Series 7 consists of newspaper clippings, press releases, and promotional materials concerning Margaret Tante Burk's career at the Huntington Park Savings and Loan, which began in either 1962 or 1963. By 1964 she had become assistant vice-president, the first woman to hold such a post in the history of the savings and loan. In 1965 she opened the Wilshire Highland office of the Huntington Park Savings and Loan in her capacity as vice-president and also manager of this branch. In 1966 she became Vice President for Public Relations for the entire savings and loan. The materials in this collection contain no business records of her tenure at the Huntington Park Savings and Loan, only publicity materials, eg, announcements in local newspapers re her career. It does contain, though, material on the Hancock Park Art Council, an arts organization that the Huntington Park Savings and Loan Association sponsored under Margaret Tante Burk's guidance; see folders 11, 12. The titles that Margaret Tante Burk assigned to the folders are found in parentheses at the beginning of the "Contents" field.
