The Los Feliz Improvement Association Collection includes board minutes, general correspondence, by-laws, president’s reports, newsletters, newspaper clippings, and membership lists from 1922 to 2002. In addition, the collection contains a descriptive historical survey of all the homes located in the Los Feliz neighborhood. The collection details the role the organization played in the development of the Los Feliz neighborhood, and has been arranged in three series: Administrative Files (1922-2000), Correspondence (1932-1999), and Special Project Files (1930-2001).
Series I, Administrative Files, contains general records regarding board membership and committee memberships, as well as minutes of the board’s monthly meetings and have been divided into two subseries: General Administrative Files (1927-2000) and Minutes (1922-1999).
