Historical/Biographical Note

The American Committe for Cultural Freedom (ACCF) was formed in 1951 as a result of the dissolution and reorganization of the Committee for Cultural Freedom (which was active from 1939-1951). The American Committee on Cultural Freedom was the U.S. affiliate of the international anti-communist organization the Congress for Cultural Freedom. Membership in the ACCF included prominent artists and intellectuals across a broad political spectrum. The activities and programs of the committee were generally informed by the staunch anti-communist orientation associated with the height of the Cold War period. As Cold War tensions diffused during the mid-1950's, the organization first disaffiliated with the international Congress for Cultural Freedom and later folded in 1957. At the height of its activities, scores of artists and intellectuals were involved with the ACCF either as invited members, as participants in its numerous campaigns and programs, or as correspondents. In leadership roles and among the most significant correspondents were Daniel Bell, James T. Farrell, Sidney Hook, Irving Kristol, and Diana Trilling. Less actively involved but well represented by letters are Robert Oppenheimer, David Reisman, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., and Norman Thomas. Negative responses to membership invitations include Hannah Arendt and James Conant.

Administrative Information

Custodial History

The American Committee for Cultural Freedom (ACCF) was dissolved in 1957, and at that time the organziation's papers were stored with Norman Thomas, educational director for the Tamiment Institute. The papers were transferred to NYU in 1963 along with the rest of the Tamiment Institute Library's manuscript collections. Beginning in 1968 the permission of either Daniel Bell or Sidney Hook was required for researchers seeking access to the collection. Following the 1975 publication of John P. Diggins' Up From Communism: Conservative Odysseys in American Intellectual History, which quoted from the collection, Daniel Bell and Arnold Beichman requested that the collection be closed to researchers. The reason given was that the collection contained not only organizational records, but also papers of a purely personal nature which needed to be examined by the donors to prevent embarrassment to living individuals. The closure of the collection was met with displeasure by a number of historians. After extensive correspondence with Daniel Bell, Ronald Radosh initiated a petition to the Committee on the Professions of the American Historical Association requesting an investigation into the closure of the collection. Following the petition, Tamiment processed the collection and Daniel Bell selected a small number of folders which were restricted until the early 2000s. The remainder of the collection was opened to researchers in 1980.

The accession number 1968.001 is associated with this collection.

Series III: American Committee for Cultural Freedom, 1949-1957

Scope and Content Note

The records of the American Committee for Cultural Freedom include extensive files of minutes, correspondence, corporate and financial records. Documentation of public activities is similarly extensive. These include ACCF generated arts festivals, forums and petition campaigns; advocacy interventions in visa cases, deportations and loyalty-security hearings; the often unsuccessful courting of foundation grants for a wide range of activities; and numerous instances in which the Committee took on the role of warning intellectuals engaged in non-ACCF programs in defense of cultural freedom that they were allying themselves with politically tainted persons. Other instances of disparate responses among the intellectual community to Cold War issues are documented in such files as those dealing with the Committee's relationship with Arthur Miller, Bertrand Russell, and Jean Paul Sartre. The final subseries includes a small number of files that were previously restricted on the request of donor Daniel Bell.
