Descriptive Summary

 
Creator: Goldstein, Edward Samuel.
Title: Edward S. Goldstein: Jewish Labor Committee Research Files
Dates [inclusive]: 1933-1985
Abstract: Edward Samuel Goldstein (1944- ) taught U.S. history in the Boston area and later went on to a career in the telecommunications industry. In the mid-1970s he began research toward a dissertation at Brandeis University on the history of the Jewish Labor Committee (U.S.). He secured the cooperation of the Jewish Labor Committee and its then-executive director, Emanuel Muravchik, and was given access to the organization's files. The dissertation was never finished, but Goldstein completed a considerable amount of research, and composed several draft chapters. This collection is comprised of notes, drafts, original documents, correspondence, photocopies accumulated by Goldstein in the course of his work on this project, as well as other material dealing with his interests in twentieth-century American Jewish history. NOTE: This collection is housed offsite and advance notice is required for use.
