts, clippings, legal documents and draft writings. The amount of material varies, with the earliest organizations and programs having the least. For additional news coverage, which was not always favorable of Evans during these years, see Series 5: Clippings.

The series is arranged in six subseries: Subseries 1.1 Cooperatives; Subseries 1.2 Pyramid Club; Subseries 1.3 Philadelphia Anti-Poverty Action Committee; Subseries 1.4 Bicentennial Corporation; Subseries 1.5 Carter presidential campaign; and Subseries 1.6 Other public service initiatives and affiliation.

Subseries 1.1: Cooperatives, 1944-1970, undated

Subseries 1.1: Cooperatives, 1944-1970, undated, documents how Evans, by the mid-1940s, took a leading role in Philadelphia’s consumer cooperative movement, beginning with the Extension Department of the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Federation and then the Cooperative Education-Extension Service. Documentation consists primarily of correspondence, stock certificate records, and printed material. In regard to the latter, there are a number of published brochures and article reprints describing various cooperatives, including those in Europe which served as models for the American counterparts. There are also organizational documents, minutes, forms and financial records.

In addition to the offices noted above, the Logan Study Group and Cooperative Town, Inc. are documented here. The education office supported the local study clubs, which in turn prepared residents to open and operate local cooperative food stores. Cooperative Town, Inc. operated the first food store to open in a predominately Black area of the city. The membership applications offer some demographic data of the approximately 200 individuals who pledged to patronize and

personally cooperate with the Cooperative Town business, noting address, occupation, age and marital status in addition to a pledged number of shares. The first applicant was Evans, who on July 3, 1946, promised to buy 20 shares. Also of note are the two letters written to Evans in 1945 by Ethel Duncan. According to news accounts, Duncan chaired the faculty of the Cooperative Education-Extension Service and later was appointed dean to the Consumer Cooperatives Institute (Philadelphia). In her correspondence to Evans, Duncan takes up the need for “colored” teachers and recommends testing teachers in Philadelphia’s public schools in their knowledge of “Negro history.” She even includes sample test questions. Her name also appears in the minutes of the first meeting of the Logan Study Group. Both she and Evans spoke to the group on January 26, 1946.

Most of the financial documents in this subseries were maintained by Esther Weston King. In addition to her time, King lent financial support to the cooperatives as these papers document. Of particular note is the lease collateral agreement executed in 1947, which secured the building for the food store in exchange for King’s $5,000 loan. King continued her involvement with coops into at least the mid-1960s, serving as treasurer of the Germantown Cooperative Association.

Series 5: Clippings includes newspaper coverage (1945-1947) of the cooperative movement in Philadelphia and the high degree of participation among the city’s Black population. Evans is quoted in most of the articles. Of particular note are the (oversized) May and June 1948 clippings about Evans receiving a scholarship to travel to Europe to study cooperatives, trade unions and the political and social structure of various European countries. A desktop embosser creating the seal of the Cooperative Education Extension Service, with the date of 1947, is one of the objects included in Series 8: Other materials.

Subseries 1.2: Pyramid Club. 1953-1966, undated

Subseries 1.2: Pyramid Club. 1953-1966, undated, documents Evans’ tenure as a director of this local institution, established for Black professionals. While the date Evans joined is not documented here, the earliest correspondence indicates that he was serving as chairman of the Board of Directors by at least 1953. As such, he invited national leaders such as former President Harry S. Truman and Bernard Baruch, financier and advisor to Presidents Woodrow Wilson and FDR, to participate in honorary dinners and forums.

