Marie Runyon Papers, 1955-2008

Series V: Personal Material and Correspondence, 1960-2008

Series V includes Runyon's personal correspondence as well as files she maintained on subjects not related to her work or tenant activism. In many of the letters, Runyon described her work and activism in the community in addition to more personal topics. Correspondence with Runyon's daughter Louise is filed under her nickname, Weezie. Besides correspondence with family and friends, the miscellaneous correspondence folders also contain Runyon's letters to local and national politicians in which she expressed her opinions about policies and current events. Series V further documents Runyon's attention to current events through newspaper and magazine clippings. Letters and event records cover Runyon's association with Berea College, churches, and the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies. Also included are maps, travel records from a trip to Berlin, and a book of recipe clippings.
