Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Free Speech Movement Records, 1936-1969 (bulk 1964-1965), consist of materials created or collected by the Free Speech Movement (FSM) organization. The FSM, created in the fall of 1964 to protest administrative efforts to curb political activities on the Berkeley campus, disbanded in April 1965. The collection documents the formation and dissolution of the FSM as well as its daily operation through leaflets, notebooks, letters, logs, petitions, and orders for phonograph records, buttons, and bumper stickers. The correspondence files include an extensive group of letters written to the FSM spokesperson, Mario Savio, by supporters and detractors during the movement.
