The J.A. Armfield Papers consist primarily of items relating to the Greensboro Police Department, ca. 1979-1983, where Armfield was employed. Materials pertaining to the November 3, 1979 anti-Klan march that left five protestors dead comprise the bulk of the papers. Included are a police operations plan, posters, flyers, and newspapers articles. The J.A. Armfield Papers is one of numerous small collections forming the Miscellaneous Collection.
