History of the Collection
In the Spring 1985, the College Archives received a collection of files relating to the strike of 1970. The material had been collected by Sarah Gordon '72 and David Allmendinger, Assistant Professor of History. The papers themselves describe the process of collecting examples of notices circulating during the strike (see Sarah Gordon's diary), and include evidence that Prof. Allmendinger solicited further contributions after the strike was over. This collection was merged with a few College Archives files from the strike of 1970. Many of the newsclippings may have been collected by the Smith News Office.
