James H. Sheldon papers, 1945-1971, bulk 1958-1964

Series IV: American Association of United Nations, 1956-1965

A considerable portion of the collection pertains to Sheldon's work with the American Association of the United Nations, and documents his activities within the organization between 1956 and 1965, with heavy emphasis on the years 1963 and 1964. This series is comprised of papers relating to the AAUN, most of which are correspondence, handwritten notes, meeting agendas, and membership lists. The series also features a booklet entitled "Manhattan Ethnic Group Distribution Statistics and Data," which is a detailed account of the ethnic demographics of Manhattan in 1960. While Sheldon may have consulted this booklet during JFK's campaign, it was found amongst his AAUN papers and has thus been included in this series.
