The records of the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund at The Bancroft Library are incomplete. Included in the collection are agendas,

The Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund (SCLDF) was established in San Francisco in 1971, with funding from the Ford Foundation
and the Sierra Club Foundation. Sierra Club Legal Committee members Phillip Berry, Donald Harris, Fred Fisher, and Michael
McCloskey were instrumental in its creation. James Moorman was its first executive director. It is legally and financially
separate from the Sierra Club, able to solicit tax-deductible donations and represent non-Sierra Club clients.
