Collection Overview

Biography / History
Frank L. Stanley Sr. was editor, general manager, and publisher of the African American newspaper Louisville Defender for thirty-eight years. He was also involved with the National Newspaper Publishers Association, Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, the Kentucky Human Rights Commission, and twice inspected troop conditions overseas for the U.S. government. This group consists of Stanley's personal papers from the period while he was editor of the Louisville Defender, as well as office records of the Louisville Defender newspaper. The papers also include Stanley's correspondence, speeches, scrapbooks, photographs, and memorabilia.
Scope and Content
The personal papers of Frank L. Stanley, Sr. (1906-1974), and the records of the Louisville Defender (1933-), the newspaper for which he served as general manager, editor, and president for thirty-eight years, are intertwined. The collection contains 41.75 linear feet of material, with portions preserved on seven reels of microfilm. The papers were donated to the University of Louisville in 1983 by Stanley's widow, Vivian Clark Stanley, and his son, Kenneth Stanley. The Defender is no longer owned by the Stanley family.
The Louisville Defender was founded in 1933 by Alvin Bowman, with the encouragement and financial backing of John Sengstacke and the Chicago Defender. Public service projects quickly made the paper an important part of Louisville's black community. From 1936 to 1974 Frank L. Stanley, Sr., through the paper and through his many activities, came to personify the Defender in the local and national communities. College-trained as an English teacher, he was a founder and five-time president of the National Newspaper Publishers' Association; twice national president of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity; vice-chairman of the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights; commissioned in 1946 and 1948 by the United States Secretaries of War and Defense to inspect troop conditions in occupied Europe; a leader in advocating open access to public accommodations in the 1960s; and in 1962 was invited by the United States Department of State to conduct journalism seminars in Africa.
To preserve the Stanley/Defender material, a National Historical Publications and Records Commission grant was awarded in 1984 to the University of Louisville. Additional support was received from the University of Louisville Library and the Bingham Foundation. The papers have been arranged, described, and selectively microfilmed.
The material is arranged in seven series: photographs; minute books and organizational records; scrapbooks; correspondence; speeches; memorabilia; and nine 1933 issues of the Defender. The six reels of microfilm include approximately 3,700 photographs from the Defender archives, scrapbooks, legal records and minute books, and the 1933 newspaper issues. Each reel begins with introductory material, series notes, and container listings for the portion microfilmed. The microfilm and a guide to the entire collection are available from the University of Louisville Archives, Ekstrom Library, University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky, 40292. Prints of photographs found on the microfilm are available from the Photographic Archives, Ekstrom Library, University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky, 40292. Cite the microfilm reel and frame numbers in requesting prints of photographs.
The Louisville Defender newspaper itself is available on microfilm from a commercial vendor beginning with the year 1952. For years prior to 1952, only scattered issues have been located.

Contents of the Collection

1: PHOTOGRAPHS

Arranged by subseries. Photographs constitute the largest series in the Louisville Defender records. Thirty-seven hundred individual photographs have been selected for microfilming from a total of approximately 25,000 single shots. The National Historical Publications and Records Commission photographic guidelines were used as criteria for selection. The guidelines stress the clarity and quality of the image, positive identification, and relevance of the subject matter. The basic photographic arrangement employed by the newspaper was retained. There are three subseries: photographs of individual people, those related to various subject matters, and images most accessible through a chronological arrangement. The print files in subseries one and two are arranged in alphabetical order, with portraits of individuals filed by the last name. Individual files are provided for prominent people: political figures, local and national black leaders, and celebrities. Photographs of Frank L. Stanley, Sr., and his family are found in all three subseries. The general subject section, subseries two, includes photographs related to state and national politics, black society in the city and state, civil rights, and public service programs sponsored by the Defender. One file of special interest, "Memories," includes photographs of early editions of the newspaper. The bulk of the photographs are the work of local photographers, which are especially prominent in subseries two. In the third subseries (chronological) the arrangement reflects issues of the newspaper in which the photographs appeared. Some images not selected for filming have been retained by the University of Louisville's Photographic Archives. Prints of photographs on the microfilm may be obtained from the Photographic Archives, University of Louisville, Ekstrom Library, Louisville, Kentucky, 40292. Cite the microfilm reel and frame number in requesting copies of photographs.

2: LEGAL RECORDS AND ORGANIZATIONAL MINUTES

Arranged by record type. The Louisville Defender, first published in 1933, reorganized and incorporated in 1936. The principles were William Craighead, Frank H. Gray, and Theodore Samuels, with an original investor, John H. Sengstacke of the Chicago Defender, majority stockholder and first board chairman. Frank L. Stanley, Sr., hired as general manager in 1936, became a board member in 1938 and president in 1949. In some cases, the newspaper and its attorneys separated legal documents from the organizational minutes. This order has been retained. As a result, the pagination of the minutes is not always sequential. Volume one of the minutes contains five record types: certificates and articles of incorporation, and amended articles of incorporation; by-laws; stock registers and transfer records; the shareholders ledger; and stock certificates. The second volume includes the minutes of annual stockholders' meetings, as well as periodic board of directors' meetings, 1936-1984, arranged chronologically. It also contains a certificate of authentication, an initial subscription agreement, and a waiver of notice. The board minutes include the general manager's annual report and financial reports.

