Abstract

Faith Rich (1909-1990) was a white community activist, educator and volunteer with numerous organizations including the Chicago Westside Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), the Independent Voters of Illinois (IVI), the 15th Place Block Club, the Literacy Council of Chicago and local PTAs. She focused her organizing efforts on issues of civil rights, desegregation of schools and neighborhoods, equality in education, racism and the effect of urban renewal on local communities and especially, her own North Lawndale neighborhood in Chicago. Her collection contains her voluminous correspondence with family, friends and fellow activists along with meeting materials from social justice organizations and a sizable library of publications that document Chicago’s urban renewal initiatives from the 1950s-1970s.

Biographical Note

Faith Rich (1909-1990), née Baldwin, was a white community activist, educator and civil rights advocate. She was born in Vermont in 1909 to a family of farmers. She received a bachelor’s degree from University of Vermont and a doctoral degree in Classics from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania in 1934 but was unable to publish her PhD thesis until 1943. She married fellow Vermont resident, Theodore Freeling Rich, or Ted, in the mid-1930s and joined him in Chicago where he had been completing his graduate work at the University of Chicago.

Upon arriving in Chicago in the 1930s, Rich was hired by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) to create a farm journal, but soon found herself organizing laundry workers for the International Ladies’ Garment Workers Union (ILGWU). During this time, she became acquainted with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Rich’s active membership with the NAACP began around 1945 and lasted until her death in 1990. She served in a variety of roles for the local organization, most notably on the Education Committee that she chaired in 1956-1957 at the time that her landmark study, De Facto Segregation in Chicago Public Schools, was released. Additional initiatives included the Textbook Committee’s research and proposed revisions in school textbooks in 1946-1947 to remove bias and better reflect contributions made by African Americans, Catholics, Jews and other groups.

Rich’s mission to achieve racial justice and equality led to her participation with a wide range of other community organizations and projects over the course of her life, especially with regard to issues of education and urban renewal. She served as a member of the George W. Collins High School’s Local School Council, on the board of the Literacy Council of Chicago and worked on education and districting issues with the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and the Independent Voters of Illinois (IVI). Her papers reflect her research and efforts to improve student reading capabilities through the use of phonics and other teaching innovations. As a white activist in her North Lawndale community on Chicago’s West Side, Rich spent decades advocating for housing and other neighborhood stabilization efforts with the 15th Place Block Club (part of the Greater Lawndale Conservation Commission, GLCC). Rich was also interested in how urban renewal affected urban life and socioeconomic opportunity at the city and the community levels. Related to urban development was her lifelong passion for environmental issues and her efforts to transform vacant neighborhood lots into urban gardens.

Throughout her adult life Rich was employed as a temporary office worker, which allowed her flexibility to set her own schedule. She gained a teaching certificate in education, but preferred to work as a substitute teacher or tutor for the same reason. She retired in 1972.

Rich’s husband, Ted, served in Europe during World War II from 1943-1945 where his facility with languages earned him transfer from the Infantry to the Ordnance where he taught German. After the war he worked for the American Medical Association as an editor and writer and also for the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Faith Rich died on March 12, 1990. Ted died in 2009. Faith and Ted Rich had no children.

Scope and Content

The Faith Rich Papers date from 1821 to 1993, however, the bulk of the material dates from 1938 to 1989 when Rich was active with numerous civic groups and causes. The collection includes Rich’s correspondence; the meeting minutes and materials from various civic groups; and publications, reports and other documentation related to her research and activism. Rich was active with multiple groups simultaneously, however, the organizations with the most documentation in the collection includes the Chicago Westside Branch of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), Schools Committee, Independent Voters of Illinois (IVI), Literary Council of Chicago, 15th Place Block Club and the Loglan Institute. The topics covered in Rich’s papers include civil rights, desegregation, education, environmentalism, housing, linguistics, literacy, labor rights, racial justice, urban renewal, voting districts and family matters.

The papers and photographs that date from before 1938 mostly document Theodore Rich’s family and ancestors.

Although the collection is arranged into distinct series there is significant cross over between subjects and/or organizations. Researchers are strongly encouraged to consult the collection broadly.

