Papers of John Erb, 1962-1976.

The collection consists chiefly of copies of Erb's letters to newspaper editors, media and political figures and fellow Libertarians. He discusses his 1972 conversion to Libertarianism and his concern with the overriding power of big government, especially in taxes, Viet Nam involvement, gun control, and public education; and with local government problems and civic issues around Schenectady, N.Y., such as proposed Interstate 88. Some letters bear on the internal workings and campaigns of the Libertarian Party. The collection contains a variety of printed material, chiefly party newsletters, campaign literature for Libertarians, particularly the 1974 gubernatorial (N.Y.) campaign of Jerome Tuccille and the 1974 Congressional campaign of Sanford Cohen, and a file of Erb's letters to the Schenectady Gazette on political and civic issues. Correspondents include Jacques Barzun, John Royston Coleman, Milton Friedman and Libertarian Party presidential candidate Roger MacBride. There are also routine or form letters from his Congressman Carleton James King and 1 or 2 each from James Lane Buckley, William Frank Buckley, Daniel Evan Button, David Brinkley, Charles Ellsworth Goodell, Ernest Gruening, Mike Gravel, Jesse Helms, Jacob Koppel Javits, Robert Francis Kennedy, Eugene Joseph McCarthy, Paul M. McCloskey, George Stanley McGovern, Wayne Lyman Morse, Edmund Sixtus Muskie, David Lawrence, William Proxmire, John Davison Rockefeller, and John F. Seiberling.
