Abstract

The Free Speech Movement (FSM) of Berkeley, California was a series of large and student-led protests on the UC Berkeley campus during late 1964 and early 1965. At issue were the students’ rights to engage in on-campus political activities, and for the University to recognize more general rights to free speech and academic freedom. The collection is arranged in three categories of materials in a total of 40 folders: (1) Serials; (2) Records, Tapes, and Photographs; and (3) Reports, Letters, Bulletins etc.
