The Berman papers contain significant material relating to the development of grassroots and union movements which addressed
occupational health issues in the 1970's and early 1980's. Particularly well documented is the development and activities
of the Asbestos Victims of America and the Medical Committee on Human Rights. Training manuals on occupational health issues
of several labor organizations are included. Correspondence with a wide variety of organizers, health workers and labor activists
is found throughout the files.
