Repository description (CRHP): The Civil Rights Archive of the Queens College Special Collections and Archives collects published and unpublished works relating to civil rights activities such as personal papers, community materials, organizational records, non-print materials, and artifacts. It also conducts oral histories to supplement its collections. The archive is particularly strong in materials documenting the civil rights work by Queens College students during the early 1960s.
The Civil Rights Archive is an active participant in its communities, including the students and alumni of Queens College, the larger civil rights activist community, and institutions with complementary holdings.
Repository description (extant): The Queens College Archives, part of the Benjamin Rosenthal College Library, comprises 1,400 cubic feet of primarily college records from 1937 to the present. Collecting began formally in the late 1960's, supplementing earlier efforts to preserve largely unorganized records.
