||Marvin Gettleman Papers
||Marvin Gettleman (1933-2017) was an emeritus professor of history at the Polytechnic
Institute of New York University. The collection reflects Gettleman's work with the
New York Faculty Committee for Non-Intervention in Central America and the Caribbean
and also contains audio materials collected by Gettleman on a range of topics related
to the left.
The New York Faculty Committee for Non-Intervention in Central America and the Caribbean
fought for human rights in Central America in the 1980s, with a focus on conditions
in El Salvador and Guatemala. The group organized visits to the region and advocated
for changes in United States foreign policy. The files contain reports, notes, newspaper
and magazine clippings, correspondence, petitions, and research materials.
Audio materials in the collection contain recordings of interviews, debates, and lectures.
Four interviews document the experiences of those effected by the Rapp-Coudert Committee
of the early 1940s. Recordings of debates and lectures document the study of movements
on the left in North America, Latin America, and Europe from 1976-2000.
