Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of paper and born-digital material accumulated by Moe Fishman during his many years as Secretary of the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade. It includes incoming correspondence from Lincoln Brigade veterans and others, among them representatives of veterans' organizations in Spain and elsewhere in Europe. Also included are clippings, pamphlets, memorabilia and photographs (many of them related to gatherings of Spanish Civil War veterans), letters written by Fishman to Howard Lederer during his service in Spain, and some family papers. Also in the collection is a small body of papers and photographs belonging to Lincoln Brigade veteran, Court Bevensee; these were entrusted to Fishman at the time of Bevensee's death. Document types include correspondence, publicity items, organizational records and reports, clippings and photocopies of clippings, popular publications and article reprints, photographs, videos, and audio recordings of interviews, events, and musical performances.


Materials are arranged in loose chronological order by document type or format.
