Abstract The UAW provided the most continuing support for the CCAP, a coalition of persons and organizations concerned with poverty problems. Walter Reuther was chairman. In 1969, CCAP merged with the Center for Community Change. The CCAP established a national training program, a Citizens Advocate Center, published poverty information, and was involved in other activities focused on poverty.
Abstract The papers of Walter Reuther reflect his career with the UAW from its beginning, although the documentation for the pre‑presidential period is less complete. In addition to UAW material, there are extensive files relating to his work as an officer of the CIO, the AFL‑CIO and the ALA. In addition, there is considerable material relating to international labor organizations, international affairs, other labor unions, organizations of various kinds and his work in the area of public affairs.
