Peter Hanauer has been involved in the nonsmokers' rights movement since early 1974, when he began to work with the Berkeley chapter of Group Against Smoking Pollution (GASP). In March, 1976, he co-founded California GASP, the organization that eventually became Californians for Nonsmokers' Rights (CNR) and then Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights (ANR). He has been co-author of one of the first comprehensive nonsmokers' rights ordinances in the country, which was adopted by the Berkeley City Council in April, 1977. He also co-authored California Propositions 5 and 10, the two statewide initiative measures that were placed on the ballot in 1978 and 1980 respectively, and he was the treasurer of the two statewide campaigns in support of the two measures. He was president of CNR between 1981 and 1983 and president of ANR between 1986 and 1987. During the years when he was not president of these organizations, he was on the Board of Directors of both CNR and ANR. Peter Hanauer is a co-author of the book The Cigarette Papers, which is an analysis of the papers in the Brown & Williamson Collection.

Scope and Content

Collection includes correspondence, publications of nonsmokers' rights groups, press clippings, campaign literature, legal briefs, and audio cassette tapes.
