The Students for a Democratic Society collection, 1966-1974 archive was organized, conserved, and inventoried with funds provided by the American Radicalism Collection endowment fund in honor and memory of Dr. Beth J. Shapiro (2005).
The materials contained in this collection were created and collected by members of Students for a Democratic Society during the late 1960s and early 1970s. SDS was a leftist political organization opposed to the Vietnam War and in favor of a more participatory model of democracy. In the 1960s and early 1970s, it constituted the intelligentsia of the American left.
The collection contains leaflets, newspapers clippings, pamphlets, and photographs created by members of Students for a Democratic Society and pertaining to the politics and activities of that group from roughly 1966-1974. A large proportion of the materials relate specifically to the presence of the SDS at Michigan State University.
