Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of 100 issues of Pacifica Views, a four-page newsletter published at Conscientious Objector (CO) Camp Number 76 in Glendora, California. A group of men, referring to themselves as "Pacifica Associates of Glendora" started the "independent weekly pacifist publication" during World War II. This collection begins with Volume 1, Number 8, issued on July 30, 1943, and ends with Volume 3, Number 43, issued on March 29, 1946. Also included is a small amount of correspondence, fundraising appeals, news sheets titled "Strike News," and a flyer. The collection illustrates the activities and perspectives of conscientious objectors, who were persecuted for their pacifist stance during wartime and forced into work camps.
