Abstract
The National Association of Social Workers, Los Angeles Area and California Chapters records consist of meeting minutes, committee reports, memorandums, and newsletters, produced by and for the social work community in California, 1955-1998. The records document the creation of the Los Angeles Area chapter of the NASW and the California Council in the 1950s; the activities of various committees and sections, including Children and Family Services, Nominating, Program, and Group Work; and the creation and activities of the Greater California Chapter in the 1970s (a consolidation of 13 area chapters). The records contain a large number of both chapters' newsletters, which make up the bulk of the records.
