The Greater Los Angeles Press Club was formed following World War II. The Club operated a café and cocktail lounge for their members from 1960 through the 1980s, but as interest in gathering there waned, offices were leased instead. During the early 1970s the Press Club actively defended freedom of the press and the rights of newsmen, protesting the arrest of journalist William Farr. The collection consists of newsletters and administrative files generated by the Greater Los Angeles Press Club, which document such events as the arrest of journalist William Farr during the Charles Manson trial in the early 1970s, correspondence regarding numerous First Amendment issues, and the club's annual Headliner Awards ceremony.
