Subseries 2C: Capital Punishment Project, 1877-1991
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Project Files series contains the records of twelve of the ACLU's projects, which each addressed an area of civil liberties violations. Project records typically consist of case files, research files, and project publicity and correspondence. The best documented projects are the Children's Rights Project and Women's Rights Project, and to a lesser extent the Arts Censorship Project, Capital Punishment Project, and Reproductive Freedom Project.
The boxes are arranged alphabetically by subject or document type.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
Personnel records, confidential legal records, and mold damaged records were separated from this series during processing.
These papers were processed with the generous support of the National Historical Publications Records Commission and the John Foster and Janet Avery Dulles Fund.
