Arrangement of Series C

Series C consists of material given to SCPC in 1971 by Donald F. Keys, a member of the SANE staff from 1958 to 1967. The material relates to the conflict within SANE, 1966-1967, shortly before Keys resigned as Executive Director in December 1967. There are three sections: Chicago SANE, National SANE, and National Conference for New Politics. The order of material within folders is the order in which it was found, except that clippings have been removed and placed in separate folders. Many of the items in this Series are also available in Series A or Series B.
