The Cleodia D. and John W. O'Quinn Collection (OQC) consists of papers and photographs which reflect the O'Quinn's lifelong participation in Lawndale Community affairs and youth organizations. Papers in the OQC include biographical data, correspondence, speech drafts, awards, testimonials, programs, certificates, schedules, news clippings, and other printed materials. Dates range from around 1949 to 1984. The documentation of Boy Scout Troop #3365 and the O'Quinn Royal Gladiators Drum and Bugle Corps is the most complete, and the correspondence of Cleodia D. O'Quinn is relatively extensive. The rest of the record, however, is spotty and categories often contain only a few scattered items.
