Language of Materials
An artificial collection of materials documenting campus activism activities from 1962-1992.
This collection is organized in five series:
Series I: Civil Rights Era, 1962-1972; Series II: Fanning Takeover I, 1971-1972; Series III: Fanning Takeover II, 1986-1987; Series IV: South Africa Divestment, 1986-1990; Series V: CASE-J (Campus Action for Social Equality and Justice), 1992
Presumably gathered in part by Gertrude Noyes in preparation for her manuscript, A History of Connecticut College; additional contributions gathered by the College Archivist in the early 1990s. Material on divestment in South Africa presumably transferred by Judith Kirmmse, date unknown.
