Biography/History

Dennis E. Haggerty (1927- ) was a prominent figure in the disability rights’ movement from the
1960s through the 1980s. As an attorney in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Haggerty helped secure
individuals’ rights in education, protection, and advocacy through litigation, education, and
involvement with numerous local and national advocacy organizations. He worked alongside and
in organizations such as the Pennsylvania Association for Retarded Children (PARC and now the
ARC of Pennsylvania), the National Center for Law and the Handicapped, and the American Bar
Association to accomplish these achievements. Haggerty participated in landmark cases such as
the Right to Education Case and Halderman et. al. v. Pennhurst State School and Hospital. He
also provided his knowledge of the law and intellectual disabilities to numerous organizations
such as Research for Better Schools, the President's Committee on Mental Retardation, and the
National Advisory Council on the Definition of Developmental Disabilities. The outcomes of
Haggerty’s achievements gave people with disabilities freedom from institutions, equal access to
education, and equal rights in the community.
Dennis Haggerty was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 16, 1927. He served two
terms in the United States Navy and graduated from Temple Law School in 1955. He began his
law career at Novaritis and Haggerty and later at Brisco and Haggerty. Haggerty’s early law
career consisted of standard repayment work.
Haggerty married his wife Eileen in 1951 and they had one son and three daughters. It was when
Haggerty's son, Dennis (Boomer), became extremely ill at a young age and the illness resulted in
an intellectual disability that Haggerty's direction changed. This event made Haggerty realize the
vast changes that needed to occur in the rights of the disabled for individuals and their families.
It is here Haggerty began to be involved in the Disability Rights’ Movement. His initial
involvement began with the Delaware County Association for Retarded Children (DELARC and
now the ARC of Delaware County), which he joined and eventually became the representative to
the state of Pennsylvania.
Dennis Haggerty later began as the chair on the Residential Care Committee of the PARC. While
on this committee, he investigated Pennhurst State School and Hospital. Prompted by the death
of patient John Stark Williams, Haggerty began posing as a doctor and going to Pennhurst to
examine the facilities. The investigations helped Haggerty expose the deplorable conditions of
the institutions and convinced Haggerty that the only alternative was to close the institution.
Haggerty and PARC president Jim Wilson contacted Thomas Gilhool, a respected civil rights
attorney who would later work for the Public Interest Law Center of Philadelphia. Under the
advice of Gilhool, the first battle in the disability rights’ movement would be to improve the
conditions for individuals in education because if the institutions closed, children with
disabilities would need the schools to be accessible and open to their entry. This became the
Right to Education Case, or the PARC v. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The resulting
consent decree, also known as the PARC Consent Decree, opened Pennsylvania’s Schools to
children with disabilities. The State was given one year to identify children were not being
served or were being underserved. It was this suit where Haggerty acted as a court appointed
Master for the State of Pennsylvania. This case was later followed by the Halderman et. al. v.
Pennhurst State School and Hospital, where Thomas Gilhool, as lead attorney for the Public

                                                                                        4|Page
                                     Dennis E. Haggerty papers


Interest Law Center of Philadelphia, represented PARC as a co-plaintiff. The case eventually
closed Pennhurst but took over 14 years to complete.
In Pennsylvania, Haggerty was actively involved in numerous organization including: a board
member at Elwyn Institute; a consultant for Research for Better Schools; a board member
Developmental Disability Advocacy Network (DDAN and now the Disability Rights Network of
Pennsylvania); a board member of the Education Law Center; an advisory board member of the
Delaware County Mental Health and Mental Retardation Board (Delaware Country Mental
Health/Intellectual Disability Board); and a board member for the Public Interest Law Center of
Philadelphia. In collaboration with these advocacy organizations, Haggerty helped advance the
rights of the disabled. For instance, as part of the Delaware County Mental Health and Mental
Retardation Board, Haggerty aided in the creation of the Mental Health and Mental Retardation
Act of 1966, which initiated drug, alcohol, mental illness, and intellectual disability programs.

