Abstract:

The series consists of original newspaper clippings and photocopies of articles published in various newspapers throughout the state detailing events and issues concerning the Department of Law and Attorney General Robert Abrams, and reactions to them by the print media. There is a very small amount of related material present infrequently (such as a copy of a news release from the Attorney General's Office or an organization newsletter). The clippings were first gathered and maintained by the Executive Bureau Press Office through 1984, after which time the work was apparently continued through that office or by an unidentified successor unit.

The clippings document the department's involvement in such issues as consumer protection, bias crimes, abortion, gambling, obscenity, nuclear waste disposal, voting irregularities, sales fraud, environmental protection, disability benefits, and cable television regulation. Three boxes of clippings form a subset dealing entirely with the Tawana Brawley case, containing articles on Ms. Brawley and her advisors from 1987 through 1993 (with later dated material focusing on the political activities of Al Sharpton).

Local, regional, and national press are represented in the series (there are large amounts of clippings from the New York Times, Albany Times Union, and Wall Street Journal). Clippings are loosely bunched in folders according to the week/month of publication; there is no name or subject access. Some clippings were provided through commercial clipping services.

This accretion contains photocopies of news clippings of editorial endorsements for Robert Abrams as a candidate in various elections. The clippings were collected by Timothy Gillles, director of policy and communications to the attorney general.

This accretion contains news clippings related to issues and events of concern to the attorney general's office. Some of the clippings are in the form of faxes. Much of the material relates solely to the Tawana Brawley case.
