Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
This box contains correspondence, filed court documents, memoranda, notes, research, and press materials related to Evans v. Romer, City of Topeka v. Movsovitz, Lester v. State of Kansas, David S v. Ouchita, Biggers v. Emmans Center, In Re: Laura J. Roscoe, and Utah Student Group Case.
The order in which these materials came to Princeton has been maintained.
These records were sent to Princeton as part of an ongoing records review at the ACLU; although there may be some relationship between boxes in this collection, records have, for the most part, been described on a box-by-box basis and the relationships between boxes have not been described.
Some confidential records have been removed from the collection by the ACLU prior to being transferred to Princeton University. Additionally, as confidential records are discovered by Mudd Library staff during legal restriction reviews, these records are removed and periodically returned to the ACLU.
Approximately 1.5 linear feet of materials pertaining to the case Weaver v. Nebo School District were removed from the collection and returned to the ACLU in August 2015.
- Processing Information
This collection was processed by Maureen Callahan during the course of several transfers in 2011 and 2012 and by Rachel Van Unen in 2015-2017. Descriptive metadata was created by staff at the American Civil Liberties Union archives before transfer to the Mudd Library. Finding aid written by Adriane Hanson and Maureen Callahan in April 2011 and updated upon further accruals by Rachel Van Unen .
