GUIDE: Baskin, Alex. The American Civil Liberties Union papers : a guide to the records of A.C.L.U. cases, 1912-1946. D-10529 This set was an early reproduction of the ACLU archives undertaken by the New York Public Library, later incorporated into the Scholarly Resources film "American Civil Liberties Union : The Roger Baldwin Years (1917-1950)." The original archival materials were gathered into bound volumes devoted either to clippings or to correspondence, with each volume then relating to a single type of record (although sometimes there are several series in a single volume). Also included are legal cases and some pamphlets published by organizations other than the ACLU. The Center has acquired only a portion of volumes microfilmed in this set. Included below is a listing of volumes available in this uncataloged collection, which can be cross-indexed with the earlier print guide or online version: 27-39, 52-57, 72, 82-91, 95-98, 105, 111-126, 135-136, 388-396, 401-405, 411-420, 448-455, 466-482, 513-562, 594-568, 693-707, 718-748, 767-803, 811-818, 828-835, 878-892, 915-929.