The most successful and best documented event Evans organized was the controversial presentation of the club’s 1954 achievement award to J. Robert Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer was one of the lead scientists in the development of the first atomic bomb, which was used against Japan in World War II. The selection of Oppenheimer generated praise and opposition as the physicist had recently been stripped of his security clearance by the Atomic Energy Commission for alleged association with “known subversives.” (Later writings pointed to his lobbying against nuclear proliferation and a nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union as the more likely cause.) Evans wrote about the events surrounding the decision to honor Oppenheimer in an unpublished account, “Nothing to Fear: an Incident of the McCarthy Era.” The earliest draft, which includes original correspondence is included here and makes up the bulk of documentation. The typescript refers to Evans’ correspondence with Albert Einstein, who praised the club’s actions and sent his brief remarks to be read at the dinner. Unfortunately, Einstein’s original papers are missing from the collection, with only photocopies and typed excerpts in their place. The photocopies are included in the general correspondence folder. (The same holds for the brief letter from Harry

Truman noted above.) What appears to be the second annotated draft is also included here. It is incomplete. Two later typescripts, neither of which is annotated, are included in Series 6: Writings. One notes a copyright of 1980. A chronology of events and a program from the award dinner complete the documentation.

The remaining materials consist of various papers for a 1962 dinner honoring Philadelphia Mayor Richardson Dilworth and U.S. Senator Joseph Clark, as well as plans for their candidacy in the coming election, and miscellaneous financial and legal papers dating to the time of the club’s financial problems and ultimate dissolution, circa 1964.

Arrangement begins with the correspondence folder, followed by documentation of the Oppenheimer dinner and miscellaneous financial, legal and other papers.

Subseries 1.3: Philadelphia Anti-Poverty Action Committee (PAAC), 1965-1973, undated

Subseries 1.3: Philadelphia Anti-Poverty Action Committee (PAAC), 1965-1973, undated, documents Evans’ first appointment by James Tate, Philadelphia’s mayor from 1962 to 1972. According to a study published in 2008, it was Evans who devised PAAC’s structure, particularly the appointments of the Community Action Councils. These neighborhood-based councils were the only in the country allowing the poor to select their own representatives. Evans initially joined PAAC as chairman of the Sub-Committee on Community Action Councils. By the summer of 1969, he was chairman of the entire operation.

Most of the material in this subseries pertains to the organization and administration of PAAC. This includes correspondence, city legislation, and certain writings. Transcripts from two public hearings held to discuss PAAC by-laws and charter as well as a 1970 directory of member organizations also document its operational aspects. Fifteen newsletters, four press releases, and two funding proposals give some idea of the actions the organization supported to alleviate poverty. PAAC also had its share of political power plays as made evident by the documents identified here as “litigation,” which comprise nearly one-third of the material. Although Evans is cited in certain papers, the lawsuits were initiated after his departure. At issue was whether PAAC was a city or independent entity, which would in turn determine if then Mayor Rizzo had the right to appoint a new director to PAAC. The legal documents pertain to three court cases. The final decision was in favor of the City and the Mayor. The half-dozen news clippings cover both the politics and the programs. Additional media coverage can be found in Series 5: Clippings. Barbara Weems is also represented in this subseries, serving as PAAC’s Executive Director. She resigned in March 1969 to be the first Executive Director of AFNA.

Subseries 1.4: Philadelphia 1976 Bicentennial Corporation, 1970-1983, undated

Subseries 1.4: Philadelphia 1976 Bicentennial Corporation, 1970-1983, undated, underscores both the progress and pushback surrounding Philadelphia’s bicentennial plans during Evans’ brief tenure with the corporation. In March 1971 Evans was named an officer of the Board of Directors of Philadelphia 1976 Bicentennial Corporation and later that year was hired as the corporation’s Executive Vice President, contracted to serve for six years with an annual salary of $65,000. By this time, plans to celebrate the country’s two-hundredth anniversary, which was initiated by the U.S. Congress in 1966, had become a tumultuous and contested debate. The vision of Philadelphia once again serving as the site of a national world’s fair, as it did for the country’s centennial celebration in 1876, was rejected, replaced instead with a call for locally sponsored commemorative events to be held throughout the country. Mayor Frank Rizzo reversed the City’s plans accordingly, which resulted in Evans’ termination, effective May 31, 1972. Evans initiated litigation seeking redress from the City for the termination of his contract, and after unsuccessful appeals by the City was awarded $233,000 in damages.

