Series VI may be of interest: Series VI, Resources by Organization, include correspondence between the WOA and related organizations as well as printed material documenting the work of those organizations. This alphabetically arranged list includes a broad cross section of U.S. and African organizations concerned with issues in Southern Africa. Series VII, Resources by State/Region, documents WOA's interaction with and monitoring of Southern Africa-related events and programs throughout the United States. Series VIII, Resources by Topic, is divided into three sub-series: Country Files, Economic and Foreign Policy Issues (U.S. interaction with Southern Africa), and Miscellaneous. The Country Files are strongest in documentation of events and issues in Angola, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. Of particular note are materials related to church activities and reactions in these countries. Economic and Foreign Policy issues documented in Series VIII include the arms trade, boycotts, divestment and investment in South Africa, espionage, international economic and trade issues, and sanctions. This material should be consulted in conjunction with the WOA program materials of Series IV, which document WOA positions and actions on the various issues.
The materials consist of correspondence, press releases, oral history transcripts, objects, and printed material documenting Yale student involvement in the 1970 May Day rally in New Haven, Connecticut and published materials collected by the donor as a stringer for the "New York Times" related to Yale's student strike, the anti-war movement, and the Black Panthers trial in New Haven. Also included are publications related to anti-war activities nationally. Some posters and broadsides in Accession 1971-A-004 that were originally located in box 2 are now located in box 6.
The records of the Coalition to Stop Trident are arranged in three series and primarily document the activities of several anti-nuclear groups in Connecticut protesting against the development of the Trident military defense system. The manuscript group also holds a number of collected materials which serve to place the activities of these groups into the context of the broader national and international disarmament movements in which they took part. The administrative records of the Coalition to Stop Trident and of its predecessor, the Trident/Conversion campaign, are particularly interesting because they give an excellent example of the processes, discussions, theories, and principles common to the organization of grassroots movements. The numerous files on the demonstrations held to protest nuclear arms generally and the Trident system specifically contain substantive information which can be used to reconstruct the history of the disarmament movement in Connecticut and Southern New England. There is also ample documentation of the philosophy behind the peace and disarmament movements.
The administrative records consist of the records of NRDC’s founding director, John H. Adams; records of Board of Directors meetings; and organization-wide publications. The John H. Adams records document many aspects of NRDC’s founding and first decade of work in environmental law and activism. They include extensive correspondence, publications, reports, memoranda, and legal documents. Most notably among the organization-wide publications, the annual reports offer a detailed year-by-year summary of NRDC's activities.