Involvement in Pennsylvania Disability Rights Movement was only the beginning for Haggerty,
who began to work on national and international issues through involvement in numerous
organizations including: a board member for the National Center for Law and the Handicapped;
a member and chair of various committees for the National Association for Retarded Children
(NARC or now The ARC); a member of the National Advisory Council on Developmental
Disabilities; and a member of the United States Task Force on the Definition of Development
Disabilities. He was a consultant for the President’s Committee on Mental Retardation beginning
with President Lyndon B. Johnson to President William J. Clinton. Haggerty was also a member
of the American Bar Association, where he began the first committee dealing with intellectual
disabilities and the law in the Family Law Section. With this committee, Haggerty conducted
workshops at the American Bar Association’s annual conventions. It was here that he also got his
start with the National Center for Law and the Handicapped.

In addition to his long-term involvement with many organizations, Haggerty participated in
numerous conferences, symposiums, and events both locally and internationally as a speaker and
lecturer for the cause of education the public and promoting disability rights. For instance, he
was a guest lecturer at the International Convention for Retarded Citizens in Montreal, Canada
and he was the Vice Chair of the Symposium on the Legal Rights for the Mentally Retarded in
Columbus, Ohio. He also did local lectures in Delaware County, such as a lecture at the Drexel
Hill Junior High School in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania.

Dennis Haggerty’s skills as a lawyer and experience as a parent of a child with an intellectual
disability enabled Haggerty to be an asset to the disability rights’ movement in Pennsylvania and
throughout the United States. His role as an innovator in disability rights, his drive to educate
others, and his vast involvement in organizations working for the movement made him a key
player. His participation in the Disability Rights’ Movement helped initiate
deinstitutionalization, created equal access to education, and eventually gave people with
intellectual disabilities equal opportunities in the community. His advocacy effort continues to
effect and inspire the meaningful inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in the
community.

Series II. Correspondence and subject files, 1959 February, 1964-1980, undated

This series contains correspondence and subject files that did not pertain to any specific
organization in the Dennis Haggerty’s papers. The correspondence mostly relates to Haggerty’s
business and his involvement in the disability movement. The correspondence is very
incomplete. For instance, the folder titled “A” represents a potential alphabetical filing order for
correspondence; however, the other files were empty and Haggerty did not appear to have
implemented the method. Not necessarily affiliated with his work in the disability movement, the
subject files contain Haggerty’s business papers and personal papers. They contain materials
such as the papers from the School of the Holy Child and Haggerty’s Alma Mater, Temple Law
School. Of interest is the professional information compiled by Haggerty, such as a listing of his
affiliations and his resume. Folders are arranged alphabetically by title and then chronologically
by date.

Subseries B. Delaware Country Mental Health/Mental Retardation Board, 1967-1974,
undated

This subseries documents Haggerty’s participation on the Delaware County Mental
Health/Mental Retardation Board, which as of 2012 was called the Delaware County Mental
Health/Intellectual Disability Board. The Board’s responsibility was to establish programs for
drugs, mental illness, alcohol, and intellectual disabilities. These responsibilities are documented
through agendas, correspondence, minutes, plans, proposals, and reports. The bulk of the
subseries is meeting files, which typically contain updates and reports on various services offered
for mental health and to intellectual disabilities in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. There are
also proposals and information regarding the creation of a group home. Folders are arranged
alphabetically by title and then chronologically by date. The records span from 1967 to 1974, but
Haggerty’s resume states that he was involved with the board for nine years. These records do
not account for the additional two years.

For more information on zoning and group homes, see Series III., Subseries A. Delaware
Country Association for Retarded Children and Series V. Topical reference files.

Subseries C. Developmental Disabilities Advocacy Network, 1977-1979, undated

This subseries contains correspondence, minutes, agendas, and research associated with Dennis
Haggerty’s involvement as a board member on the Developmental Disabilities Advocacy
Network in Pennsylvania (DDAN). Formed to aid in the execution of the Developmental
Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act in the State of Pennsylvania, Developmental
Disabilities Advocacy Network’s goals were to determine the extent of discrimination in
Pennsylvania and to be a protection and advocacy agency. As of 2012, Developmental
Disabilities Advocacy Network was known as the Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania.

