Scope and Contents: The Bumpass Cove-Embreeville Collection includes the materials community members accumulated to deal with a serious problem in their community. Included is information on organizations which dealt with environmental and health issues, as well as the involvement of these organizations with the community. Documents related to the establishment of the Bumpass Cove Citizens Group are contained in the collection, as is Roxy Wilson's scrapbook of newsclippings, which details the history of the landfill issue as reported by the Johnson City Press-Chronicle.

The papers from four community members relating to the Bumpass Cove Citizens Group, Incorporated, 1971-1981, reflect the evolution of a group of citizens responding to a threat of hazardous waste dumping in their community; the interaction with local, state and federal agencies, and other organizations involved with environmental and social issues; and the collection of research and resource materials about other community groups, landfills, chemical and hazardous wastes, and state and federal solid hazardous waste regulations.

The distinction between personal papers and organizational papers is sometimes vague. The majority of the papers were kept by various individuals in their own homes, and each of the four donors selected materials to be placed in the Archives of Appalachia.
