CCNY Anti War Notices

“Nip Fascism in the Bud”
This collection contains 337 pamphlets, newsletters, and flyers, which were circulated at City College of New York during the 1930s and 40s by student political organizations, which included the Young Communist League, American Student League ROTC and The American Student Union. Many of the flyers are a call for membership, announce demonstrations, strikes or events while others seek to inform and politicize the student body by pronouncing resistance to Italian Fascism, support for Spain, or against the firings of professors. A notable example is a letter from Sherwood Anderson raising funds to defend Black men from being falsely accused of rape.
