 File — Box: 6

Scope and Content

From the Collection:

The Raymond Mohl Research Papers date from 1951 to 2014 (Bulk 1985-2011). The collection is comprised of four series including writings and talks, correspondence, subject files, and court cases. Of particular interest are Mohl's research subject files relating to civil rights in Florida, immigration within the New South, community activism in Florida, Harry T. Moore, Stetson Kennedy, the KKK, Black/Jewish relations, and Latino immigration.

Series 1: "Writings and talks, 1988-2014" primarily contains copies of Mohl's scholarly writings and talks. While many of Mohl's published articles can be found online, several talks and conference papers are either unpublished or variations of longer journal articles. The series is arranged chronologically.

Series 2: "Correspondence, 1985-2014" contains Mohl's written and e-mail correspondence pertaining to peer review, research, and developments in the urban history subfield. As one of the founders of the Journal of Urban History, scholars often sought out Mohl's expertise on related research endeavors. The series is arranged by format and chronologically.

Series 3: "Subject files, 1951-2014" contains Mohl's research subject files. Although Mohl is generally recognized for his pioneering work on urban history and national interstate construction, he wrote about civil rights in Florida, immigration within the New South, and community activism in Florida. Boxes four through fifteen contain subject files with copies of Mohl's archival research on Harry T. Moore, Stetson Kennedy, the KKK, and Black/Jewish relations, as well as an inordinate number of newspaper clippings and articles about Latino immigration for his article, "The Politics of Expulsion" (2014). Several of these boxes contain correspondence with individuals associated with his research. Box four, for example, holds Mohl's communication with the activist Stetson Kennedy through the early-1990s, which can provide insights on the civil rights movement as well as the Kennedy's engagement with current events. In addition to containing copies of Mohl's archival research for South of the South, boxes ten and eleven include his correspondence with civil rights activists Matilda "Bobbi" Graff and Shirley Zoloth and their families through the end of his life. Box eleven has original primary documentation gifted to Mohl by Elizabeth Verrick, an activist dubbed "Miami's champion slum fighter."

Series 4: "Court cases, 1992-1998" contains Mohl's consulting work and testimony as an expert witness on high profile housing discrimination cases, Adker v. Miami Dade County and Meek v. Miami Dade. Boxes fifteen through seventeen contain documents related to Mohl's involvement with these court cases.
