The Library received an unsolicited donation from Mrs. Mary Hendrix of Oak Park, California. We do not know any of the history of this material. It appears it was being given to a “Pat” from a fellow conservative unknown woman. Handwritten notes on the material indicate they shared an interest in fighting communism and conservative causes of the early 1960s.

The material touches on many continuing themes – the creeping socialization of America and its subsequent loss of liberty, the superiority of the capitalist system, public education, and the need to retain American Christian values. But the overriding concern in the material is the deadly earnest fight against communism and the communist threat of world domination.


This collection is available in whole for research use. Some folders may still have withdrawn material due to Freedom of Information Act restrictions. Most frequently withdrawn material is national security classified material, personal privacy, protection of the President, etc.
