||Marvin Gettleman Papers
||Marvin Gettleman (1933-) is 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.
