Papers collected by Ewen regarding civil rights work in Mississippi, primarily in the fall of 1964. The collection includes Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee proposals for future work, outlines of programs and projects, material from workshops and meetings, and similar papers. Also present are reports, November 1964, of jointly sponsored SNCC-COFO (Council of Federated Organizations) projects throughout the state, and some COFO correspondence, notes of meetings, and food and clothing aid applications, also from November 1964. A folder of materials concerning Robert U. Jones, a Corinth, Mississippi crusader against racism, contains copies of his “newsletter,” and a 1965 letter to Ewen summarizing his work. All items in the collection are copies; originals were photocopied and returned to the donor.
