Sullivan, Patricia, 1950-. Progressive Party oral history interviews, 1975-1982.

Progressive Party oral history interviews, 1975-1982.

The collection consists of oral history interviews conducted by Patricia Sullivan from 1975-1982. Most of the subjects were southerners, black and white, who had been active in the civil rights struggles of the 1930s and 1940s; many worked in Henry Wallace's 1948 third party campaign for the presidency which built on earlier efforts in the South to challenge segregation and promote voting rights and participation. The interviews were used for her dissertation, Gideon's Southern Soldiers and later for her book-length, Days of Hope: Race and Democracy in the New Deal Era. Interviewees include John Abt, Randolph Blackwell, William Holmes Borders, James Dombrowski, Virginia Durr, Floyd Hunter, Curtis MacDougall, Claude Pepper, John Popham, Glenn Rainey, Pete Seeger, Studs Terkel, Strom Thurmond, and F. Palmer Weber. The collection also includes transcripts of portions of the interviews.
