4 Title:   Habitat for Humanity International Records, Series 1.6: Papers - Newsletters  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Habitat for Humanity International, Inc  
  Dates:   1942-2013  
  Contents:  
The newsletters document information that Habitat for Humanity disseminated to its staff, volunteers, and the general public from its formative years on into the 21st century. The older portion of these periodicals represent some of the earliest documents in the Habitat for Humanity records. They provide insight into the development and operation of Koinonia Farm (now Koinonia Partners) and how Habitat for Humanity grew out of this small, interracial, Christian farming community in Sumter County, Georgia. The Koinonia newsletters also report on the intimidation and violence directed toward the farm--peaking in the late 1950s--because of its interracial status. Beginning in 1976, the periodicals focus on Habitat for Humanity as an established organization through publications like Habitat Happenings, Habitattler, Habitat World, and Habichat. New issues of Habitat World are continually added to the collection as they are published and received. Some of these newsletters share information about the internal operations of Habitat for an audience of volunteers and staff, while others report on major projects and events for a general readership.
