The Woodlawn Trustees, Incorporated, is a non-profit real estate development firm incorporated in Delaware on December 12, 1918, by textile manufacturer William Poole Bancroft (1835-1928). It subsumed Bancroft's earlier for-profit venture, The Woodlawn Company, which operated from 1901 to 1926. The Woodlawn Trustees are responsible for maintaining affordable housing in the city of Wilmington and for the orderly development of large tracts of suburban land, mostly located in Brandywine Hundred between Concord Pike and the Brandywine Creek and running north from Rockland Road into Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
William P. Bancroft was a founding member of Wilmington's Board of Park Commissioners and donated a large block of family land for Rockford Park. Bancroft was concerned about the orderly growth of cities and convinced that the city would soon outgrow its boundaries. He thus began to buy large tracts of farmland north and west of the city, which he intended to be developed in a planned, rational manner, with ample allowance for parks and other open space. In order to carry out these operations, he formed The Woodlawn Company in 1901. The company's first activities were within the city limits, where it built and rented the "Woodlawn Flats," blocks of row houses and apartments for working people between 1903 and 1914, and the Bancroft Parkway from 1912 to 1932, a tree-lined residential street with a wide planted median running north-south on the west side of town.
To carry out his larger goal of orderly growth after he was gone, Bancroft placed his land in a trust. Local charitable organizations were to hold stock in the trust and use the income from real estate development to fund their activities. While active development of the rural properties was put on hold by the Depression and World War II, the Trustees were able to construct a number of housing developments after the war, including Alapocas, Woodbrook, Sharpley, Edenridge, and Tavistock. Other land was banked by being leased for farming or as parkland. However, the Trustees discovered that the only way to subsidize their low-cost rental housing in the city and remain solvent was to seek profits like any commercial developer. This meant constructing conventional suburban tract housing developments and strip malls aimed at middle-class buyers.
This tension between the founder's vision and commercial reality was exposed during the 1960s, compounded by contemporary developments in the Civil Rights movement. In 1960, Woodlawn acquired the failing Citizens Housing Corporation (CHC), which William Bancroft's wife, Emma C. Bancroft (1848-1929), had been a stockholder. The CHC provided low-cost housing for African American people on Wilmington's east side. Conversely, multiple of Woodlawn's suburban developments included restrictions that prohibited the sale or rent to any nonwhite person when first established. This revealed the seemingly discriminatory practices of Woodlawn against the African American community in their housing developments, which arguably contradicted Bancroft's original purposes for the organization. Pressure for change primarily came from the Wilmington Monthly Meeting of Friends, which sought to hold the Trustees to the founder's Quaker beliefs, and from Martha Ann du Pont, who sued the Trustees from 1972 to 1974 on the grounds that their refusal to sell a suburban house as a home for neglected children constituted racial discrimination. During the same period, the IRS challenged the Trustees' tax-exempt status.
By the mid-1970s, external pressures and the unsettled financial climate of recession and stagflation had pushed the Trustees into considering the sale of their remaining assets. However, beginning in the mid-1980s, renewed growth in the Concord Pike Corridor between Wilmington and West Chester, Pennsylvania, greatly enhanced the value of its holdings, although the development has taken the form of strip malls of national chains and big-box stores, with other lands still banked for farming as a green buffer.
The 1960s and 1970s were years of challenge for the Woodlawn Trustees. They prepared volumes of information and documents used in the hearings for the revocation of Woodlawn's tax-exempt status and subsequent suits with the U.S. Government and the State of Delaware for back taxes and the claims of discrimination. The pressure was so great that in the 1970s, the Trustees were preparing plans to sell all their assets. Nevertheless, Woodlawn continued to plan and develop urban and suburban growth.
The growth continued into the twenty-first century resulting in the thorough development of residential and commercial structures. Due to the popularity of a "new" interstate highway with convenient exits to Brandywine Hundred, the focus of shopping shifted from Wilmington to the northern suburbs. Woodlawn promoted wise planning in the growth of the new commercial hub, such as the Brandywine Commons Retail Center and the continued development of the west side of Concord Pike. The integration of open space and greenways persisted with the furious pace of construction of restaurants, hotels, office buildings, and professional businesses on lands leased or sold by Woodlawn. The organization also took on new philanthropic endeavors through the expansion of Bancroft Parkway by constructing a new site for the Woodlawn Branch Library, made available rent-free to the Wilmington Institute Free Library, and a Pedestrian Bridge, granted to the City of Wilmington. These endeavors by Woodlawn allowed them to carry on the legacy of Bancroft and his vision in pursuing development for Wilmington and the surrounding community.
