(Mss. 4467)

Container List

Scope and Content Note

The Stovall papers date from 1989_1992, but include electrostatic copies of original material dating from the 1970s and 1980s. They consist of Stovall's personal files regarding the Louisiana Coalition Against Racism and Nazism and related efforts to counter the influence of David Duke. (The official papers of LCARN are housed at the Amistad Research Center, Tulane University.) Much of the collection consists of copies. Items collected or produced by the Coalition include: correspondence, memoranda, information sheets, advertisement copy, press releases, transcripts of speeches by Duke, reports, research papers, copies of miscellaneous documents relating to Duke's past, newspaper and magazine clippings, ephemera, and bound resource packets. Two audio tapes (compiled by the Coalition) of excerpts from interviews with Duke in 1986 are also included. Materials concerning the creation/evolution science debate are also present.
