Abstract:

Records of the Student Peace Union (SPU), a national organization of students and youth (1958-1964) opposed to the nuclear arms race, that bridged the gap between the old peace movement and the opposition to the war in Vietnam. Included are minutes, convention papers, correspondence, publications, miscellaneous local records, and miscellany. Both the collection as a whole, and the correspondence which comprises two-thirds of the collection, are most complete for the period 1961 through 1963. Subjects treated range from routine communications with local chapters to publications and exchanges over policy with many of the individuals and organizations then most important in the peace movement.

Prominent correspondents include: Alfred Hassler, Brad Lyttle, David McReynolds, Linus Pauling, Robert Pickus, David Riesman, Bayard Rustin, Norman Thomas, and representatives of the American Friends Service Committee, the Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy, the Committee for Non-Violent Action, the Fellowship of Reconciliation, the National Student Association, Turn Toward Peace, and the War Resisters League.