Much of the correspondence and other papers; namely, proposals and reports, document the ideas considered and operational steps taken by the corporation. The clippings from 1971 make evident the local tension over the selection of a site for the exposition/world’s fair and whether such an event should be held at all. There is also one folder of a few 1972 articles. Additional news coverage can be found in Series 5: Clippings in the “various” folders holding multiple articles and grouped by year of publication. Also included here is the final report by Philadelphia ’76, Inc., the entity Mayor Rizzo established in place of the Bicentennial Corporation. Published in 1977, its recap of events does not include Evans’ participation.

The remaining material is filed by subject, beginning with the two initiatives under Evans’ charge—the development of an International Center for Black History and Culture and a visit by Nigerian leaders, seeking information and ideas for a world cultural festival they planned to host in the near future. Correspondence and a project proposal and overview document the former, which was never realized. Working papers for a luncheon and dinner that were held in May 1972 for the Nigerian delegation document the latter. Two years later, Evans hosted another visit by Nigerian leaders, coming to view an art exhibition that tied in with their Second World Black and African Festival of Arts and Culture. Documentation of that event is included in this series, Subseries 1.6: Other public service initiatives and affiliations.

The last subject is well-documented and pertains to the litigation Evans initiated seeking redress from the City of Philadelphia for the termination of his contract. Most of the legal documents pertain to the initial action Evans filed with the City’s Court of Common Pleas in 1972. The final “litigation” folder pertains to Evans suing the law firm that originally handled his case against

Subseries 1.5: Carter presidential campaign, 1976-1977, undated

Subseries 1.5: Carter presidential campaign, 1976-1977, undated, documents Evans’ most active involvement in a national election, that being Jimmy Carter’s presidential bid of 1976. Evans was active in raising funds and building support among the Black community of Philadelphia. Correspondence and financial reports document his oversight of the fundraising initiative, “The Committee of One Thousand” along with the assistance of Esther King during the summer months of 1976. The “master list of leaders” (so titled during processing) pertains to Evans’ work among African American voters. Housed in a binder three inches thick, these numerous lists identify individuals of civic, religious, occupational and other groups within Philadelphia’s minority community. The most comprehensive narrative of campaign events held in the Philadelphia area is the “Post Election Report,” also housed in a binder (as is its duplicate). The report is more of a scrapbook, comprised of analyses, correspondence and photocopies of clippings and photographs. Remaining documentation consists of several clippings, printed material and miscellaneous papers. Additional news coverage of the campaign is included in Series 5: Clippings. Evans’ later contact with Carter, as well as ephemera of the 1977 inaugural celebrations and White House dinners, are in Series 3: Name and subject files.

This subseries is arranged by document type, beginning with correspondence.

Subseries 1.6: Other public service initiatives and affiliations, 1935-1938, 1951-1974, 1983, undated

Subseries 1.6: Other public service initiatives and affiliations, 1935-1938, 1951-1974, undated, reflects some of Evans’ other activities for which documentation is limited. Correspondence, minutes, financial papers and printed material comprise the bulk of material, touching upon his activities between 1940 and 1974. The late date of 1983 reflects the year Evans’ copyrighted reproductions of an autographed proclamation signed by participants in the 1963 March on Washington. The original autographed proclamation is missing from this collection.