3: SCRAPBOOKS

Arranged in chronological order. These scrapbooks illustrate Frank L. Stanley, Sr.'s, professional and social activities. Four books document three interests: (1) National Newspaper Publishers' Association; (2) Stanley's 1948 European tour of the United States military zones, Germany and Austria; and (3) Alpha Phi Alpha social fraternity. In 1945, Stanley helped found and became first president of the Negro Newspaper Publishers' Association (later renamed National Newspaper Publishers' Association). The group was formed as a non-profit news gathering service for member papers. Documented in news clippings and photographs are the first two years of that organization, 1945-1946. Memorabilia and clippings found unattached are filmed at the end. Stanley's 1948 European inspection tour of American troops, taken at the request of the United States Department of Defense, is contained in two scrapbooks. The reports from this mission and from a previous trip in 1946 paved the way for desegration of the United States Army. The first book, put together by the Public Information Division, Headquarters, European Command, is a memento of the trip. It contains snapshots, each with a printed comment on the facing page. The second book, probably kept by Stanley himself, includes photographs, correspondence, memorabilia, and newsclippings. Scrapbook three, Alpha Phi Alpha social fraternity, highlights fraternity activities with photographs, newsclippings, and memorabilia, 1954-1959. The book covers Stanley's two-year presidency of the national fraternity, 1955-1957, and Alpha Phi Alpha's fifty-year celebration, 1956. The photographs, other than those of Stanley, are only identified by location. Included are a program and photograph of the Doctor of Humanities degree conferred on Stanley by Allen University, Columbia, South Carolina, in 1955. Loose items--correspondence, telegrams, and newsclippings--are filmed at the end.

4: THE LOUISVILLE DEFENDER, THE LOUISVILLE NEWS, MISCELLANEOUS ISSUES

Arranged chronologically. Beginning in 1933, the Louisville Defender was issued every Thursday by the founder and publisher, Albin H. Bowman, with offices at 623 West Walnut Street, Louisville, Kentucky. Initially, the paper was printed by the Robert Abbott Company of Chicago. Reports in the early issues were local and regional in scope. Weekly columns were devoted to church functions, youth activities, and homemaking hints. Beginning in 1952, the Louisville Defender was microfilmed by a commercial vendor. For the years prior to 1952, only scattered issues have been located. The nine 1933 issues included here are among those scattered issues. They were in the possession of the Louisville Defender. The Defender also had one copy of a sister newspaper, the Louisville News, which is also included in this series.

5: CORRESPONDENCE

Arranged in alphabetical order by subject. For thirty-five years, Frank Leslie Stanley, Sr., was the Louisville Defender. His every public action mirrored that involvement. The correspondence files of Frank L. Stanley, Sr., and the records of the Louisville Defender demonstrate this relationship. They have been arranged in one alphabetical series, the system used by the Defender office. Each letter of the alphabet begins with a general folder and is followed by individual subject files. The largest portion of the correspondence, both incoming and outgoing, covers the period 1965 to 1970. This includes material for the weekly Defender columns on food, health news, and youth; files on personnel, payroll, and weekly circulation reports; and a series of material related to the annual exposition sponsored by the newspaper. Stanley's professional interests are mirrored in the National Newspaper Publishers' Association correspondence. He served five terms as president of that organization. There is also some information on his involvement in Alpha Phi Alpha, a black fraternity. Of great interest is Stanley's report to Kentucky Governor Bert T. Combs on Human Rights Commissions in six other states. The correspondence series also includes background material Stanley gathered for the preparation of editorials. Prominent correspondents include Hubert H. Humphrey, Whitney Young, Jr., Roy Wilkins, John Sengstacke of the Chicago Defender, C.C. DeJoie of the Louisiana Weekly, and former Kentucky Governor Bert T. Combs.

6: SPEECHES AND PUBLIC APPEARANCES; 1946-1974;

Arranged in chronological order. Frank L. Stanley, Sr., gave many speeches. He was an effective public speaker, a former college varsity debater, a man of influence, and probably a natural salesman and showman. The groups he addressed were varied. They included commencements, fraternal organizations, practicing journalists, journalism classes, church groups, social workers, athletic groups, and banquets. He tailored his topic to the occasion. As president of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity from 1955 to 1957, he traveled throughout the United States. He spoke to every local Alpha Phi Alpha chapter. The speeches, and miscellaneous notes from other public appearances, are arranged in chronological order. Title, occasion, and date are noted, when available. Undated material has been divided into topics, which include civil rights and journalism. reel 6, frames 0603-0859
