Administrative History

Often referred to as an agitator, trouble maker, and communist, Saul Alinsky began his community organizing work in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood in the late 1930s. He believed that social justice could be achieved by ordinary people through democratic means and argued that controversy was necessary in affecting social change. Alinsky's legacy can be traced to modern organizing efforts by broad-based community organizations across the United States including the organization he founded, the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF). Additionally, Alinsky's vision and organizing tactics, as well as his trainees, can be found in other democratic movements including the Civil Rights Movement and the Farmworkers Movement.

Born in 1909 to Russian immigrants, Alinsky grew up in a Jewish ghetto in Chicago. Although he obtained a graduate degree in criminology from the University of Chicago, academia was not his preferred work environment. Alinsky worked briefly as a criminologist at a state prison in Joliet, Illinois. Before he emerged as a community organizer, Alinsky spent time during the 1930s working with the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO). Specifically, he helped organize the CIO Newspaper Guild and supported dissident members of the United Mine Workers. Strongly influenced by labor leader John L. Lewis (whose biography he wrote in 1949), he shifted his energy to community organizing and sought to empower politically and socially marginalized groups in society by teaching them how to use self-interest in order to bring disparate groups together toward a common goal. In Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood, home to the city's meat packing industry and the setting for Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, Alinsky worked closely with community leader Joe Meegan and Chicago Bishop Bernard Sheil to form his first broad-based community organization called the Back of the Yards Council in 1939. Drawing support from the Catholic Church, the Congress of Industrial Organizations, business leaders, and community members, and using a variety of militant tactics, Alinsky's group won major concessions from the city.

In his work with the Back of the Yards Council and with subsequent organizations, Alinsky relied upon and further developed the tactics and strategies he learned from the CIO. Like organized labor of that time, Alinsky's philosophy of community organizing used controlled conflict as its most important tool in extracting power from elites and redistributing that power among community members. Much like the CIO approach, Alinsky and his fellow organizers needed to be invited to a community, and that community needed to raise money on its own to support the organizing effort. Alinsky borrowed other strategies from the CIO including his emphasis on organizing around multiple salient issues and his tactic of polarizing and personalizing the enemy in campaigns. Structurally, Alinsky's organizations also resembled CIO unions. A typical Alinsky organization was governed by an annual convention, with monthly meetings of board members and representatives of member organizations.

In August of 1940, with financial assistance from Marshall Field III, Alinsky founded the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), which he intended to serve as an umbrella organization for the community groups he was developing across the United States. Unlike the modern IAF, Alinsky's organization included just a handful of professional organizers whose only training consisted of following Alinsky from city to city. In 1945, while spending time in jail for supporting union efforts in Chicago, the IAF leader documented his organizing vision and his experience with the Back of the Yards Council in Reveille for Radicals, in which he argued that the poor must salvage democracy through the creation of broad-based citizen's organizations. While these organizations would not be formed to fight for a specific issue or cause, the organizations would engage in issue-specific campaigns, with the broader goal of empowering local leaders.

Following his work with the Back of the Yards neighborhood, Alinsky and his small staff of two or three organizers continued to form organizations across through the United States. Among these organizations were the Citizens Foundation of Lackawanna in Lackawanna, New York; the Organization for the Southwest Community in Chicago; The Woodlawn Organization (TWO) in Chicago; BUILD in Buffalo, New York; and "Freedom, Integration, God, Honor, Today" ( FIGHT) in Rochester, New York.

Alinsky died suddenly at the age of sixty-three in June of 1972. After working with Alinsky for sixteen years, Edward Chambers took the helm of the IAF. A few years prior to Alinsky's death, Alinsky, Chambers, and fellow organizer Dick Harmon had created a training institute to teach future organizers the skills Alinsky had been developing in communities around the country and to institutionalize the organizing profession. While Alinsky traveled from one college campus to another speaking to young activists in the late 1960s, Harmon and Chambers focused on developing the institute, designed to train both poor and working class organizers from across the country with the goal that they would return to their communities armed with the skills necessary to revitalize democracy.