The records in this subseries consist of Developmental Disabilities Advocacy Network’s early
years, where the goal was to analyze the extent of discrimination in Pennsylvania. The papers
from April to July of 1977 are incorporation papers. The majority of the materials are advocacy
training manuals and Board of Director’s files. Folders are arranged alphabetically by title and
then chronologically by date.

Subseries D. Elwyn Institute, 1965-1979, undated

This series documents Dennis Haggerty’s involvement as a board member at the Elwyn Institute
for the years 1965 to 1979. The Elwyn Institute began as a live-in residential facility for children
and young adults with disabilities in Philadelphia. As of 2012, the Elwyn Institute no longer
offered residential services, but it offered program and training services. Haggerty’s interest in
the Elwyn Institute was on not only a professional level, but also a personal level because his son
Dennis (Boomer) resided at the Elwyn Institute for a period. The series contains administrative
records, brochures, correspondence, financial records, meeting minutes, memorandum, and
reports. Folders are arranged alphabetically by title then chronologically by date.

                                                                                        18 | P a g e
                                      Dennis E. Haggerty papers




The bulk of the subseries is the Directors’ meeting and general files. These files contain agendas,
articles, brochures, employment information, facilities information, minutes, memorandum, and
published materials for Elwyn Institute. Through reports, the records also document the activities
several committees at Elwyn Institute. Of interest in this subseries is papers relating to the
establishment of the Elwyn-Nevil Center for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired and the conflicting
opinions of individuals regarding its creation.

There is a material tipped in the folders that appears unrelated to the Elwyn Institute. According
to Haggerty’s resume, he was involved at Elwyn Institute until at least 1994, but the records only
document his involvement from 1965 to 1979.

undated

The records in this subseries relate to Dennis Haggerty’s time as a member, Senior Vice
President, Council, Committee Chair, and Board Member of Pennsylvania Association for
Retarded Children (PARC). PARC, known in 2012 as the Arc of Pennsylvania, was an advocacy
network for individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families. It was instrumental in the
investigation and eventual suit against Pennhurst State School and Hospital (Halderman et. al v.
Pennhurst State School and Hospital) and the Right to Education Suit (PARC v. Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania or the resulting PARC Consent Decree). Dennis Haggerty was involved in the
Right to Education Suit through PARC and in his role as a court appointed Master. The
Pennsylvania Association for Retarded Children subseries is organized into three sub-subseries
in the following order: General files, Pennhurst State School and Hospital, and Right to
Education Case.

Sub-subseries 1. General File, 1962-1980, 1987, 1999, undated

This sub-subseries documents PARC activities not directly related to the Right to Education
Case or Pennhurst, although information on these topics may be included in some of the folders.
The sub-subseries contains brochures, case files, correspondence, docket sheets, ephemera, fliers,
minutes, newsletters, newspaper clippings, and planning files. Folders are arranged
alphabetically by title and then chronologically.

The majority of this sub-subseries is represented by convention files, correspondence, and
general files. The convention materials include agendas, convention publications and brochures,
correspondence, minutes, travel brochures, and travel information. The general files are typically
a collection of materials printed and distributed by PARC. Some materials were mailed directly
to Haggerty in packages and never separated. They include updates, newsletters, fliers,
calendars, and correspondence. The case files are of interest because they include Haggerty’s
personal investigations and research into various state schools and hospitals. They contain
correspondence, handwritten notes, memorandum, and newspaper clippings regarding
investigations of facilities such as Polk State School and Hospital and the Mitchell Home.

Although there are significant gaps in the dates, various meeting files for committees such as the
Residential Care Committee, Governmental Affairs Committee, Legal Advisory Committee, and
the Task Force on Commitment Procedures are represented in this subseries. It also contains
Board of Directors’ meeting minutes and agendas. For more information on the Residential Care
Committee, see Sub-subseries 2. Pennhurst State School and Hospital.

This sub-subseries documents the Pennhurst State School and Hospital’s investigation and the
resulting court case, Halderman et. al. v. Pennhurst State School and Hospital. Pennhurst State
School and Hospital was located in Spring City, Pennsylvania. It was a self-providing, live-in
facility with 50 buildings and approximately 2800 residents. Dennis Haggerty investigated the
facility while he was Committee Chair of the Residential Care Committee in 1968 and 1969. The
sub-subseries contains correspondence, court cases, handwritten notes, newspaper clippings,
publications, and reports. Folders are arranged alphabetically and then chronologically.

