- Henry A Triplett served as the attorney for the Louisville city schools during the desegregation lawsuit and subsequent merger of the city schools with the Jefferson County public school system. The merger of the two systems was ultimately considered one of the most nationally successful integrations of segregated districts. The files include correspondence, memoranda, reference materials, demographic data, briefs, pleadings, and other materials generated in defense of the Louisville school board in the desegregation suit brought against the board in the early 1970s.
