This document is part of a scrapbook that was compiled in 1956 and 1957 by Frances Albrier during her term as president of the San Francisco Chapter of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW). The scrapbook highlights the Chapter’s efforts to register voters and educate Bay Area residents on the importance of voting as a part of the Citizenship Education Project which was jointly sponsored by the NCNW and the National Urban League.
This telegram from National President Vivian Carter Mason to Frances Albrier requests that Albrier send a report on the Citizenship Education Project to the Heritage Foundation to be entered in a contest. The handwritten inscription below the text notes that the NCNW received the award from the Heritage Foundation of five thousand dollars. The telegram has tape marks in all four corners and is located between pages 46 and 47 in Frances Albrier's scrapbook (2010.60.1).
