The Harold Nathaniel Reddick Collection contains correspondence, interviews, awards, and documents pertaining to the Civil Rights Movement and the Tampa chapter of the NAACP. Harold Reddick, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, worked as a porter for the Pullman Sleeping Car Company, eventually becoming involved in the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters (BSCP) for over 30 years. In 1939, Reddick moved to Tampa, where he served as vice-president of the Tampa NAACP in the mid 1940s. Reddick’s involvement helped steer the Tampa NAACP on a path that would serve as a model throughout the following decade. Dr. Jack Moore, former USF professor of American Studies, donated the Harold Nathaniel Reddick Collection in 1995.
