Phyllis J. Hudson Collection


Phyllis J. Hudson Collection


These materials were accumulated by Phyllis J. Hudson when she was active in issues concerning women and labor. In correspondence, bibliographies, leaflets, newsletters and memorabilia, this collection documents women's concerns in employment, the Equal Rights Amendment, education, reproduction, domestic violence and women's rights. Similar materials show how organizations worked to overcome social problems, such as, homelessness and an inadequate mass transit system. Most of the labor materials concern librarians, but one folder of newsletters and correspondence documents industrial action by the United Farm Workers.