Series are arranged by function.
Scope and Content
The records of the Woodlawn Trustees include charters, minutes, officer lists, directors' correspondence, real estate records, property maps, reports, financial records, photographs, drawings, and newspaper and journal articles on the history of the Trustees and the Bancroft family. Subjects covered include the development of the city park system and the Bancroft Parkway, the building and maintenance of the "Woodlawn Flats," the Citizens Housing Corporation, historic properties, the development of post-World War II suburbs, the Quaker beliefs of the Trustees and discussions withing the Society of Friends over their development activities and the disputes over racial discrimination in housing and segregation in the suburbs, and the personal papers of William Bancroft and the Bancroft family.

This subseries includes several reports and lists of the lands transferred to the City of Wilmington for parks beginning with the purchase of Brandywine Park in 1886 to 1887. There is evidence in Scharf's History of Delaware of an unsuccessful attempt to create a park in Wilmington earlier in 1868 when funds for a park were not a priority. Much information is included on the development of a park system during the subsequent ninety-three years in the city. Bancroft's creation of the Wilmington Board of Park Commissioners in 1883 is recorded, as well as his subsequent transfer of lands to Wilmington, followed by Woodlawn's later gifts. Also included is Woodlawn's donation in 1981 of 500 acres to the State of Delaware as an addition to the already existing Brandywine Creek State Park. Records are included about the dedication ceremony for BCSP and plans for developing greenways throughout New Castle County.

Leases and deeds subseries include deeds written between 1862 and 1915, as well as deed restriction documents for the communities constructed in Brandywine Hundred. A Woodlawn lawyer later suggested the deed restrictions for communities constructed by Woodlawn for seventy-five years to be unenforceable once the properties were sold.
Financial records have been arranged into three subseries: Ledgers and journals; Financial records, journal entries, audits, and check stubs; and Staff wages and benefits.
Ledgers and journal subseries include segments of time between 1904 and 1985 with information about trial balances, rent accounts in the "Flats," the Citizens Housing Corporation, and the Brandywine Hundred farms. In addition, expenses for buildings in each of the three housing areas are part of this subseries. The trustees also kept records of labor distribution per housing cost estimates, general journals for properties in Pennsylvania, and analyses of net profits and quarterly income comparisons.
Financial records, journal entries, audits, and check stubs subseries contain handwritten financial records, computer-generated journal entries, audits, check stubs, stock and bond history, Woodlawn contributions, and denied contributions. In addition to audit reports, there are confirmation letters to banks to release account information, Woodlawn's tax information, land transaction lists, quarterly financial reports for select months, and information on tax credits for rehabilitating low-cost housing. Investment Statements and bank statements are included. Contains files leading to an agreement with Loomis-Sayles & Company to manage Woodlawn's assets, periodically report and monitor investments, and to project future trends.
Staff wages and benefits includes records for salaries, benefits, and labor distribution in select years of employment.

Also included is information about staff bonuses, officers' compensation, Delaware's work safety program, labor costs as part of site expenses, and bank statements for pension assets.
Legal issues series is arranged into three subseries: Woodlawn's Tax Exemption Revoked; Woodlawn's Housing Policy Challenged; and du Pont v. Woodlawn Trustees, Inc.
Woodlawn's Tax Exemption Revoked subseries: In April 1966, the Woodlawn Trustees received a notice from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service stating that Woodlawn owed the IRS $103,466 for back taxes. Woodlawn responded that their Corporation was tax-exempt and would not pay the taxes. A long process ensued to determine Woodlawn's tax status and finally ended with Woodlawn suing the United States to recover back taxes. The following records begin with the original claim from the IRS and then all of the evidence and exhibits collected by Woodlawn during the hearings and trial.
