Series XVI: Daniel L. Schlafly Material on the 1968 Crisis, 1967-1969

The Daniel L. Schlafly Material on the 1968 Crisis series consists of the papers that PhD candidate in history, Daniel L. Schlafly, Jr., collected between 1968 and 1969. Although Schlafly was not involved with any of the organizations participating in the strikes, he gathered a significant quantity of student and administrative literature and publications. These items primarily concern the activities that occurred on campus following the student protests that began on April 23, 1968. There are also some items that pre-date April 22, which pertain to the student groups who contributed to the campus crises. Furthermore, Schlafly occasionally annotated flyers or memoranda with his own notes, though most of his writing only indicates the date. In 2011, Schlafly donated these papers to the University Archives. The series has been separated into two subseries that are both arranged chronologically: Chronological Files and Publications.

Subseries XVI.1 Chronological Files

This subseries contains student and administrative literature that was collected by Daniel L. Schlafly from April 1968 to April 1969. The materials almost exclusively relate to campus unrest, although there are some regarding the Vietnam War and Morningside Heights housing protests. Included are flyers, fact sheets, statements, and other ephemera that were created by student groups, both protesting and anti-protest. Schlafly also collected the official statements made by the administration. Schlafly oftentimes wrote dates on undated items, allowing for the chronological files to cover almost every day of the student strikes and their lasting effect. Files are arranged chronologically.