Arrangement

The papers are organized into four series:

  • Series 1: Biographical, 1928-1993
  • Series 2: Community Activism and Volunteer Work, 1912-1993
  • Series 3: Subject Files, 1935-1990
  • Series 4: Theodore Rich Family, 1821-1970

Series 1: Biographical, 1928-1993

Faith Rich’s extensive correspondence provides a holistic view of her communications, relationships and activism. The correspondents include her family; a committed group of friends; her husband, Ted, while he was stationed in Europe during World War II or away on business and a wide range of authors, activists, and government officials. The letter topics range from the mundane business of ordering publications and renewing periodicals or memberships to an active engagement and description of her activism or research on such issues as environmentalism, housing, labor, political theory, race relations, schools and urban development. Researchers should be sure to also review all of her correspondence including from family and holiday newsletters for her insights on these civic action topics.

The correspondence in this series is a combination of letters to Rich as well as carbons of the letters she sent. A handful of mostly family letters addressed to Ted are also included. Beginning in her youth, Rich experienced tremors in her hand that affected her writing and as a result, she typed most of her letters. Rich’s correspondence that is specific to education outside of her committee work with the Chicago Westside Branch NAACP or other named groups has been separated out and added to Series 2: Community Activism and Volunteer Work, Subseries C: Education.

Rich maintained a lifelong friendship with fellow social activist, Tamaara “Tommy or Tommie” Danish Tabb, whom she met in the 1930s when Tabb directed the Educational Division of the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union, (ILGWU). In addition to their regular correspondence over the years, Rich retained the packets of news clippings that Tabb regularly sent her in the 1980s. Some of the original clippings were photocopied by the BMRC processing project and no longer have their associated envelopes and may not be in their original order. Taken together, the correspondence and news clipping packets between these two women provides a snapshot into the lives of these community organizers.

In the 1940s, Rich regularly exchanged letters on academic and political topics with collegiate associates. The correspondent “R” refers to Robert New, “S” refers to his wife Silva Tipple New Lake and “F” is Faith. Rich’s letter to “R” on March 27, 1943 touches on her difficulties with Bryn Mawr College to officially publish her thesis and earn her PhD.

Rich’s regular family correspondents include her sister, Rhoda Baldwin Mullen; her brothers Lyle and Don Baldwin; her mother; sister-in-law, Ethelinda “Nin” Rich Hanson and her niece, Andrea “Nikki” Baldwin.

The Indecks Information Retrieval System cards that Rich used to manage her contacts were retained in the order found. The file are alphabetical by topic, type of action or materials type.

Series 2: Community Activism and Volunteer Work, 1912-1993

Rich was a lifelong community activist, educator and volunteer with numerous organizations including the Chicago Westside Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), the Independent Voters of Illinois (IVI), the 15th Place Block Club, the Literacy Council of Chicago and local PTAs. She focused her organizing efforts on issues of civil rights, desegregation of schools and neighborhoods, equality in education, racism and the effect of urban renewal on local communities and especially, her own North Lawndale neighborhood in Chicago.

This series contains any materials related to Rich’s work with community groups and local issues. The materials include correspondence, flyers, meeting materials, memos, newsletters, notes, publications, studies, reports and research.

The Community Activism and Volunteer Work series is organized into five subseries:

  • Subseries A: Chicago Westside Branch NAACP, 1945-1990
  • Subseries B: Civil Rights, Community Services and Labor, 1912-1993
  • Subseries C: Education, 1915-1990
  • Subseries D: Urban Renewal Community Work, 1946-1993
  • Subseries E: Urban Renewal Publications, 1939-1990

Researchers are encouraged to review related files across series and subseries and to consult Rich's personal correspondence in Series 1. Rich worked on similar issues, such as education, with multiple organizations and organizations like the NAACP and CORE were simultaneously active in the same school desegregation and educational equality initiatives. Additionally, a considerable portion of her papers did not have a distinct original order. As such, it was not always clear if correspondence or materials related to education, in particular, were created or gathered independently or if these acts were on behalf of an organization.

Subseries A: Chicago Westside Branch NAACP, 1912-1990

Rich’s membership with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) began around 1945 and lasted until her death in 1990. She served the organization in a variety of roles, such as on the Education Committee that she chaired at various times over the years, most notably from 1956-1957 when her landmark study, De Facto Segregation in Chicago Public Schools (Box 8, Folder 14), was released. Other highlights include her contributions to the Textbook Committee who researched and proposed revisions in school textbooks in 1946-1947 to remove bias and better reflect contributions made by African Americans, Catholics, Jews and other groups as well as her work on the NAACP bookmobile, organizing Illinois State Conferences and the housing and labor committees.

The meeting materials include a range of agendas, bulletins, correspondence, flyers, handwritten notes, meeting minutes, research and reports.

