Abstract:

Records of a national coalition (1970-1973) that opposed U.S. involvement in the war in Vietnam. Although incomplete, the collection is revealing about NPAC's own activities and its often acrimonious dealings with the People's Coalition for Peace and Justice. Included are files on NPAC's internal structure, correspondence, financial records, publications, and other general records; activities files; and a small affiliate file.

Material relating to NPAC's internal structure includes announcements, agenda, and minutes for many meetings of the national steering committee and lists of members and affiliated locals.

General correspondence includes exchanges with various affiliates such as the Student Mobilization Committee which were most often written by national coordinators Stephanie Coontz and Jerry Gordon and by Ron Wolin and other staff members; legal correspondence relating to an investigation of NPAC by the House Internal Security Committee for its alleged socialist domination; and exchanges with international opponents of the war in Japan, Vietnam, and other countries.

Activity files relate to various actions and anti-war conventions in which NPAC participated, most notably those of April 24 and November 6, 1971, and April 22, 1972. Included here are correspondence and form letters, press releases, flyers, endorsements, clippings, logistical material, and resolutions submitted to conventions for debate.

Among the prominent correspondents are Bella S. Abzug, Alan Alda, Birch Bayh, Noam Chomsky, Alan Cranston, Leon J. Davis, Abe Feinglass, Richard Fernandez, Patrick Gorman, Mike Gravel, Philip A. Hart, Vance Hartke, Hugh B. Hester, Coretta King, Edward Koch, Allard K. Lowenstein, George S. McGovern, Emil Mazey, Stewart Meachem, Hans Morgenthau, Edmund S. Muskie, Sam Pollock, Charles B. Rangel, Pete Seeger, Louis Stokes, John Tunney, Roy Wilkins, and Leonard Woodcock.

The processed portion of this series is summarized above, dates 1970-1973, and is described in the register. Additional accessions date 1967-1972 and undated and are described below.
