Biographical Note

As a young child in WWII the Rev. Martin L. Deppe (1935-) fell in love with history through stamp collecting, following his uncles in the war on maps and vigorous table conversation. He followed his love into college studies, then taking a Fulbright Fellowship in Germany and being named a Woodrow Wilson Scholar. Reformation history led him into the Church as a pastor serving six congregations over 39 years in Chicago and suburbs.

Early on, Deppe saw the church to be an instrument of social justice, particularly in civil rights and in peace efforts. He was soon involved with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s (SCLC) Operation Breadbasket, brought to Chicago by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Deppe was a founding and then active Steering Committee participant for the Chicago-based economic justice project. Deppe became active in the Chicago chapter of Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC) (about the war in Vietnam), which he soon chaired, as well as serving on the National Steering Committee; Chicago’s Alliance to End Repression (AER), which he also chaired, and other “Movement” groups. He was active at all levels of the United Methodist Church authoring dozens of social justice resolutions from the Northern Illinois Conference area to the general church. Below is timeline of Deppe’s ministry:

  • 1961-1964 Mandell Methodist Church, 5000 W. Congress Parkway, Chicago
  • 1964-1970 Gresham Methodist Church, 8700 S. Emerald Avenue, Chicago
  • 1970-1975 First United Methodist Church, 516 Church Street, Evanston, IL
  • 1975-1984 Morgan Park United Methodist Church, 11030 S. Longwood Drive, Chicago
  • 1984-1990 Hinsdale United Methodist Church, Hinsdale, IL
  • 1991-1999 Irving Park Methodist Church, 3801 N. Keeler Avenue, Chicago

In retirement Deppe wrote numerous letters to the editor on current justice issues, his “wider pulpit” as his wife put it, with well over a hundred published, especially in the post 9-11 years. In his twilight years he returned to his love of history upon discovering a gap in the civil rights literature. When he found the amazing story of Operation Breadbasket untold, he turned historian and wrote a seminal account, from the inside, both academic and personal, both history and memoir. He feels his life has come full circle, from the history classrooms in high school and college during the 1940s and 1950s to our own time, telling the Breadbasket narrative in Chicago area schools, colleges, libraries and churches.

Series 2: Operation Breadbasket, 1958-2019, bulk 1966-1971

Scope and Content

On February 11, 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. presented the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) program, Operation Breadbasket, to Chicago pastors at Jubilee C.M.O. Church at 59th Street and Michigan Avenue. As part of Dr. King’s northern campaign, the program sought to secure meaningful employment and business opportunities for African Americans through a selective patronage program led by clergy. Under the direction of Chicago Theological Seminary student, Jesse Jackson, teams of ministers surveyed local businesses to identify employment discrimination, negotiated for comparable job opportunities with business leaders and brought the power of the pulpit to support a selective buying campaign that used boycotts when needed to benefit their neighborhood and race. By 1971, Breadbasket efforts netted around 4,500 jobs and sharply increased the commerce involving black-owned businesses, primarily on the South Side of Chicago. Among the companies targeted were A&P, Jewel, Pepsi-Cola and Walgreen’s.

Beyond the economic program, Operation Breadbasket expanded its mission to include programs and sub-committees, called Spokes and Hubs, that included Black Expo, Hunger USA, the Poor People’s Campaign, a Consumer Club, a Music Division and other ministries like the Saturday workshops that drew hundreds to hear Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. preach.

Following Dr. King’s assassination in 1968, tension emerged between Rev. Jackson and SCLC’s new leader, Ralph Abernathy. In 1971, Rev. Jackson’s refusal to move the headquarters of Operation Breadbasket to Atlanta led to his resignation from SCLC and to the founding of Operation PUSH (People United to Save Humanity). Chicago Breadbasket continued for another year before ending.

Beginning around 2006, Rev. Deppe began consulting his Operation Breadbasket files to compose his book, Operation Breadbasket: The Untold Story of Civil Rights in Chicago, 1966-1971. His research notes created over the course of 2006-2016 were added to the files at this time along with some of the news articles

A small number of Photographs related to Operation Breadbasket can be found in Series 6.

The Operation Breadbasket Series spans Rev. Deppe’s involvement with Operation Breadbasket and the Civil Rights Movement in 1963 to the publication of his book, Operation Breadbasket: The Untold Story of Civil Rights in Chicago, 1966-1971, in 2017. Series 2 includes Rev. Deppe’s original organizing meeting and planning materials, flyers, newsletters, news clippings, reports and book drafts.

