This collection contains a compilation of material relating to student activism and the student publication the Progressive Review. The collection highlights the student body's campus and international awareness and documents the left-of-center perspective held by the Progressive Review and numerous students.
Collection Description & Creator Information
This collection contains flyers, various committee reports and minutes, proposals, clippings, correspondence, judicial proceedings, personal notes, a video, and ephemera. The materials in Series 1, Organizations and Individuals, and Series 2, General, are largely independent from the magazine itself. These records are a compilation from various organizations and people, most unaffiliated with the publication or operating in a different capacity. Series 3, Correspondence File of John G. Oakes, however, documents the founding and early years of the Progressive Review magazine.
Organizations and individuals represented in this collection include those that opposed the Gulf War of 1991, those that rallied for Sexual Harassment/Assault/Advising Resources and Education (SHARE), and the Undergraduate Student Government. In some cases, activist causes rather than groups are included where it makes sense to do so; these include on-campus ROTC, on-campus recruitment by organizations with discriminatory hiring practices, and the University's alcohol policy.
- Collection Creator Biography:
Initially a monthly magazine but now a quarterly, the Progressive Review is a journal of news, analysis, and progressive political thought dedicated to social activism. It "seeks to present issues of importance that are not adequately covered elsewhere," emphasizing the discussion of lesbian, gay, and bisexual issues; race and ethnicity; gender and sexuality; and national politics. Articles are contributed by students, faculty, and the administration of Princeton University.
Series 1 and Series 2 were donated to the University Archives in 1994 by Jack Iwashyna '94, an editor of the Progressive Review (Accession Number AR1994-066). Series 3 was donated in 2008 by John G. Oakes, founder of the Progressive Review, (Accession Number AR2008-105).