In 1927 the U.S. Internal Revenue Service determined that Woodlawn was exempt from paying taxes. In 1963 the IRS revoked the tax exemption, declaring that the Trust was violating the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 by receiving revenues from a business unrelated to its original purpose--namely, profits from real estate rentals and sales. The revocation was made retroactive to 1951, with more than $1,000,000 owed to the federal government. This subseries contains lengthy records filed with the IRS about Woodlawn's original mission, proof of prior tax exemptions, the testimony of officers of Woodlawn, the company's historical documents proving that Woodlawn's history is one of a philanthropic nature, and finally, the decision of the IRS in 1972. Having first paid the amount owed to the IRS and the IRS having decided in Woodlawn's favor in the tax exemption issue, Woodlawn sued the U.S. Government for rebates on their payments and won. However, as a result of the tax law of 1969, a portion of which pertained to restrictions on non-profit institutions, Woodlawn decided to avoid the restrictions which would prohibit the company from doing its work and decided to pay all future taxes. Woodlawn continues to pay taxes today.
Woodlawn's Housing Policy Challenged subseries contains files about Woodlawn's housing policy and the need to integrate the "Flats," as well as their properties in New Castle County. In September 1963, the Wilmington Monthly Meeting sent a letter to Philip G. Rhoads and other Woodlawn Trustees who were members of the Monthly Meeting. The letter proclaimed a need to end discrimination in all housing. The Meeting also established an Open Housing Committee, presumably to discuss open housing with the Woodlawn Trustees.
Concurrent with the 1963 revocation of its tax exemption, Woodlawn Trustees, Inc. was challenged by the Wilmington and Philadelphia Friends Meetings to adhere to the original aims and purposes of William Bancroft. Wilmington and Philadelphia Friends Meeting claimed that Woodlawn's expansion to residential and commercial real estate activities in Brandywine Hundred was never intended by their founder. The Friends Meeting in Wilmington was also concerned that Woodlawn's housing policy was too restrictive and did not permit integrating African American families with Caucasians in Woodlawn's developed communities. Correspondence, newspaper clippings, minutes of meetings, and final agreements with the Delaware Human Relations Commission are included here.
Du Pont v. Woodlawn Trustees, Inc. subseries: As the issue of integrating Woodlawn's urban housing became more heated in 1972, the State Human Relations Commission, the City of Wilmington, the New Castle County Housing Division, and the local media insisted that Woodlawn also look toward integrating Brandywine Hundred and provide homes for African Americans. Woodlawn, at one point, had even considered selling off all their suburban properties due to the pressure of building upscale homes in Brandywine Hundred, which they knew would either be too expensive to buy or to lease by those for whom they were intended. They decided to prepare a study to determine the feasibility and cost of building homes up to their then-current standards in Brandywine Hundred to serve an eager African-American population. The study, coupled with a new Master Plan, confirmed that building homes in New Castle County to satisfy the County's housing needs would be too costly and not feasible. As the integration issue was still burning, and as the Wilmington Monthly Meeting seemed more uncomfortable with the current business dealings of the Woodlawn Trustees, a third concurrent legal issue arose. Mrs. Martha Verge du Pont attempted to purchase a home from Woodlawn in the upscale county neighborhood of Tavistock for use as a home for needy children. When Woodlawn refused to sell the property for that purpose, Mrs. du Pont sued Woodlawn for discriminating against African American children who might inhabit the house. The files in this subseries describe the lawsuit of du Pont v. Woodlawn Trustees, Inc.
Woodlawn offered the Tavistock house for sale at $75,000, and Mrs. Martha Verge du Pont sent a deposit for $7,500 as a 10% down payment, thereby accepting Woodlawn's offer. Woodlawn, after a discussion with Mrs. du Pont, who planned to open a home for needy children, changed their mind and rescinded the offer. Legal action by Mrs. du Pont ensued.
Woodlawn's housing policy was again challenged in 1972 by Mrs. William du Pont, who sued Woodlawn for discrimination in its housing developments. All the records filed in the lawsuit are included in this subseries, including testimony, newspaper clippings, and correspondence. In 1974 the suit was dismissed with prejudice.
Public relations and communications are organized into two series: Presentation scripts; and Newspaper clippings, brochures, and accolades.