The subseries is organized alphabetically by topic or type of action.

Subseries B: Civil Rights, Community Services and Labor, 1935-1993

Subseries B: Civil Rights, Community Services and Labor brings together Rich’s files of her work with several community groups that worked on civil rights and labor actions such as the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), the Independent Voters of Illinois (IVI) and the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union, (ILGWU). Early in her career, Rich realized that Chicago’s political wards played a role in where and how social issues, particularly related to de facto segregation were or could be addressed in Chicago. In 1948, Rich and her husband, Ted, compiled a Political Directory of Chicago and Illinois. A copy of this publication is included in Subseries B.

Most of Rich’s CORE files were deposited at the Wisconsin Historical Society Library and Archives, Madison, Wisconsin in 1971 by Professor August Meier. The CORE files found in this collection of papers primarily concern a portion of her work with the Schools Committee in the early 1960s. Specifically, there is some documentation of Operation IN (Integration Now), a CORE statement at a schools budget meeting and opposition to Superintendent Benjamin Willis, along with a few letters expressing opposition to her efforts.

Subseries B also contains files on her work with the people with disabilities, libraries, parks, peace groups and political organizations.

The subseries is organized alphabetically by agency or topic.

Subseries C: Education, 1915-1990

Rich was a lifelong advocate of equal access to quality education and schools. This subseries brings together all of the educational organizations outside of the NAACP and CORE that Rich worked with over the years. These meeting materials and reports document her service with George W. Collins High School’s Local School Council, as a board member of the Literacy Council of Chicago and as a volunteer for Educable Mentally Handicapped (EMH) Coalition and the Citizens Schools Committee. The Education subseries also includes her research on efforts to improve student reading capabilities through the use of phonics and other teaching innovations, along with publications that document Parent-Teacher Associations (PTA) procedures.

Researchers should also consult Subseries A for Rich’s NAACP Education Committee work and Subseries B for her CORE Schools Committee integration work and Independent Voters of Illinois (IVI) for school district studies.

The subseries is organized alphabetically by agency or topic.

Subseries D: Urban Renewal Community Work, 1946-1993

Faith Rich’s activism included her West Side Chicago neighborhood of North Lawndale where she resided for 37 years, first at 1500 S. Karlov Avenue from 1953-1959 and later at 1516 S. Albany Avenue from 1959 until her death in 1990. During these years, North Lawndale went from being a neighborhood with a high concentration of Russian Jews to a predominantly African American community whose members found few employment opportunities with neighborhood industries. As a consequence, North Lawndale’s new population struggled with poverty, overcrowding and a lack of new housing. These circumstances created tension with the white workers who commuted from other parts of the city or suburbs to work at neighborhood businesses and industries. The racial discrimination behind these circumstances was among the reasons Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. chose North Lawndale as a base for his northern civil rights campaign, also known as the Chicago Freedom Movement. North Lawndale changed little as a result of Dr. King’s stay and most businesses closed or relocated after the riots that followed his assassination in 1968. The community-based organizations he inspired, such as the Lawndale Peoples’ Planning & Action Conference and the Pyramidwest Development Corporation, failed in their revitalizing mission. Conference materials and a report from these groups, respectively, were among Rich’s files. Subseries E contains Chicago’s Department of Urban Renewal plans for the Douglas Park and Lawndale communities along with other reports and studies of the area.

As a white activist in her North Lawndale community on Chicago’s West Side, Rich spent decades advocating for equitable and desegregated neighborhood services that included schools, housing, economic development opportunities and city services such as libraries and parks. As with other initiatives by Rich, she worked both with local organizations, such as the 15th Place Block Club (part of the Greater Lawndale Conservation Commission, GLCC) and independently as a researcher and advocate. The bulk of this subseries documents block club activities such as baseball leagues, community gardens, forums for neighborhood complaints, reading programs, support for local school programs and vacant lot clean-up. Lists of land parcels, ward maps, correspondence and studies provide additional insight into Rich’s research interests.

Researchers should also consult the Rich’s research library of urban renewal publications in Subseries E and the NAACP files in Subseries A for meeting materials and other files on housing and labor, including the report from circa 1953 on job opportunities.

The subseries is organized alphabetically by agency or topic.

Subseries E: Urban Renewal Publications, 1939-1990

Faith Rich kept an extensive library of publications, studies, reports and articles related to urban development plans in Chicago along with a small number of studies on comparative cities. The bulk of these publications was created by a handful of City or civic organizations, although private studies or corporate entities often authored and participated in neighborhood plans or attempted to influence the direction of renewal projects. Some of these publications are accompanied by maps or photographs. A number of the planning organizations and City departments included in Rich’s library changed names and/or evolved into new divisions over the years.

