Description
Newsletters, fliers, magazines, correspondence, ephemera, and snapshot photographs documenting the anti-Vietnam War movement in the San Francisco Bay Area. The papers appear to be those of Marjorie Colvin, an antiwar activist who edited the Vietnam Day Committee's magazine Did You Vote for War? (1965) and was involved in the Bay Area Peace Action Council, which among other activities, worked to get a referendum on the ballot in San Francisco calling for the immediate withdrawal of troops from Vietnam.
