Abstract:

The Andrew Goodman Memorial Collection consists primarily of news clippings and other printed material related to the 1964 murder of three civil rights workers Andrew Goodman, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner, and subsequent events. There are also personal papers concerning Goodman, and letters of sympathy and remembrance written to the family.

The Personal Papers series, 1943-1964 consists of a small group of Andrew Goodman's personal papers. Of particular significance are items pertaining to Goodman's participation in Freedom Summer that include his application and a postcard postmarked June 21, 1964, written to his parents the day after arriving in Mississippi. Related papers include his cancelled check for a donation to SNCC, and printed material on the civil rights movement that he had collected.

The series Disappearance and Murder, 1964-1966 consists of statements, letters, an interview, a copy of the indictment of the murderers and associated items directly related to the disappearance and death of the three men, Goodman in particular. Of special note is a transcript of an interview (June 27, 1964) with Robert McNamara, Secretary of Defense, about Buford Posey, a white Mississippian who suspected that the Ku Klux Klan had killed the three men, along with a statement (November 24, 1964) furnished to the FBI by Horace Doyle Barnett, one of the murderers, detailing exactly what had occurred. There are also sympathy letters from many political and civil rights leaders. In addition to detailed articles about the disappearance and murder, there is a copy of the indictment charging eighteen men with murder.

The Memorial Activities and Legacy series, 1965-2010 covers a wide array of events that commemorate the lives of the three men. Most of the collection consists of news clippings and other printed material focusing on the memorial activities that were sponsored by the Andrew Goodman Foundation and one of its projects known as the Chaney, Goodman, Schwerner Coalition of 1989. Additionally, the emergence of Carolyn Goodman as an activist for justice is documented in clippings and speeches she delivered.

The series, Aftermath, 1989-2008 contains news clippings and other printed material about the Ku Klux Klan in Pennsylvania in 1989, serving as a counterpoint to the Coalition which sponsored the South-North Freedom Caravan that same year. Other events discussed in this series include the Edgar Ray Killen trial and the documentary film, Neshoba, about the attempts at reconciliation in Neshoba County where the murder and Killin's trial took place.
