Papers of Alicia Kaplow, a lawyer who headed the UW Friends of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, a SNCC support group, while she was a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Although the largest portion of the collection consists of general material, mainly printed SNCC mailings regarding activities in Mississippi, chapter records consist of a constitution, notes of its first meetings in October 1964, flyers relating to programs and meetings, correspondence with the national SNCC headquarters and with SNCC volunteers in the South, mailing lists, and dues and contributions receipts. There is also a folder of flyers pertaining to anti-Vietnam War protests, and two photographs, including one of Alicia Kaplow.
