Formal title:
Foster Parents Plan International, Volume I
393.5 linear feet
Date range:
The records of Foster Parents Plan International span the years 1937 to 1982 and document the founding, early development, and international growth of the organization. Later records of PLAN, the bulk of which span the years 1980 to 1994, were removed from the organization's then international headquarters in Warwick, Rhode Island and deposited in the Special Collections Department in 1994. Those records were organized separately and are described in a separate finding aid. There is some overlap between the two groups of records. Researchers should consult the finding aids to both collections to insure that they have all of the material relating to a particular event or issue. These records consist of documents generated by or sent to PLAN headquarters by field officers, headquarters staff in the field, national organizations, government officials, consultants hired by PLAN and firms with which PLAN conducted business. Included are correspondence, memos, completed forms, operations manuals, agendas and minutes of meetings, reports, case histories, legal documents, and photographic prints and negatives.
