Alexander W. McAlister Papers, 1886-1946

Alexander W. McAlister Papers, 1886-1946

Alexander Worth McAlister was founder and president of Pilot Life Insurance Company and a leader in the North Carolina Conference for Social Service and the North Carolina State Board of Charities and Public Welfare. Correspondence, writings, pictures, and other material of Alexander W. McAlister chiefly includes correspondence with associates in business and civic organizations and versions of published and unpublished writings by McAlister. Most items date from 1930 through 1943, although there is some earlier correspondence and some writings from as early as the 1880s. Well-documented in these papers are McAlister's activities as a member of the North Carolina Conference for Social Service and the North Carolina State Board of Charities and Public Welfare, as well as his association with various civic organizations in Greensboro. Much of the correspondence and many writings relate to particular concerns of McAlister, including prohibition, the New Deal, golf, child welfare, prison reform, the Community Church in Greensboro, and education. Although there is some material relating to McAlister's business activities, documentation in these papers of his work as an insurance executive and in other business ventures is incomplete. There also is little personal material regarding McAlister's family and close friends.
