New Resource for Scholars - Rare audio and video recordings of John Birch Society


ISSI’s Center for Right-Wing Studies recently added a collection of rare audio and video recordings to its archival holdings. Transferred from their original format to CDs and DVDs, the collection includes recordings of workshops, lectures, films, spot ads, and other educational materials used by the John Birch Society in the 1960s and early 70s to recruit new members and promote right-wing causes. Dr. Christine Trost, CRWS Program Director, and Kelly Jones, UCB undergraduate research assistant, developed a detailed finding aid for scholars to use to search the collection. Read more about the collection and download its finding aid here.
