Records, mainly 1972-1975, of the Indochina Peace Campaign (IPC), a national organization that was formed late in the anti-Vietnam war movement (1972) and which emphasized public education and legislative lobbying. Included are correspondence from IPC affiliates in California, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and other states in which the group was well organized; agenda, minutes, reports, and position papers relating to meetings and conferences of the national steering committee; and subject files. Of special note within the last section are speeches and writings by activists Tom Hayden and Jane Fonda, the best known of IPC's leaders; notes on an organizers' school; files on an encounter with Nixon security officials at the dedication of the Dirksen Library in Pekin, Illinois; and material on IPC's participation in the United Campaign including committee minutes and extensive notes about a 1974 visit to Saigon. Sound and video material in the collection is extensive and provides better documentation of Hayden and Fonda's activities than the manuscript collection.
