The personal papers of Alice Martin, a civic-minded African-American woman known for her charitable nature and community service, consist primarily of correspondence, employment and war records, photographs, and realia. Martin dedicated her time to her church, affordable housing consortiums, and community services for the economically disadvantaged and elderly in the County of San Luis Obispo. She was among the black family members who came to the area in the early 1940s as their husbands or other relatives were stationed at Camp San Luis Obispo, a training base for the U. S. Army.
