Series 1: Correspondence, 1986-2013
Collection Description & Creator Information
This collection consists of records generated by Nadine Strossen in her leadership roles with the American Civil Liberties Union and as professor of law at the New York Law School. Strossen's work addressed the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the United States Supreme Court, police brutality against Rodney King, the appointment of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and twenty-first century national security and immigration policies. The collection primarily consists of correspondence, press clippings, conference materials, and notes and transcripts from Professor Strossen's public appearances and speaking engagements.
Archivists at the ACLU re-arranged the contents of Strossen's correspondence chronologically across both "sent" and "received" material.
- Custodial History:
This collection was transferred directly to the custody of the ACLU Archives in the summer of 2008 by Jennifer Bellusci, Nadine Strossen's assistant, following Strossen's resignation as the ACLU's National Board President. The collection was transferred to Princeton University in April 2012.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
No records have been separated from this collection.
