Documenting the history of a Los Angeles educational reform organization, the holdings of the LAAMP (Los Angeles Annenberg
Metropolitan Project) Collection consist of textual materials: subject files, correspondence, minutes and agendas of committee
meetings, reports and studies, brochures, and publications on educational reforms.
Part of its half-billion dollar initiative to resolve the crisis of the urban public school system in the United States, the
Annenberg Foundation allocated fifty three million dollars to fund the Los Angeles Annenberg Metropolitan Project (LAAMP)
in 1994. The Board of Governors for LAAMP had submitted a proposal to The Annenberg Foundation on November 28, 1994, detailing
the structure and goals of LAAMP. The Annenberg Foundation was created by Walter H. Annenberg (former ambassador to Great
Britain from 1969-1974), who supported the foundation through his publishing fortune. The money was allocated with the stipulation
that matching funds from other sources would more than double the amount, with the purpose of creating a financial resource
to shape educational reform in Los Angeles.