In the chronological order of Evans’ involvement, the ten organizations and initiatives documented are: (1) Youth City/Philadelphia Youth Movement. According to the scant amount of material here, Evans founded the Philadelphia Youth Movement in 1934 and served as its president. He established the “Youth City” project in 1940. The project, along with Evans’ earlier work with Negro youth, is featured in a 1941 article included in Series 5: Clippings; (2) Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission. Evans was appointed secretary by the governor in 1946 and served as such until October 1948; (3) Committee for Integrated Education of Philadelphia. This initiative sought to bring to Philadelphia over the course of two years a series of lectures offering an integrated concept of science, philosophy and education, beginning in 1952 at the Ethical Society. Most of the material consists of lecture flyers and related publications and appear to have been compiled by Esther Weston King, Evan’s longtime colleague, was a co-chair. Her recollection of the importance of the program is documented in the “Philadelphia Award” folder in Series 3: Name and subject files. (4) Ethical Society of Philadelphia. Evans’ involvement once again was based on his association with King. Evans was a member of the committee established in 1955 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the society’s founder, who was King’s father. The following year he chaired a memorial concert. Both were fundraising events; (5) Woman’s Christian Alliance. Established in 1919, the original mission of the alliance was to provide housing for “young Negro women migrating to Philadelphia in search of employment during World War I.” It redirected its program a few years later, becoming a child placement agency. Evans was elected to the Board of Directors in April 1960 and served until at least 1962. Thirty-three years later, the organization, operating as the Women’s Christian Alliance, honored Evans for his life’s work. Documentation from this later period is in Series 3: Name and subject files; (6) March on Washington, August 28, 1963. Evans was chairman of the Philadelphia March on Washington Committee. Series 5: Clippings includes additional documentation of the event and Evans’ interaction with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; (7) Philadelphia General Hospital. Evans was appointed by Mayor Tate to the hospital’s Board of Trustees in January 1968. He resigned in December 1971. The municipal hospital provided medical treatment for those often refused at other facilities because of race, ethnicity, low income or lack of insurance. See also Series 5: Clippings; (8) Mayor’s Committee on Municipal

Hospital Services. This appointment no doubt dovetailed with that of PGH. Evans sat on the Steering Committee. From the dates of documentation, his tenure may not have been much longer than eight months in 1969; (9) Greater Philadelphia Sports Development Council. With the exception of a newsletter and a duplicate set of minutes and Board of Directors list, these were the files of Frederick H. Osborn, Jr., the Council’s Executive Secretary. Evans was a director, serving as one of the members-at-large, no later than 1968. The Council was established to support track and field athletics, particularly for the benefit of the “less privileged young people of the city;” (10) Citizens’ Committee to Save the Get Set Program. Evans served as the chairman of the committee organized to keep the federally-funded pre-kindergarten program operating after the government reduced its funding by more than half. In addition to the meeting announcement referenced here, related correspondence is included in Series 3; (11) Philadelphia Tribune’s 85th anniversary celebration, November 23, 1969. According to the poster, which is the only documentation of the event, Evans directed all special activities; and (12) Southeastern Regional Exhibition. North American Zone, Second World Black and African Festival of Art and Culture. As chairman of the Southeastern Region, Evans oversaw the creative (visual) arts exhibition held at the University of Pennsylvania Museum in January 1974. The event was one of the regional festivals vying to be selected for the Second World Black and African Festival of Art and Culture to be held the following year in Lagos, Nigeria. The Nigerian delegation’s visit to Philadelphia to view the exhibit, which is documented here, was the third visit Evans organized. Nigerian representatives came in 1971 and 1972 to meet with members of the Bicentennial Corporation to gather information about the American exposition in preparation of their country’s arts and culture festival. Documentation of the earlier visits is included in the Bicentennial Corporation records, Subseries 1.4 of this series. A poster for Festac’75, the arts and culture festival held in Lagos from November 22 to December 20, 1975, is included in Series 8: Photographs, audiovisual and other materials.

Evans also served as secretary of the Tanner G. Duckrey Memorial Fund Committee. During his two-year tenure, he recorded the minutes of eight committee meetings held from January 1958 to January 1960. The minutes are bound in a volume of minutes of the American Foundation for Negro Affairs (AFNA). The volume is included in that record group.

Arrangement is alphabetical by name of organization.

Much of the

documentation is printed material, in the form of programs, fliers and posters. Correspondence, clippings, financials records and photographs comprise most of the remaining material.

