Corbett, Alfred H.
The Alfred Corbett Papers contain three series, the first documenting his work with the Office of Economic Opportunity/Legal Services Program (OEO/LSP), and the second documenting his work for the Legal Services Corporation. The third series contain four photo albums with photos taken by Corbett with legal services scenes. Most of the documents and papers relate to his contribution as funds administrator and program managing. The first series, concerning his years with the OEO/LSP, includes reports and evaluations of several Community Action Agencies and planning and budgeting for nation-wide and regional programs. It also includes The National Anti-Poverty Plan: Report of OEO for years 1968-1972. The second series relates to Corbett's years in the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The LSC series contains reports and evaluations as well as drafts and letters concerning financing and project management. There are also records on alternative uses of Investment Income, one a plan to increase the involvement of the private bar, and another raising private money to finance comprehensive plans for persons of "Lower and Middle Income Brackets" and the "Near Poor". The series also includes several copies of Corbett's thesis "The Last Miles...," which contains long range goals above the minimum access level and approaches for the development of those long range goals. Finally, it includes what is likely to be Corbett's achievement, an ABA/LSC Pro-Bono project dated 1979. Both series include handwritten notes, memos, newspaper clippings, and letters. There is a folder about Corbett's retirement. The third series includes five unique photo albums capturing legal services scenes from the late 1960s until the mid 1970s. Background Information on the Last Miles and Information about the Corbett Papers - 9/93 -- is included in the Corbett vertical file.