Arrangement

The Operation Breadbasket Series is organized into seven subseries that reflect Rev. Deppe’s overall organization of his files:

  • Subseries A: Pre-Breadbasket, 1958-2016
  • Subseries B: Administrative and General, 1965-2016
  • Subseries C: Campaigns and Covenants, 1966-1981

Series 3: Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC), 1965-1998

Scope and Content

Clergy and Laity Concern (CALC) was organized in 1965 by a number of prominent religious figures as an emergency committee including Rev. William Sloane Coffin, Rabbi Abraham Heschel, Father Daniel Berrigan, Dr. John Bennett and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The organization was initially known as Clergy and Laity Concerned about Vietnam (CALCAV). The initial goal was to unite an interfaith religious community who opposed the Vietnam War and U.S. involvement in Indochina. From 1965-1975, CALCAV organized demonstrations and lobbying efforts against the war and sought to influence religious institutions to divest their funds from war-making businesses. The Honeywell Campaign in 1972 focused on that corporation’s manufacture of anti-personnel weapons. From 1973 to 1977, CALCAV worked with the American Friends Service Committee in a joint Stop the B-1 Bomber/National Peace Conversion Campaign.

In 1972, the name of the organization was shortened to Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC) to reflect such broader concerns of amnesty, disarmament, corporate responsibility and human rights struggles in Latin America and Africa. The founding principles that moral/ethical/religious values must be brought to bear on problems of political, economic, and social injustice remained the same.

Although CALC was based in New York, the organization had chapters across the country, including Chicago, and its actions occurred locally, nationally and internationally. The interconnected civic actions are evident throughout Rev. Deppe’s papers, but include several highlights. In 1971, Rev. Deppe, along with Rev. Willie Barrow, represented the Chicago Chapter at the Citizens Conference on Ending the War in Indochina held in Paris that met with the North Vietnamese delegation. The following year, Rev. Deppe, was one of 95 members of Clergy and Laity Concerned arrested during a demonstration in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, DC and jailed a few cells down from Rev. William Sloane Coffin. In 1981, Rev. Deppe testified at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee against the State Department nomination of Ernest W. Lefever whose policies did not promote human rights.

Arrangement

Series 3 documents Rev. Deppe's involvement with CALC’s Chicago Chapter and as well as his actions and leadership roles within CALC’s National Organization and Regional Field Staff.

Based primarily on regional distinctions, Series 3 is organized into five subseries:

  • Subseries A: Chicago Chapter, 1965-1996
  • Subseries B: Chicago Chapter, Projects and Actions, 1966-1998
  • Subseries C: National Organization and Regional Field Staff, 1966-1992
  • Subseries D: National Organization and Regional Field Staff, Projects and Actions, 1966-1997
  • Subseries E: Audiovisual, circa 1970-1998

Series 3: Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC), 1965-1998

Subseries A: Chicago Chapter, 1965-1992

Scope and Content

Rev. Deppe joined the Chicago chapter of CALC shortly after its founding in 1965. Over the next 31 years, Rev. Deppe would serve as chair of the Chicago chapter and on its Board of Directors. Subseries A contains the administrative planning materials created by the Chicago Chapter. These materials include, Satyagraha, the primary newsletter for the Chicago Chapter and other publications. The early issues of Satyagraha were created by the Nonviolent Training and Action Center (NVTAC) who would merge into the Chicago Chapter of CALC. A few other NVTAC news sheets were retained as found with the newsletters. The Steering Committee meeting materials often contain action flyers and information from partner organizations. In 1989, the Chicago Chapter of CALC restructured its Board to reflect a multicultural and multiracial society and the focus of its initiatives to combat racism.

Arrangement

The files are arranged alphabetically by administrative function or type of planning material.

Series 3: Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC), 1965-1998

Subseries B: Chicago Chapter, Projects and Actions, 1966-1998

Scope and Content

Subseries B contains information about the projects and actions that the Chicago Chapter undertook, locally, nationally and internationally. As with the national organization, the Chicago Chapter was active with Vietnam War opposition, anti-apartheid efforts, human rights issues and a variety of disarmament initiatives ranging from opposition to Honeywell weapons and General Electric’s B-1 Bomber to advocating for a nuclear weapons freeze. Through the efforts of Chicago Chapter, Chicago passed an ordinance to become a Nuclear Weapon-Free Zone on March 12, 1986 during the tenure of Mayor Harold Washington.

Among the planning materials in this series, there are numerous documents that highlight Rev. Deppe’s participation. These include the speech Rev. Deppe gave at the 1971 Citizens Conference on Ending the War in Indochina held in Paris along with statements by other attendees and his handwritten notes and his testimony to Senate Foreign Relations Committee against Ernest Lefever in 1981.

In 1992, the Chicago Chapter of CALC shifted its focus from a multi-issue organization and committed itself exclusively to an anti-racism agenda. This work began under the Racial and Economic Justice task force. Early racial awareness workshops were called the Racial Rehab Institute (RRI) and the Racial Reduction Institute (RRI). The Anti-Racism Institute grew out of these initiatives.

