Scope and arrangement
The Robert LaPrince/National Council on Culture and Art (NCCA) Records are divided into two series, Personal and Professional. The bulk of the collection consists of the records of the NCCA and includes board agendas, minutes, reports and correspondence; planning files for the Monarch Awards and Opening Night programs, correspondence, contracts, financial records, fliers, grant proposals, artist information files, and news clippings.
The Personal files contain biographical information about LaPrince, his family, and manuscripts and typescripts of his columns in the New York Caribbean News and Pride Magazine, and articles published in the New York Amsterdam News. There are also files for 100 Black Men and YMCA Harlem, where LaPrince served on the board for each organization, as well as information about the National Council of Negro Women.