Although it is incomplete, of special interest is Haggerty’s story of his personal investigation into
Pennhurst State School and Hospital. Haggerty’s story combined with the evaluation of the
facilities by the American Association on Mental Disorders and the hearing report of the Special
Committee to Investigate State Inspection Institutions under Jurisdiction of the Department of
Welfare, offer a glimpse into the Pennhurst State School and Hospital. Also of interest are the
conflicting views of parents regarding the closing of Pennhurst reflected in letters and newspaper
clippings. There is also interesting ephemera from Pennhurst in the subseries, including an

Sub-subseries 3. Right to Education (Pennsylvania Association for Retarded Children
Consent Decree), 1969-1979, undated

This sub-subseries documents Dennis Haggerty’s involvement as a member of Pennsylvania
Association for Retarded Children in the Right to Education Case, which resulted in the
Pennsylvania Association for Retarded Children Consent Decree in 1971. PARC won the Right
to Education Case against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Secretary of the Department
of Education, the State Board of Education, and the Secretary of the Department of Public
Welfare. The resulting agreement allowed access all school-aged children, previously denied
public education, to attend public schools. The agreement also ordered the development of two
programs: the Commonwealth Plan for the Identification, Location and Evaluation of Mentally
Retarded Children (COMPILE) and Commonwealth Plan for the Education and Training of
Mentally Retarded Children (COMPET). COMPILE provided for the creation of 29 local task
forces and a state task force to ensure that the Right to Education agreement persevered. PARC
and the Pennsylvania Department of Education and Public Welfare jointly organized COMPILE
and COMPETE.

This subseries includes correspondence, court cases, fliers, memorandum, newsletters, reference
materials, and reports. Of interest in the sub-subseries are promotional materials by PARC,
including “Childhunt” materials, which document PARC’s effort to find children with
disabilities and place them in the public education system. Also of interest in the sub-subseries is
Testimony before U.S. Senate Subcommittee on the Handicapped on Senate Bill 6, Education for
all Handicapped Children Act, which gives information on some of the outcomes of the Right to
Education Case and areas that needed improvement. For additional materials on the Right to
Education Suit, see Series V. Right to Education Suit (Pennsylvania Association for Retarded
Children Consent Decree).

Sub-subseries 1. Commission on the Mentally Disabled, 1975-1979, undated

As of 2012, the Commission on the Mentally Disabled was called the Commission on Mental
and Physical Disability Law. In the records, the Commission on the Mentally Disabled is largely
represented by two large projects, the Developmental Disabilities State Legislative Project and
the Bar Funding Program. The Bar Funding Program was a grant-funded program that provided
legal services to the developmentally disabled through state and local bar associations. The
Developmental Disabilities State Legislative Project was a grant-funded project that created
legislative models for states regarding the rights and protection of the developmentally disabled.

This sub-subseries contains materials collected by Dennis Haggerty during his time with the
Commission on the Mentally Disabled. The materials consist of agendas, correspondence,
guides, informational materials, grant applications, memorandum, minutes, newspaper clippings,
proposals, publications, reports, and survey. Of interest in this sub-subseries are the Model Acts
for States produced by the Developmental Disabilities State Legislative Project. These models
are produced in booklets and the topics include zoning, guardianship, and education. Folders are
arranged alphabetically by title and then chronologically by date.

Subseries G. National Task Force on the Definition of Developmental Disabilities, 1976-
1978

This subseries represents records from Dennis Haggerty’s time as a member of the National Task
Force on the Definition of Developmental Disabilities. The task force’s responsibility was to
define developmental disabilities in order to create more clarity in the Developmental
Disabilities Act, but also so that states and organizations had a synonymous meaning of
developmental disabilities.

