||1915-1942 (bulk 1918-1920; 1935-1939)
||This collection documents the views, aims, and internal workings of the American Defense
Society, an early twentieth-century nationalist organization, based in New York City.
The material dates from 1915 to 1942, and concerns many of the political, ideological,
religious, and social debates and events of the time period. Nearly half of the American
Defense Society Records consists of correspondence, including incoming and copies
of outgoing letters, as well as internal communications among board members, officers,
and members. In addition, the collection contains much printed material, some of which
were published by the society. Also included is material that documents the society's
internal organization, and newspaper clippings collected by ADS.
