    Scope and Contents note

    The Radical Right collection is comprised of pamphlets, leaflets, newspaper and serial issues, newsletters, bulletins, circulars, and other printed matter issued by right-wing organizations and individuals, largely in the United States. The materials relate to anti-communist, patriotic, fundamentalist, racist, anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi, and other right-wing political movements, primarily since World War II. They include materials relating to world government, education, race relations, fluoridation, and other issues. The collection contains a number of publications by the John Birch Society, as well as ones pertaining to Gerald L. K. Smith.
    The finding aid reflects the original arrangement of the materials. In many cases, these were grouped according to their place of origin. In other cases, they were organized according to title, author, or subject. The incremental materials at the end of the collection did not form part of the original collection.
