Abstract:

Correspondence, minutes, reports, news releases, lists, financial records, and printed materials of the Minneapolis unit of a national organization established by William Allen White in 1940 to marshal public support for the Allied cause in Europe during World War II.

There is information on the unit's relationships with the national organization and other local units; speeches, letter-writing campaigns, the distribution of literature, and other efforts to influence public opinion; foreign policy and war issues such as neutrality, the exchange of destroyers for naval bases, national defense, the Lend-Lease Act, the Japanese oil embargo, the Atlantic Charter, and treatment of aliens in the U.S.; antistrike legislation; life in wartime Britain; and activities of other organizations, particularly Citizens for Victory, with which the committee merged in 1942.

Correspondents include Minneapolis chairman Edgar M. Jaeger, Joseph H. Ball, Clark M. Eichelberger, Richard P. Gale, Gordon A. More, John A. Morrison, Henrik Shipstead, Clifton M. Utley, and Oscar F. Youngdahl.