With the shift in leadership from Alinsky to Chambers came an institutionalization of many of the things Alinsky had done more casually. While Alinsky had trained organizers on the ground during campaigns, Chambers and other IAF leaders developed the training institute to teach potential organizers in larger numbers about the skills Alinsky had taught on the street. While Alinsky had required an invitation to a community from local leaders, Chambers developed a system in which the local organization interested in organizing its community and the IAF would sign a letter of agreement, stating the terms of the relationship. Beginning with the Back of the Yards Council, the IAF always desired to form strong organizations that could eventually function effectively without the IAF's assistance. Alinsky often admitted that his passion was in the birth of an organization and the controversy surrounding it. Chambers' IAF differs from Alinsky's in that it maintains a close relationship with its local affiliates over time. Finally, the process by which the IAF joins forces with local community groups has become more deliberate than it was under Alinsky. After determining that a significant amount of racial, ethnic, and religious diversity exists in a community and that community members are not focused on just one issue, the IAF begins to guide local leaders through the process of building an organization. Sponsoring committees form in the community to assess the level of interest and financial support available, and key leaders begin to attend IAF training sessions.

Under the direction of Chambers, the modern IAF, a nonpartisan and not-for-profit organization, has refined Alinsky's vision and has created a complex network of broad-based organizations across the United States. These organizations, located in New York, Maryland, Texas, California, and Illinois, among other places, bring institutions that are central to public life, such as churches, synagogues, unions, and neighborhood associations, together in local communities. IAF organizers seek to revive democracy in these communities, so that the act of voting is not the only aspect of public life for community members. Institutional members, including religious institutions, as well as other community groups and associations, contribute annual dues to the local IAF affiliate to finance the operation. The organizations' specific goals reflect the community's agenda and priorities and are developed through a series of individual and group meetings IAF organizers have with community leaders. Although each affiliate is led by a professional organizer employed by the IAF, developing local leaders is a central element in the IAF philosophy. Alinsky's creation of the broad-based citizens' organization that utilized leaders in pre-existing institutions demonstrated the importance of fostering grassroots leadership to create an organization that can survive long-term.

While each IAF organization develops its own agenda dependent upon community members' priorities, the process by which that agenda is brought to life is consistent across IAF organizations. Each organization holds actions, in which local political leaders and other targets are held publicly accountable for their actions. Following each action, professional organizers and local leaders gather together to evaluate their work. This required evaluation process allows the organization to reflect on the extent to which they have reached their goals, to assess their targets' reactions, and to plan subsequent action.

One example of a successful modern IAF organization is the Community Organized in Public Service (COPS), founded in 1973 in San Antonio, Texas. In 1990, there were twenty-six member churches in COPS, representing 50,000 families. Led by IAF regional supervisor, Ernesto Cortes Jr., COPS has been victorious on issues ranging from education to city infrastructure. Departing from Alinsky's philosophy of leaving an organization to survive on its own, the modern IAF has maintained close relationships with its affiliates, evidenced by COPS's fifteenth anniversary in 1988. Another major victory for the modern IAF began in East Brooklyn, New York with the Nehemiah Homes movement. In this devastated part of the city, IAF affiliate East Brooklyn Congregations built 2,100 single-family houses that low-income families could afford. This program was replicated in other parts of New York, Baltimore, and California and was the model program for the National Housing Opportunity Act of 1988.

Since Alinsky founded the IAF in 1940, the organization has created over 60 independent organizations across the United States and has assisted in creating similar organizations in the United Kingdom, Germany and South Africa. Although the daily activities of IAF affiliates is coordinated by local leaders and regional organizers, ten day national training sessions and regular network meetings insure philosophical continuity across the various IAF organizations. Unlike the days of Alinsky's IAF, the modern IAF now maintains close, continued relationships with the organizations it helps create. While the pedagogical and philosophical foundation of the modern IAF is very much rooted in Alinsky's vision of broad-based organizing, the organization's relationship with its affiliates, professional organizers, and local leaders has become more institutionalized, allowing it to grow into a sophisticated network of organizations.

Scope and Contents

This collection reflects the activities of the Industrial Areas Foundation. The IAF has been headquartered in both New York and Chicago, but the materials were produced by affiliates across the country. The records date from 1952 to 2004 and include correspondence, campaign materials, organizers' field reports, newspaper clippings, organizational publications, annual reports, and training materials. The materials prior to 1968 reflect the IAF under Saul Alinsky, while the materials produced since 1973 reflect the modern IAF under Ed Chambers. The materials generated between 1968 and 1973 reflect the transitional period when the training institute originated and IAF activities became more institutionalized.

The IAF collection is divided into eleven series. The first two series consist of materials from Saul Alinsky's IAF, prior to 1973. The remaining nine series include: Early IAF Organizations, IAF Coverage, Training Institute, Modern IAF Affiliates, International Affiliates, General Operations, Associated Organizations, IAF 50th Anniversary, and Photos.