The Chicago Plan Commission was established in 1909 to promote and implement the Plan of Chicago, also referred to as the Burnham Plan. In 1939, the Commission was reorganized as a part of City government. The Commission continues to be staffed by the City of Chicago’s Department of Zoning and Land Use Planning and reviews proposals of land acquisitions, sales and developments.

Chicago’s Department of Urban Renewal (DUR) was created through the combination of the Chicago Land Clearance Commission and the Community Conservation Board in 1962. This merger was the result of the State of Illinois Urban Renewal Consolidation Act of 1961, which required municipalities to create departments of urban renewal to manage projects and funding related to land clearance and redevelopment.

The topics covered in Rich’s library include demographics, environmental conditions, historic preservation, housing, land clearance, neighborhood redevelopment, relocation for businesses and residents, transportation planning and zoning. Some of these publications use the terms “blight” and “slum clearance.” Urban renewal plans for numerous Chicago neighborhoods are represented.

The publications are alphabetized by the publishing organization or by title in the case of individually-authored papers.

Series 3: Subject Files, 1935-1990

This series contains correspondence, research notes and publications related to Rich’s other areas of interest including environmentalism, gardening, Native American culture and the artificial language created by the Loglan Institute.

The Loglan Institute developed and promoted an artificial, logical human language called “Loglan,” first introduced by Dr. James Cooke Brown in 1955. Rich served as “Cerpeu of La Purmao Diigru” for the Loglan Institute, a title that roughly translates to Chairperson of the Word Creation Committee. She was also interested in the language as it related to linguistics and education in general, a lifelong interest of hers. This series includes issues of The Loglanist journal from 1976 to 1983, flash cards, correspondence, newsletters, worksheets and grammar exercises.

The subseries is organized alphabetically by topic.

Series 4: Theodore Rich Family, 1821-1970

Series 4 contains papers and photographs that pertain to the family of Theodore “Ted” Freeling Rich, Faith Rich’s husband. One of six children, Ted Rich was born on January 7, 1906, in Burlington, Vermont, to Anna Varney and Dr. Frank A. Rich. Ted’s father was a veterinarian who was commissioned by the United States government to research Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease in 1902. Ted attended the University of Vermont and went on to do his graduate studies at the University of Chicago. In 1943, at the age of 37, he was drafted into the Army and deployed to Europe where his ability to communicate in multiple languages led to his placement as a German language educator and translator. After the war, Ted did editorial work for the American Medical Association (AMA) and Encyclopedia Britannica. He died on November 18, 2009.

Ted Rich’s ancestral family materials are organized into two subseries:

  • Subseries A: Documents, 1821-1953
  • Subseries B: Photographs, circa 1855-1970

Subseries A: Documents, 1821-1953

This subseries contains genealogical notes and legal documents, such as indentures and mortgages, for the Rich and Varney families in the areas of Burlington, Vermont, and East Avon, New York, along with correspondence that dates from the 1820s through 1970. Ted’s ancestral lines include the Cole, Milliman, Smith, Varney and Rich families.

The bulk of the family letters include those written by or to Ted’s parents, Dr. Frank A. and Anna Rich; as well as his siblings, Ethelinda, Frank, Lucy, Ramon and Robert. A selection of the letters have detailed inventories with contextual and biographical notes about the correspondents that were made by Chicago Public Library staff and Ted Rich around the time the collection was donated in 1993. Folders with letters and documents for Ted’s parents that were found grouped together have been retained in this fashion. However, additional correspondence to and from Anna and Frank can be found in the Rich Family letters.

More information about the Rich-Varney family lines can be found in the book, Around the Mountains: Historical Essays about Charlotte, Ferrisburgh, and Monkton, by William Wallace Higbee. (F49.5.H54 1991)

Subseries A also contains a selection of Ted’s personal and academic writings, including his WPA research on Chicago packinghouses, poetry and a scholarly article. His Civil Service Translator ratings in French, German, Italian and Spanish are also in this subseries.

The subseries is organized alphabetically by surname.

Subseries B: Photographs, circa 1855-1970

This subseries consists of photographs, including tin types, ambrotypes and cyanotypes, of Ted Rich’s ancestral families.

The subseries is organized alphabetically by surname.
