THE THOMAS AND DOROTHY LEAVEY CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF LOS ANGELES RESEARCH COLLECTION
CHARLES LUCKMAN PAPERS, 1908-2000 (CSLA-34)
SERIES 10: Speeches
Series Size: 20 archival document boxes, 3 oversize boxes, 1 scrapbook
The largest series in the collection, this series contains copies, both partial and whole, of speeches by Charles Luckman; newspaper and magazine articles concerning his speeches; and resource materials. The arrangement of the speeches suggests that Luckman had them organized into subject files, at different stages of his career. He certainly kept track of them; see Box 1, Folder 23.
The dates of the speeches run from 1946 to 1990. Those from early in his career reflect Luckman’s generally progressive approach to labor/management relations and addressed the concerns of post-World War II America. Luckman’s speeches also reflect his general business and architectural philosophy, providing insights into these areas in post-World War II America. Of interest are his speeches against the New Left of campus unrest in the 1960s that he made while on the Board of Trustees of the California State system; see, for example, Box 9, folder 14, and Box 11, Folder 8.
