The collection is arranged into series: GENERAL FILE, CCPAF AND AFFILIATE ORGANIZATIONS, CCPAF FINANCES and NCAHUAC AND AFFILIATE
In 1952, the Citizens Committee to Preserve American Freedoms (CCPAF) was formed to oppose the House Committee on Un-American
Activities (HUAC). CCPAF argued that HUAC violated the First Amendment rights of the citizens who were called before it to
testify about their political beliefs and associations. To further the work of the organization, CCPAF held rallies, placed
newspaper ads, distributed pamphlets, initiated letter writing campaigns and put on fundraising events.
