Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


These records document the work of the ACLU's national office in the areas of civil rights, children and women's rights, freedom of speech (and all First Amendment questions), due process, the right to privacy, and church-state separation issues, among others, predominantly from 1970 to 2000. A large portion of the records are related to the numerous cases that ACLU was involved in related to a wide range of civil rights issues. The records also document the works of ACLU projects, notably the Arts Censorship Project, Capital Punishment Project, Children's Rights Project, Reproductive Freedom Project, Voters' Rights Project and Women's Rights Project, and the work of their Mountain States Regional Office, Southern Regional Office, and Washington Regional Office.

Collection History

Archival Appraisal Information:

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.
