Scope and arrangement
The Canada Lee Foundation Records consist of organizational records including by-laws, minutes of the board of trustees, a draft of the organizational manual and brochures. Correspondence with Frances Lee and members of the board document the promotion of the objectives of the organization, especially the memorial album privately produced in Canada Lee's honor. There is also material regarding the presentation of awards and scholarships, and questionionnaires and correspondence used to encourage summer stock theaters and colleges to accept more African-American students.|||The promotion of the Foundation in Los Angeles is documented and includes Lee's address books, which were possibly used to identify potential donors. There are numerous index cards listing names and addresses of individuals. Some financial records are also included in the collection.
