Administrative/Biographical History: The Mullanphy-Webster Center or Project (aka Webster-Mullanphy Preschool) was originally located at 2118 Mullanphy St. near the Pruitt-Igoe Housing Project in downtown St. Louis. In the summer of 1966, the participants moved to a house known as the "Chocolate House" because of its exterior color (2249 Mullanphy Street). Several students in the Department of Social Sciences lived there and did sabbatical reports on the preschool that was operated under Webster's auspices. The Webster-Mullanphy Preschool was housed in the Monsignor Butler Neighborhood Center at 2331 Mullanphy Street. The program began in January, 1965.

Scope/Content: Contains mainly clippings and student reports on projects done at the center.

Conditions of Access and Use: The collection is open for research use by appointment only.

Conditions Governing Reproduction and Use: Copyright restrictions may apply.
