A Directory of Rural Organizations. [Revised October 1977.]
National Rural Center, Washington, DC.
The purposes of this directory are to provide a ready reference for individuals and organizations with rural interests; to provide a sense of perspective on the various professions, ethnic groups and special concerns represented by national organizations with rural interests; and to facilitate cooperation among organizations with similar priorities. Each organizational entry (N=130 entries) is coded according to lobbying, membership, research and/or service categories; the code(s) appear at the bottom of each entry and in the index at the back of the directory. Each entry includes: organizational name and address and telephone number; contact person's name; a brief description of the organization including membership, staff and other relevant statistics; and organizational publications. Information regarding these organizations is drawn from a few individuals and a few published sources including: the "Encyclopedia of Associations", Volume I, tenth edition, Margaret Fisk, Editor; "Who's Involved With Hunger: An Organization Guide", Patricia L. Kuntzer and Timothy X. Sullivan, Editors; and "Research Centers Directory", fifth edition, Archie M. Palmer, Editor. (JC/EJ)