This subseries consists primarily of correspondence from numerous organizations and state
programs associated with intellectual disabilities. There are also a number of meeting files
including agendas, minutes, and reports. Of interest in this subseries are the correspondence
various organizations and states regarding the definition of developmental disabilities. Each

Subseries H. President’s Committee on Mental Retardation, 1962, 1967-1980, 1986, undated
(Bulk 1967-1977)

The President’s Committee on Mental Retardation, called the President’s Committee for People
with Intellectual Disabilities in 2012, began with President Lyndon B. Johnson, who formally
established the committee in 1966. The goals of the President’s Committee on Mental
Retardation were to inform the Secretary of Health and Human Services and the President about
topics affecting individuals with intellectual disabilities and the intellectual disability field.
Dennis Haggerty served as a consultant for the President’s Committee on Mental Retardation
and was active with presidential committees dealing with intellectual disabilities beginning with
Lyndon B. Johnson to William J. Clinton.

This subseries documents Dennis Haggerty’s involvement as a consultant with the President’s
Committee on Mental Retardation. This subseries contains agendas, brochures, conference
materials, correspondence, memorandum, minutes, newspaper clippings, newsletters,
publications, travel materials, and reports. The newspaper clippings are from Haggerty, but there
are also a number of packets of newspaper clippings created by a newsclipping service for the
President’s Committee on Mental Retardation. The publications cover a variety of topics
including the history of the Disability Rights’ Movement, the advances in the Disabilities Rights’
Movement, advocacy, transportation, and residential services. There are a number of reports in

                                                                                       50 | P a g e

the subseries, for instance "MR 72: Island of Excellence." These reports are to the president and
discuss various advancements in the disability rights and the areas that need improvement.

Folders are arranged alphabetically by title and then chronologically by date. The bulk of the
materials date from 1967 to 1980. Haggerty’s resume states that he was involved with the
President’s Committee on Mental Retardation until approximately 1994, but these materials are
unaccounted for in these records.

Series V. Right to Education Case, Masters (Pennsylvania Association for Retarded
Children Consent Decree), 1969-1974, undated

This subseries documents Haggerty’s involvement as a Master in the Right to Education Case
and the resulting Pennsylvania Association for Retarded Children Consent Decree. Haggerty’s
involvement in the Right to Education Suite was with PARC, but he also served as a court
appointed Master. In 1972, PARC won the Right to Education Case against the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania, the Secretary of the Department of Education, the State Board of Education,
and the Secretary of the Department of Public Welfare. The resulting agreement allowed access
all school-aged children denied public education to attend public schools. The agreement also
ordered the development of two programs: the Commonwealth Plan for the Identification,
Location and Evaluation of Mentally Retarded Children (COMPILE) and Commonwealth Plan
for the Education and Training of Mentally Retarded Children (COMPET). COMPILE provided
for the creation of 29 local task forces and a state task force to ensure that the Right to Education
agreement persevered. PARC and the Pennsylvania Department of Education and Public Welfare
jointly organized COMPILE and COMPETE.

The series contains agendas, articles, correspondence, court cases, meeting minutes, plans,
reference materials, and reports. Of interest in this series are materials documenting the
outcomes of the Right to Education Case, including the programs COMPILE and COMPET and
the reports of the task forces assisting with carrying out the agreement. For additional materials
on the Right to Education Case, see Series III., Subseries E. Pennsylvania Association for

Series VI. Topical Reference Files, 1950, 1955-1980, 1987-1990, 1999

This series includes materials collected by Dennis Haggerty for reference on specific subjects.
Haggerty called the files “Reference” and labeled the materials into many categories, but the
most prominent categories were “Mental Retardation” and “Legal.” In order to make the series
more usable, it was arranged using narrower subjects or material type. The materials include
articles, bibliographies, books, brochures, handwritten notes, journals, newsletters, newspaper
clippings, and pamphlets. Some of the materials are duplicated throughout the collection; for
instance, a pamphlet printed by PARC about housing may be located in the PARC series and in
the Topical reference files under housing. Topics covered in the reference files include advocacy,
assistance, commitment, delinquency, education, facilities, guardianship, hearing impairment,
housing, law enforcement, programs, rights, sterilization, and workshops. Some of the materials
types include court cases, newspaper clippings, and publications. The folders are arranged
