Comprised of approximately 5,000 serials, 6,000 books and pamphlets, 80,000 pieces of ephemera, and 75 linear feet of manuscript material, the Collection documents the views and activities of some 7,000 left-and right-wing organizations such as the Communist part of the U.S., the John Birch Society, Students for a Democratic Society, Christian Anti-Communist Crusade, and the Young Americans for Freedom. While serving the University community, the Kansas Collection is also open to the public.