This series is arranged in four subseries: Subseries 2.1 Chamber music concerts; Subseries 2.2: Other events; Subseries 2.3 Carolyn Stanford; and Subseries 2.4 General files

Subseries 2.1: Chamber music concerts, 1953-1976, undated

Subseries 2.1: Chamber music concerts, 1953-1976, undated, documents Evans’ tenure as manager of the Philadelphia Coffee Concerts Committee and the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra Society. At both, Esther Weston King was his colleague. The correspondence pertaining to the Coffee Concerts divides almost equally between Evans and King, which is unsurprising considering her position as chairman. Other documentation consists primarily of printed material and legal documents; namely contracts with artists and agents and license agreements with the City of Philadelphia. Newspaper coverage of the concerts is included in the “Clippings” folders in Subseries 2.3 General files.

More extensively documented is the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra Society, which Evans helped establish around 1961 while continuing his work with the Coffee Concerts. Although Evans was one of the founding members and directors of the Society, this series has no documentation of its genesis. Only a few clippings report on its first concert, held at the Academy of Music on October 29, 1961. Most of the material pertains to tracking ticket sales, soliciting contributions, scheduling performances and drafting programs and press releases. An initiative to bring more students to orchestral performances via a matching fund program is another topic described in some correspondence, notes and clippings. The scrapbook entitled “1964-1965 season” consists of newspaper clippings reporting on the original chamber orchestra’s final season. Most of the posters included here promote the performances of later seasons, which featured international chamber orchestras. Evans resigned from the Society in 1972 in order to assume his role as Executive Vice President of the 1976 Bicentennial Corp. (He and King resigned from the Coffee Concerts Committee in 1976.) The subseries begins with Coffee Concert files, followed by those of the Chamber Orchestra Society. Within each subset, folders are arranged alphabetically by document type.

Subseries 2.2: Other events, 1959-1970, undated

Subseries 2.2: Other events, 1959-1970, undated, documents several other productions presented by Evans. Those well-documented include two concerts given by the African- American mezzo-soprano Grace Bumbry in 1962 and 1964. Both were fundraisers held at the Academy of Music. The 1962 concert was Bumbry’s Philadelphia premiere, held just months after her performance at the White House. Correspondence, photographs (included some from her White House concert), printed material and financial records maintained by King document both events. Evans also chaired the committee responsible for the musical extravaganza presented at the Philadelphia Civic Center as part of the 97th annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA). A significant amount of correspondence was exchanged in the ten months leading up to the November 1969 event. Other events are documented to a lesser extent. The program “The Sound of Freedom,” presented by the Greater Philadelphia Citizen Committee in 1964, included several musical performances, with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was the event’s featured speaker. (For papers of Evans’ brief service as chairman of a concert committee for the Philadelphia Ethical Society, see Series 1: Early activism, Subseries 1.6: Other public service initiatives and affiliations.

Subseries 2.3: Carolyn Stanford, 1956-1967, undated

Subseries 2.3: Carolyn Stanford, 1956-1967, undated, pertains to a particular artist rather than a particular event. In 1956, two years before graduating from the Curtis Institute of Music (Philadelphia), Carolyn Stanford, an African American who grew up just outside of Philadelphia, sang as guest soloist at the Coffee Concerts November event. She performed at another Coffee Concert the year she graduated, and then went on to win international acclaim as a mezzo- soprano. Over the course of eight years as she traveled through Europe between 1957 and 1963, Stanford maintained correspondence with Evans and King. Evans featured Stanford twice more in Philadelphia, in 1964 and 1968. This small subseries is arranged by document type, beginning with correspondence.

Subseries 2.4: General files, 1954-1975, undated, consists of folders identified by document type, most of which pertain to more than one of the programs described above. Clippings, photographs and scrapbooks with both are the primary materials. Although the events depicted in most of the 8x10 prints are unidentified and undated, Evans and others are readily identifiable. A number of them depict Evans and King working together. The enlarged photographs appear to be publicity shots of various musicians. A photocopy of the certificate issued in 1965 signifying

Series 3: Name and subject files, 1949-2007, bulk 1979-2007, undated

Series 3: Name and subject files, 1949-2007, undated, identifies most of the contacts and causes Evans cultivated and championed primarily over the years following his early activism and impresario periods and concurrent with his oversight of AFNA. Extending 16 linear feet, it is the largest series in the collection. The most prevalent material types are correspondence, reports, reference material, usually in the form of web page printouts, as well as mailing lists and organizational lists and directories, either published or compiled by Evans’ staff. Clippings, writings by Evans and others, legal documents and project presentation papers and drawings are some of the other materials comprising the series. Series 4: Chronological files also contains correspondence pertaining to many of the personal and organizational names identified here and should therefore be consulted by corresponding date(s) of material.

