 Creator:  Ludlow Community Association 
 Dates:  1957-1981 
 Abstract:  The Ludlow Community Association was founded in 1957 to maintain neighborhood stability as the Ludlow area of Shaker Heights, Ohio, became integrated. The group sponsored block clubs, established a real-estate clearing house to encourage white ownership of Ludlow homes, and worked to improve sanitation, traffic flow, building codes and recreation facilities for the area. By 1968 the group had achieved national recognition for its progress in neighborhood stabalization and integration. The group was also active in promoting integration in other suburbs. The collection consists of minutes, correspondence, newsletters, reports, financial materials, publicity files, and clippings. These records pertain to the quality of housing and integration in the suburban community of Shaker Heights, Ohio, including both apartments and single-family units. They also highlight the organizational structure of the group.

2Title:  Ludlow Community Association Records, Series III     
 Creator:  Ludlow Community Association 
 Dates:  1952-1995 
 Abstract:  The Ludlow Community Association (f. 1957) is "the voice of Ludlow, articulating to the city governments and other agencies Ludlow's concerns and desires." The Ludlow Community Association (LCA) formed from a series of block meetings to discuss the stabilization of the demographically shifting community of Ludlow, a neighborhood in Cleveland and Shaker Heights, Ohio. The main task of the LCA during its conception was to persuade white people to buy homes in Ludlow in order to maintain a racially integrated community. The collection consists of annual reports, meeting minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, promotional material, committee and president reports, and various other records.