Presentation scripts subseries consists of images used for the orientation of new Trustees or for educating the Board of Directors about the progress of an ongoing project. Frequently the slides would be used with scripts for speeches at events at which the Trustees would publicize the long-term efforts of Woodlawn to preserve open space or to tell the story of the vision of their founder William Poole Bancroft. Boxes 29, 30, and 31 contain slides, photographs, and slide show scripts that would have been used for all the aforementioned purposes. The slides are arranged by title as much as possible and by the date on which the photos were taken. Only the highlights are listed.
Contains slides used for educating the Board and civic organizations. Also contains photographs of Woodlawn's properties in the City of Wilmington and New Castle County.
Woodlawn's propensity for detail was outstanding. As soon as the technology was available, the Trustees commissioned as many aerial and ground pictures of potential sites for construction and construction-in-progress as necessary to satisfy their penchant for perfection in planning. There are slides, photographs, and collages depicting most of their construction projects beginning in the 1940s, especially later in Brandywine Hundred. In addition, when renovating the "flats," Woodlawn took full advantage of the use of photography to report progress at Board Meetings and for presentations to the general public. Historical pictures include reproductions of a painting of William Bancroft, painted in 1906.
Newspaper clippings, brochures, and accolades subseries consist of major events, people, and places of interest to the Bancrofts and Woodlawn and their employees. Also included are records acknowledging Woodlawn's work in providing affordable housing, conservation and preservation of open space, and their donations of parkland to Wilmington, New Castle County, and the State of Delaware.
Reports, studies, and pamphlets series is arranged into three subseries: Research and comments about Woodlawn and studies prepared for the Woodlawn Trustees; Materials relevant to conservation and preservation of open space; and Material relevant to conservation and preservation.
Research and comments about Woodlawn and studies prepared for the Woodlawn Trustees subseries contain print materials that Woodlawn commissioned to chronicle important people, places, deeds, and events in the history of Woodlawn. Board members and Woodlawn's "neighbors," from time to time, needed chronological clarification of Woodlawn's mission and future expectations. There are reports written by professional information specialists, using board minutes, letter books, and historical correspondence to tell the story of Woodlawn for the company's future officers and employees. This subseries includes materials about the Quaker faith written by those who influenced early trustees. Additionally, there is the inclusion of a forestry study by Thomas White commissioned by Woodlawn in which White examines the forests of Woodlawn property and produces an economic analysis and other reports.
Materials relevant to the conservation and preservation of open space subseries are documents that would enhance the Woodlawn Trustees' understanding of better ways to preserve and conserve open space for the benefit of the general public. This subseries comprises print materials best describing various aspects of the preservation and conservation of open space and orderly urban and suburban planning.
Materials pertaining to zoning and miscellaneous reports subseries consist of documents about the New Castle County Department of Planning, development and zoning plans, Hagley Museum and Library archival information, and history of specific landmarks in Delaware.
William Bancroft records series is arranged into nine subseries: Genealogy and biographies, William P. and Emma C. Bancroft correspondence, William P. and Emma C. Bancroft philanthropy, Financial records, William P. Bancroft and Joseph Bancroft & Sons, William Bancroft and the Religious Society of Friends, Bancroft family residences, Miscellaneous records, and Artifacts.
The papers of William Poole Bancroft, Emma C. Bancroft, and their children include family genealogies; pedigrees; and biographies, including material on the family's antecedents in England, personal correspondence, letterbooks, the material on their charitable activities, particularly their interest in African American education and Quaker schools and colleges, and Samuel Bancroft Jr.'s interest in collecting Pre-Raphaelite art, which he bequeathed to the Delaware Art Museum. William P. and Emma C. Bancroft's philanthropy also significantly consists of the construction plans and opening of the Woodlawn Branch Library and Pedestrian Bridge in Wilmington. In addition, Financial records and William Bancroft and Joseph and Sons subseries generally contain bank statements, check stubs, credit statements, tax information, balance sheets, annual reports, and board correspondence. Other subseries in the William Bancroft records include information about the history of Thomas Garrett and Quakers in Delaware, William Bancroft's residences, and some miscellaneous records and artifacts about both William Bancroft and Woodlawn.
Records less than 25 years old are restricted. Litigators may not view the collection without approval.
