Scope and Content

This collection contains materials pertaining to Virginia Lampe's career as a community activist and advocate of mental health and "mental retardation" services, as well as relating to her time Congressman Joel Broyhill's campaign as chairwoman. The materials include task-force reports and meeting minutes for the numerous mental health and regional planning boards on which she served. The collection also inludes Broyhill campaign-related items. The creators of papers in Series 1 used language to describe those living with mental illnesses and developmental disabilities that society recognized as offensive by the time the collection was reprocessed in 2019. This language is retained in folder titles in quotation marks to preserve the context in which materials were created.

The series is separated into two series:

Series 1: Mental Health Work (1960s-1980)- This series contains Lampe's work in the mental health field. She worked for nearly two decades to help better the lives of the mentally ill and developmentally disabled.

Series 2: Broyhill Campaign Materials (1962-1974)- This series contains Lampe's work as chairwoman and co-chairwoman on Congressman Broyhill's campaign. Contents include correspondence with Broyhill, campaign officials, and other elected officials, campaign fundraising, advertising, public relations, and Broyhill/Lampe in the news.
