CCAC Archived Materials

In partnership with the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), we are in the process of creating an archive of CCAC documents spanning from our conception in 1956 through the present. The  UIC Library, Special Collections and University Archives, has served as a long standing repository and will be posting a complete inventory of CCAC documents in the near future as it modernizes its collections.  Recently, CCAC donated the documents outlined in the following “boxes.”  For access to any of these materials, please see Chicago Central Area Committee Collection.  For more information, please contact Pam Hackbart-Dean at phdean@uic.edu.
