Scope and Content of the Records

From the Collection:

The "History of Organization" reveals that the Atlanta Education Association had several names during the period covered by these records, and that it was for thirty-seven years a local union affiliated through the American Federation of Teachers with the American Federation of Labor, the Atlanta Federation of Trades, and the Georgia Federation of Labor. Since the adoption of its present name in 1967, however, the Atlanta Education Association has been affiliated with the National Education Association and the Georgia Education Association.

These Records, therefore, primarily document the activities of the APSTA from 1918 to its demise in 1956. The files which span the years 1957 to 1970, likewise, reflect the activities of the Atlanta Teachers Association and then, beginning in 1967, the Atlanta Education Association.

The Records are organized into Parts I and II. Part I is the larger of the two parts and consists of five record series. Part II consists of two record series. The Records are completed by a small amount of oversized material and some photographs. Pamphlets, periodicals, bylaws, and proceedings included in the Records have been filed with like material in the department's Printed Collections. The seven record series, the oversized items, and the photographs are described separately on the following pages, while the items housed in the Printed Collections are only summarized.
