Today we want to highlight the work of Jim Mc...

Today we want to highlight the work of Jim McElhatton, a freelance reporter and private investigator whose research in our civil case files contributed to his article “The Homeless Man who Made Alexandria Civil Rights History“ in the Alexandria Times which chronicled James Lomax and his important but forgotten role in Virginia’s civil rights history. You can see his article at the following link (https://alextimes.com/2018/05/jameslomax/), and see his description of his research here at the National Archives at Philadelphia below: Years ago, my family and I lived in an old rental house in Alexandria, Virginia across from a church where volunteers fed lunch to the homeless. Among the same faces I would see day after day was a heavyset African American man with a long gray scraggly beard. His name was James Lomax. He did not talk very much. But he displayed a quiet generosity that set him apart. When he must have thought nobody was looking, James sometimes set plastic bags by our front of our door filled with cast off toys and clothes intended for my young children. After a while, our family finally saved up enough to buy a house of our own and so we moved away. I would still see James in and around town once in a while. Then, I stopped seeing him altogether. I would like to be able to say I tried to find out what happened. But the truth is, life moved on. And I had not thought much about James Lomax in several years. But that changed suddenly not long ago when I visited the National Archives in Philadelphia. A few months ago, I was researching an old civil rights case, Jones v School Board of Alexandria, a 1958 lawsuit that desegregated public schools in Alexandria. As a freelance reporter for the local weekly paper, the Alexandria Times, I wanted to learn more about this case. After all, the old newspaper clips only told so much: Four years after Brown v. Board of Education, seven African American families petitioned Alexandria’s school board to let their children attend whites only schools. The school system refused. So the families and NAACP sued. I took off from work from my day job as a private investigator to have a look at the original case file. I did not know what to expect. I had never visited a National Archives facility. But within ten minutes of my arrival, I had researcher card in hand and the staff laid out original case files that had not been seen or touched in many years. As I paged through the exhibits, I noticed grades and report cards for the 14 school children plaintiffs. I scanned the names of the students then stopped, stunned, to read about a brilliant second grader named James Lomax. I couldn't be, I thought. But it was. It took a few weeks to confirm the student and homeless man were, indeed, the same person. I eventually found James in an assisted living center in Maryland. He had lost a lot of weight. He lay curled up on a bed. I re-introduced myself. He said he remembered me. Then, without a word, I handed him an old wire services newspaper article showing a photo of him as a second grade boy crossing a police barricade. It was the first time public elementary schools were integrated in the Commonwealth of Virginia. “Yeah,” he said. “That’s me.” I later wrote a story about James and his important but forgotten role in Virginia’s civil rights history. Without the National Archives, though, nobody in Alexandria could have ever known, let alone imagined, that the homeless man we walked by countless times did more good by age 8 than most of the rest of us will do in a lifetime. Because that is the point of it all. You just never know. -- Jim McElhatton is a freelance reporter and private investigator; he can be reached at jimmcelhat@gmail.com or follow him on Twitter at @Jim_McElhatton Article: https://alextimes.com/2018/05/jameslomax/

    James Lomax desgregated Alexandria schools - he's now in a Maryland assisted living facility | Alexandria Times | Alexandria, VA
    For years, James Lomax spent his afternoons on the same curb across from an Old Town church that serves meals to the homeless. Heavyset with a long gray beard, he kept to himself and, at times, could seem a little surly. But he also displayed a quiet grace and generosity.

Ever wonder if the National Archives and Records Administration has records of aliens and UFOs in our holdings? If so, you’re in luck! Our colleague Joseph Gillette, an Archivist on a cross-training assignment in the National Archives History Office, wrote a series about the Air Force’s Project Blue Book, as well as its precursors, Project Sign and Project Grudge. The purpose of these projects was to investigate the increasing number of unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings throughout America and determine their nature and any potential threat. This blog posted, entitled “INVASION! (of privacy),” is the first in a three part series which explores the Project Blue Book and discusses records of UFOs in the holdings of the National Archives! You can find Part II, “UFOs: Natural Explanations,” and Part III, “UFOs: Man-Made, Made Up, and Unknown,” on the Pieces of History blog here: www.prologue.blogs.archives.gov https://prologue.blogs.archives.gov/2018/04/09/invasion-of-privacy/