Arrangement

The projects and actions are organized alphabetically by topic or action and, when applicable, use the CALC task force sub-committee terms of Central America and Sanctuary, Disarmament, Militarism and Conscience Program, South Africa and Vietnam War. Given the close relationship with national projects and actions, it is recommended that researchers also consult Subseries D.

Series 3: Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC), 1965-1998

Subseries C: National Organization and Regional Field Staff, 1966-1992

Scope and Content

Founded in New York City, the governing structure of CALC was originally guided by the national staff with a National Steering Committee. As an action-oriented movement of individuals and groups, however, CALC soon sought to decentralize and empower its local chapters. In 1971, Trudi Schutz Young was hired in to work on field development that would create more cohesion between local, regional, and national staff through training, frequent communication, and periodic conferences. The Regional Field Staff program began in January of 1973. At this time, the organization shifted to a structure where a National Assembly composed of chapter, action group and at-large members met annually to serve as the highest decision-making body in CALC. A National Interim Steering Committee and regional field staff coordinated the work of the local chapters between these annual gatherings. The national office in New York City, however, continued administrative and program support for CALC’s network of local groups, raised funds and represented the organization in public forums and national coalitions.

Rev. Deppe worked to develop the Regional Field Staff program and served on its committee from 1972-1977. As part of this role, Rev. Deppe was active with the National Organizing Conferences and the National Steering Committee. Subseries C includes the meeting and planning materials as well as publications and posters produced by or used by these CALC groups.

Given the mission of these committees to unify and connect CALC groups and actions, these materials are related to those produced by the Chicago Chapter. It is recommended that researchers also consult CALC Subseries A.

Series 4: Alliance to End Repression, 1949-1995

Scope and Content

The Alliance to End Repression (AER) was created in 1970 by leaders from civil liberties, religious, peace and community organizations to consider the problem of repression of constitutional rights. Their actions include police, judicial and bail reforms along with an end to secret surveillance created by Chicago Police Department, Subversive Activities Unit, Security Section, also known as the Red Squad. Trained by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Red Squad engaged in unlawful information gathering and disruption of hundreds of Chicago organizations and activists. The Alliance to End Repression was one of many plaintiffs who brought a lawsuit against this unit in 1974. A verdict and judgment in favor of the plaintiffs was reached in 1985.

This Series includes meeting and planning materials spanning 1969-1991, the Red Squad campaign and civil suit documents from 1976-1987 and the copies of the Red Squad reports on Rev. Deppe and other social justice advocates who participated in Operation Breadbasket and Clergy and Laity Concerned (CALC).

Series 6: Photographs, circa 1965-2017

Scope and Content

The photographs in Series 6 reflect Rev. Deppe’s participation in social justice actions and organizations. A small number of photographs relate to Operation Breadbasket actions or participants. The bulk of the images relate to CALC events, meetings, programs and protests spanning the late 1970s to the early 1990s. Among the CALC events represented are annual CALC dinners that featured senators and other influential speakers, disarmament protests at the Argonne National Laboratory and at the Arms Bazaar trade show at the O’Hare Expo Center, the Chicago Nuclear-Free Zone initiatives and humanitarian campaigns such as Soweto Day anti-apartheid demonstrations. In 1987, Rev. Deppe was recognized for his commitment to social justice at CALC’s annual Swords into Ploughshares breakfast. Harold Washington and David Orr were also recognized with CALC Peacemaker Awards at the same event.

Additionally, the photographs also represent Rev. Deppe’s activities with other causes and organizations. Several photographs document his journey to Nicaragua to serve as an election monitor in 1990 and his engagement with Washington, DC lobbying efforts of Chicago Religious Leadership Network on Latin America (CRLN). Other photographs document the Gulf War protests in Chicago over the course of 1990 to 1991.

Rev. Deppe’s Peace Album was scanned by the archivist in 2019 before the album was returned to Rev. Deppe. The photographs from the Peace Album are itemized here and contain a mixture of biographical images and social justice work beginning in the mid-1960s. In some cases, the photographs correspond directly to photographs that were donated in physical form and provide additional views of an event. The files use the prefix “album” and can be viewed electronically in the Special Collections Reading Room.

Related photographs on Chicago’s Nuclear Weapon-Free Zone can be found in the Harold Washington Archives & Collections, Press Office Photographs and the Eugene Sawyer Mayoral Records. Additional photographs related to Operation Breadbasket can be found in the Rev. Clay Evans Archive.

Arrangement

The photographs are arranged alphabetically by named person, organization or action campaign. Physical and electronic files are listed together and frequently have subject overlap.
