Abstract:

Consists of personal correspondence, organizational correspondence, memoranda, flyers, position papers, newsletters, books, pamphlets and magazines.

This is a broad-based collection that includes material from a left-of-center social and political viewpoint. It spans two decades and relates to a wide variety of James Miller's activities and interests during that time. On the national level, anti-war and peace organizations and socialist organizations, like Indochina Peace Campaign, Friendshipment, Friends of Indochina and New American Movement, Democratic Socialists of America are included. Presidential elections for 1980 and 1984 are also represented, including the candidacies of Jesse Jackson and Ronald Reagan. Concern for the state of the economy is evidenced by Miller's participation in the Alternative Budget Coalition (formerly the Coalition on Budget Priorities) and Guns or Butter. Locally, Cleveland scholars will find information on local politics, especially the mayoralty of Dennis Kucinich including his election, the recall campaign and the city's default. Issues such as tax abatement, city council elections, Muny Light, civil rights, and desegregation are also detailed in the collection. Groups like Cleveland Women Working and Commonworks are also represented. Miller's activities in neighborhood development organizations, various tenants' groups for tenants' rights, especially in public housing, are also well represented. Material from the Cleveland chapters of the DSA, NAM, Friends of Indochina form another important source for local history. On the state level, material on Ohio Public Interest Campaign (OPIC) covers plant closings, tax abatement, election campaigns and boycotts. There is also a small selection of material concerning Tom Hayden and the Campaign for Economic Development. Internationally, many of the groups that James Miller belonged to had an interest in the leftist parties of other countries. The collection contains material from or about Israel's Shelli Party, the United Workers' Party of Israel (Mapam); Japan's Socialist Party and Communist Party; and the Communist Party of Australia. Another major international issue represented in the collection is the conflict in Central America, particularly in Nicaragua and El Salvador. Broader issues reflected in the collection include black power and civil rights, from the rise of the Black Panthers in the 1960s and 1970s to Jesse Jackson's campaign for the presidency in the 1980s; the woman's movement; and the fight for Gay and Lesbian equality.
