Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note
The West Mount Airy Neighbors (WMAN) was founded in 1959 (later incorporated in 1989) to create and sustain West Mount Airy, a neighborhood in northwest Philadelphia, as a racially integrated community through the prevention of white flight and block busting, which were prevalent in Philadelphia at the time.

Since then, WMAN focused on generally maintaining and improving the quality of West Mount Airy as a place to live with particular attention to the physical environment, as well as neighborhood communication and understanding, community spirit, and government advocacy. West Mount Airy Neighbors Association sponsors two annual events: Mount Airy Day, which celebrates the past and present in Mount Airy, and the West Mount Airy Walk and Talk, an annual outdoor gathering of people participating in various activities in the neighborhoods of West Mount Airy.

Over the years in order to build awareness of neighborhood history, the association has published various materials which include a booklet, Mount Airy in Philadelphia: A Pioneering Community, a pamphlet, A Green Country Town in Philadelphia, and calendars, featuring historic sites of West Mount Airy. At one time a handbook of community resources was published. A joint activity of East Mount Airy Neighbors Association/West Mount Airy Neighbors Association has been the periodic publication of a community directory. WMAN published a monthly newsletter, West Mount Airy Neighbors from 1975 to 1982. From 1982 on the monthly newsletter became known as the Mount Airy Express, which is a joint publication with East Mount Airy Neighbors Association.
