1Title:  Hough Area Development Corporation Records, Series II     
 Creator:  Hough Area Development Corporation 
 Dates:  1983-1989 
 Abstract:  The Hough Area Development Corporation (f. 1967) was formed in the wake of the Hough riots by DeForest Brown in conjunction with African American professionals and neighborhood leaders to aid in bringing economic prosperity to the Hough neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio. Dedicated to African American self-determination, the group initially met in secret in order to prevent competition for dollars and outside attempts to control it. The group promoted African American business entrepreneurship and better housing. The collection consists of board minutes, reports, correspondence, audits, and newspaper clippings. The collection pertains to the final years of the organization's existence, when local financial support eroded and the Office of Community Services of the United States Department of Health and Human Services obtained its assets.
