Scope and Content Note

Series I: Edward Goldstein: Writings and Notes, c.1967-1980, includes drafts of several chapters of Goldstein's dissertation-in-progress on the history of the Jewish Labor Committee; a Dissertation Plan, submitted to Brandeis University; a paper giving an overview of the dissertation topic, presented to the American Jewish Studies Association in 1978; and folders of notes relating to key themes, persons and events in JLC history.

Series II: Subject Files, 1933-1985, includes files of correspondence, notes, clippings, original documents and photocopies of documents relating to important aspects of JLC history, such as anti-Nazi activity, anti-Communism, aid to refugees and displaced person, work in the U.S. labor and civil rights movements, attitudes toward and work in Palestine and Israel, campaigns on behalf of Soviet Jewry, and relations with other Jewish communal organizations and labor organizations. In addition to material that clearly relates to Goldstein's research on the Jewish Labor Committee, this series also contains a few files of correspondence, clippings, periodicals and documents illustrating his broader interests in twentieth-century Jewish history, culture and politics.

Series III: Oversized Item (Photocopied Scrapbook), 1942. A photocopy of a large clippings scrapbook, compiled in the JLC office, covering the year 1942. Included are clippings from the English and Yiddish press pertaining to JLC activities and issues of interest to the Committee. This scrapbook is one of a series, the rest of which can be found in the Records of the Jewish Labor Committee (Wagner 25).
