Collection Name Delmo Housing Corporation Records, 1945-1989
Collection Overview The Delmo Housing Corporation was formed in 1945 when ten Farm Security Administration communities were being sold. In order to prevent these homes from being sold to commercial interests with a resulting loss of migrant housing, a group of concerned people came together as the Delmo Housing Corporation, a charitable and educational corporation. Among the founding members were Bishop William Scarlett, Henry V. Putzel, Edwin P. Coleman, Jr., Oliver M. Langenberg, and Rev. Charles C. Wilson. They raised some of the down payment money and collected small down payments from the occupants of the homes, and were able to purchase nine of the communities (in 1954 an additional village was added). These homes were then purchased by the tenants at modest prices, allowing them to become homeowners, often for the first time.
Series Description These files, from the office of Harold C. Hanke, cover the development and maintenance of the Family Health Services, which provided health care for the residents of the Delmo communities. These records cover 1970-1976.
