Biographical or Historical Information
The Council admitted men as members in 1934 and changed its name to the North Carolina Legislative Council. Due to a conflict with the interim Legislative Council of North Carolina (an official state body) the Council changed its name in 1969 to the North Carolina Council for Social Legislation.
In 1973 membership included twenty state-wide civil, religious, professional and social organizations, and totaled more than 375,000 members.
