dc.descriptionThe date range for this collection is 1964-1974.en
dc.description.abstractThe collection consists of forty-nine interviews conducted by Johnson as part of his research for the book Justice And Reform: The Formative Years of the American Legal Services Program, first published in 1974 by the Russell Sage Foundation. Justice and Reform is the only comprehensive survey of the history of the Legal Services Program (LSP) within the Office Of Economic Opportunity (OEO). The program was created as part of President Johnson's War On Poverty and the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. Earl Johnson played a major role in Legal Services' formative years, first as Deputy Director and then as Program Director. The interviews are with key individuals in the field of legal services. Most of the interviews were completed between 1968 and 1969. Justice and Reform documents the history of The Legal Services Program within The Office Of Economic Opportunity in four parts: Part I. The Roots of the legal aid movement in the United States; Part II. The Establishment Of The Program; Part III. The Management of the Program; and Part IV. An Assessment. Some of the interviews are not dated, although many dates may be ascertained via the book's end notes. Those interviews that are undated are annotated as undated. Where a date could be ascertained via the end notes to the book, those dates are written after the undated annotations. Where an interviewee's professional status is noted or could be determined, that status is indicated. Where an interview topic is noted or could be determined, the topic is indicated.en
