Collection Description

Adaline Guenther (1897-1975) was Executive Director of the University Religious Conference from 1945 until her retirement in 1959 and had been its chief administrator since its inception in 1927. She was one of the founders of UniCamp (a student-run summer camp for underpriveleged children, Studen board (an interdenominational discussion group of campus student leaders), and Project india (a student-to-student approach to fighting Communism in India in the 1950s), and through these programs significantly shapped UCLA's extracullicular life. She was a woman of great mental and spiritual vitality with a gift for guiding others to examine their goals and shape their minds. This is apparent throughout the entire collection, from the long letters from servicemen in W.W.II answering her questions about racial discrimination in the armed forces to the book reviews she prepared at 77 for the members of her retirement community. The journal she kept in the year before her death records her perceptions of the "victories and defeats of aging."
The first seven boxes are early American Veterans Committee documentation, mainly in the form of letters to Guenther from approximately 150 servicemen formerly connected with the University Religious Conference at UCLA. She edited their letters into a newsletter ("10845") and held together the correspondence which evolved into the AVC. It was conceived as a counterforce to the American Legion, a veterans' organization of educated liberals who would shape the postwar world. The original letters have a wide range of personality and subject matter_. There are highly articulate soldiers writing about their reaction to the atom bomb, a Japanese-American and a conscientious objector writing from their respective internment camps, wives of soldiers writing personal letters to Guenther, soldiers writing to Guenther out of loneliness and boredom. They talk about peace, democracy, racial equality, religion, army life, UniCamp, revisions to revisions of the AVC official policy statements. Gil Harrison wrote voluminously, involved in deciding every detail of AVC development. There are also letters from prominent people agreeing or declining to be associated with AVC. Eleanor Roosevelt is the most significant of these.
Guenther's later correspondence includes letters from Mayor Tom Bradley, Bishop John Krumm, Rabbi Edgar Magnin and other leaders in the fields of religion, education and civic life. John Ehrlichman was one of the students who passed through the URC; Guenther was repelled by Watergate but attempted through correspondence with Judge John Sirica to have Ehrlichman's sentence lightened because of her personal loyalty to Ehrlichman and his wife.
Adaline Guenther was the subject of an oral history at UCLA; she discusses the AVC at some length. Another oral history was compiled from interviews with people who participated in Project India and contains some comments on Guenther.
The item count below includes clippings and small candid photographs; formal studio portraits are in Box 10. Many AVC people are represented.
