Area Progress Council

Following the 1966 Race Riot in Dayton, concerned civic leaders sought to understand the growing source of conflict in the community.  The Area Progress Council formed a committee to study race relations.  UD President Very Reverend Raymond A. Roesch was asked to lead the committee.  The following are documents related to the committee found in the Glen Thompson Papers in the Archives and Special Collections at Wright State University. These documents help understand the situation in Dayton in the later half of the 1960s.
