East Carolina LibGuide – Annoucing the Cold War & Internal Security Collection

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on April 29, 2013

David Durant, East Carolina University: “J.Y. Joyner Library, East Carolina University, is pleased to announce the creation of the Cold War and Internal Security (CWIS) Collection. The CWIS Collection is a print archive containing over 1,000 congressional hearings, reports and committee prints, published between 1934-1976, dealing with congressional investigations of organizations deemed “subversive” or “un-American”. For more about the CWIS Collection, please visit our LibGuide. We have also created a CWIS Blog, in order to highlight interesting and important documents from the collection, as well as key topics and the broader historical context for these materials. The first post features baseball star Jackie Robinson’s July 1949 testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee. The CWIS Collection is part of the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries’ Collaborative Federal Depository Program.”