Whether to garner support for an initiative or candidate or to dispense advice or admonition, Evans wrote regularly to local, state and national politicians and religious leaders. Other correspondents essential to his agenda of social improvement included educators, health professionals, artists, activists, lawyers, judges, federal agency officials, leaders of national associations and organizers of international forums, particularly those strengthening relations

between America and Africa. Evans also received numerous letters from those he championed, the ordinary citizens, who sought his counsel or support—from job recommendations to start-up businesses or organizations, particularly those that supported the African-American community.

This series also includes materials generated and filed by the organizations Evans established outside of AFNA and its affiliates. These are: the Atonement Foundation, Ecumenical Church and Community Cathedral, Family of Leaders, National Civilian Volunteer Defense Security Council, National Council of Public Auditors and the Nationality Council, which began as the National Council of Nationalities. Documentation includes descriptions or statements of purpose, resolutions and releases, minutes and other meeting materials, and member lists. In addition to such material and of special note are the February 1984 meeting transcript and report generated by a special committee of the Family of Leaders. The committee was charged with receiving complaints from individuals claiming the I-Team, an investigative group of reporters for local KYW-TV, was focusing an inordinate and disproportionate amount of its reporting on Philadelphia’s Black community. Related material includes a petition Evans filed with the FCC to revoke the license of KYW-TV 3, which is in the folder entitled “Federal Communications Commission.” Another petition—the type circulated to collect signatures—charging KYW-TV3 with discrimination in its reporting and hiring practices is included in the subset of folders filed under “Petition.” Additional material pertaining to the I-Team charges is included in Series 6: Writings and Series 5: Clippings. In Series 8 there are a number of video tapes of other organizational activities; namely dinner meetings of the Family of Leaders and one VHS tape pertaining to the National Council of Public Auditors. AFNA Records include documentation of three other organizations founded by Evans, each having missions in support of AFNA.

Evans also called public attention to foodborne illnesses (due to lack of inspections) and the illegal use of human subjects in research—both of which he accused the City of Philadelphia of fostering in 1993 and 1999, respectively. Both subjects are documented in this series, with detailed folder titles identifying key individuals or government offices, along with document type. Documentation of an international conference on HIV and AIDS that Evans organized in 1989 is included in the AFNA Records, as an AFNA-related initiative.

Other topical files identify subjects and sources Evans used to monitor education, employment, religion, family values and women’s issues. Examples of documentation include lists of local ward leaders and zones, reference material pertaining to state and federal programs and legislation, census records, wage statistics, college financial aid and scholarship listings and compilations of historical and contemporary African-American and African leaders.

Certain other topics were identified during processing in order to group together similar subject matter. The subgroup of “Litigation” files pertain to the several occasions Evans took his grievances to court for wrongdoings made to him personally. Other personal matters, such as Evans’ tax returns, estate and will, are filed as “Evans, Samuel L” with appropriate subtitles. The “biographical packets,” of which there are 16 different sets, consist of photocopies of correspondence with various dignitaries and other well-known figures, clippings, concert

programs, biographical profiles and other writings, as well as honorary certificates. Most of the packets were pre-packaged in envelopes and no doubt intended as mailing attachments or handouts Evans referred to “as record of my living and being for your files.”

Arrangement is alphabetical, with a subset of restricted folders at the end.

Research access restriction

Evans acted upon numerous requests from individuals seeking his assistance on legal, financial and other personal matters. For privacy and confidentiality concerns, such files are restricted for seventy-five years after the last dated document in each file. With proof of identity, individuals may access their own file prior to that release date. In addition, researchers may request the files of those individuals that are deceased.
