Historical Background
SANE, Inc. was established in 1957 as National Committee for a Sane Nuclear Policy to combat above ground testing of atomicnuclear weapons. In the 1960s SANE was a leading organization opposed to U.S. intervention in IndoChina. In 1987 SANE merged with Nuclear Weapons Freeze Campaign to become SANE/FREEZE. It continues as the organization, Peace Action.

Arrangement of Series K

Series K contains materials relating to the campaign against the MX missile (ca. 1978-1985) by SANE and other organizations. Included are the MX files of SANE staff members David Cortright, Mike Mawby, and Marilyn McNabb. Records of the National Campaign to Stop the MX (1981-1984) and a few information packets from the Coalition to Stop the MX (1984-1985) are also in this series.

When processing began, it was thought that the files of the National Campaign to Stop the MX would be in a separate series, or even in a separate document group. This proved to be difficult because the files were inter-mixed when they arrived in the Peace Collection and because it appeared that, after 1981, many files were shared by both SANE and the National Campaign. In addition, Mike Mawby was on the staff of both organizations.

An initial processing plan of keeping each accession separate also proved to be impractical. There has been some consolidation of accessions in order to bring similar materials together and to reduce duplication. Accession numbers are noted on the folders.

The basic arrangement of Series K is by provenance and chronological. The files of SANE and of the National Campaign to Stop the MX have been kept separate as much as possible, and the files of each staff member involved in MX work have been kept together. Boxes 1-17 contain the files of SANE and of SANE staff members David Cortright, Mike Mawby, and Marilyn McNabb. These boxes cover the period 1978-1983. Boxes 18-32 contain files of the National Campaign to Stop the MX and of National Campaign staff members Chad Dobson, April Moore, and Mike Mawby. The National Campaign to Stop the MX was active from early 1981 to mid-1984. However, many of the files contain material dating from before or after this three-year period. Files on other organizations, reference material (including government publications), and newspaper clippings are at the end of Series K.

Although the overall arrangement is chronological, there are some sections that seemed to fall naturally into alphabetical order (e.g., several sections of Subject Files and the files on Organizations in Boxes 34-36).


An alphabetical list of subjects in SANE's MX files (as of ca. 1979-1981) was found in David Cortright's files (see folder 1 of Box 7). Although it was not possible to re-assemble this file, many of the subjects listed appear as folder headings in Boxes 8, 15-16, and 20-26.

Within the folders, many have been left in the order in which they were found (usually in rough reverse chronological order). Some folders have been processed more thoroughly and have been arranged in chronological order.
