Overview

In 1947 four hundred prominent Americans met to form a new political movement-the Americans for Democratic Action. Their aim was to establish a liberal organization dedicated to achieving worldwide freedom and economic security.

The papers of the ADA  trace the evolution of a modern political movement that supported civil rights, the United Nations,i nternational control of atomic energy, and global democracy. The 200,000 pages of ADA files contain records of campaigns on vital issues such as Vietnam, equal rights, disarmament, inflation and unemployment including correspondence with succeeding US Presidents and other major political figures.
