Description
The collection contains correspondence, news clippings, photographs, flyers, and other material related to the Douglass Adair Symposia, a series of conferences and academic meetings that began in the 1980s and ran until at least 2008 at Cal Poly Pomona. The meetings focused on commemorating historical birthdays. The collection was donated by Dr. John Allphin Moore, the Cal Poly Pomona history professor who organized and served as director of the symposia.
Background
The Douglass Adair Symposia was a series of gatherings that Cal Poly Pomona history professor Dr. John Moore organized, initially with the idea of commemorating the Bicentennial of the American Constitution in 1987. The symposia was named in honor of Douglass Adair (1912-1968), a professor of history at Claremont Graduate School - now known as Claremont Graduate University - and the author of seminal essays on the late eighteenth century and the founding of America.
