The Raymond R. White collection
consists of documents relating to the Stanford antiwar movement and to the wider radical
political and countercultural scene in the Palo Alto area in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
White was a member of a conservative group, the Stanford branch of the Young Americans for
Freedom (YAF), that actively opposed campus radicals during this period. Along with other
YAF members, White systematically collected materials published by and pertaining to
Stanford radicals and the demonstrations that they organized. He also collected leaflets,
pamphlets, and serial issues published by a variety of New Left organizations and
counter-cultural groups in the greater Palo Alto area. The White collection includes some
posters and a considerable number of fugitive and ephemeral materials not found in other
collections pertaining to radical political movements at Stanford and in its vicinity during
