Collection Summary:

The collection’s materials include leaflets, newspapers clippings, pamphlets, and photographs pertaining to the politics and activities of Students for a Democratic Society from roughly 1966-1974. The collection is arranged primarily by topic, with the leaflets being arranged chronologically. Topics covered include Vietnam, racism, ecological issues and labor rights. A large proportion of the materials relate specifically to the SDS presence at Michigan State University

Historical Background:

The materials contained in this collection were created and collected by members of Students for a Democratic Society during the late 1960s and early 1970s. SDS was a leftist political organization opposed to the Vietnam War and in favor of a more participatory model of democracy. In the 1960s and early 1970s, it constituted the intelligentsia of the American left.
