Call no.: MS 301

In the summer of 1967, members of University of Massachusetts Amherst campus groups, such as the Faculty Group on War and Peace and the Students for Political Action, joined with individuals from other area colleges and from the community at large to form the Valley Peace Center of Amherst for the purposes of opposing the Vietnam War, providing draft counseling, eliciting pledges from the government to avoid first use of nuclear and biological weapons, and reduction of the power of the “military-industrial complex”. The Center was active for more than five and a half years, drawing its financial support largely from the community and its human resources from student and community volunteers.

Correspondence, minutes, volunteer and membership lists, financial records, newsletters, questionnaires, notes, petitions, clippings, posters, circulars, pamphlets, periodicals, other printed matter, and memorabilia. Includes material relating to alternative service, boycotts, war tax resistance, prison reform, environmental quality, and political candidates.

Historical Note

A community organization staffed largely by volunteer workers and financed by memberships and contributions, the Valley Peace Center was established in October 1967 to oppose the Vietnam War, to counsel young men of draft age, and to support programs directed at related social and political problems. The Center rented space in Amherst, Massachusetts to house its draft counseling program, its library and its literature distribution services, and for planning and carrying out its other programs. The Center was succeeded by the New Valley Peace Center in April 1973.

Historically a center of dissent, the academic community’s skepticism toward the Vietnam War was reinforced during this era by military draft laws and regulations that provided deferments for college and graduate students so long as they were pursuing their studies. This provision constrained many draft-age young men to college campuses and served to increase their uneasiness. As the decade of the 1960′s progressed, opposition to the War and the draft grew, first on and then off the college campuses; spokespersons emerged; organizations were formed; and activities through which opposition to the war could be expressed were developed. In this milieu, in the summer of 1967, members of campus groups at the University of Massachusetts such as the Faculty Group on War and Peace and the Students for Political Action, together with individuals from other area colleges and from the community at large – representing primarily religiously oriented groups – joined forces to form the Valley Peace Center of Amherst.

According to its October 1967 brochure, the Center was conceived of as an “umbrella organization serving as a resource to all those concerned with current international tensions and domestic conditions associated with a state oriented to war.” The founders of the Center defined six central aims: U.S. disengagement from the Vietnam War; reversal of the neglect of the human needs of deprived and minority groups in America; change of the draft law to better accommodate objection to the Vietnam War; elicitation of pledges from the government to avoid first use of nuclear and biological weapons; reduction of the power of the “military-industrial complex”; and strengthening of the United Nations. The first aim predominated and served as the unifying position of the Center over its existence.

The Center was active for more than five and a half years, drawing its financial support largely from the community and the bulk of its work force from student and community volunteers. Most of its resources were devoted to draft counseling and the support of that activity, to its library and its literature distribution programs, and to the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations of the late 1960′s and early 1970′s, especially the weekly Amherst Common Peace Vigil and the demonstrations at the Westover Air Force Base in Chicopee.

As the United States wound down its activities in Vietnam, changed the military draft law, reduced draft calls and eventually discontinued the draft altogether, the role and future of the Center came into question, and a series of conflicts erupted among its participants, especially between some of those long associated with it and a group of energetic newcomers. The quarrel came to a head in the spring of 1973 when, following a change in the voting membership of the Center’s executive board, the views of the newcomers prevailed and the old-timers withdrew. The disruption caused so extensive a reorganization of the Center that it was viewed as discontinued. The succeeding organization renamed itself the New Valley Peace Center.

Series Descriptions

Includes the Valley Peace Center Newsletter and the Valley Peace Center News Notes (subseries 1/00). The minutes of the Center begin with the surviving records of the Hampshire County Peace Action Committee, an ad hoc group which created the Center, followed by the minutes of its own Executive Board with certain other communications sent to members, surviving non-programmatic correspondence (correspondence relating to the Center’s several programs is placed with other materials relating to respective programs), volunteer and membership lists and responses to mailings, all making up subseries 1/1. The financial records (subseries 1/2) of the Center comprise all surviving bills, cancelled checks, stubs and correspondence relating to its expenditures; no journal or other running record besides the check stubs seems to have survived. The Center’s personnel did a great deal of clipping of current newspapers and leaves in magazines, both local and national; those clippings that originated in the local press or dealt with events taking place in this region are filed with the programs to which they related in series 23 or chronologically, except that the Westover Air Force Base demonstrations have their own folders in subseries 1/3. Materials relating to the activities of one of the Center’s precursor groups, the Faculty Group on War and Peace, together with miscellaneous material from three individuals prominent at one time or another in the activities of the Center make up the fourth subseries of Organizational Papers.

Arrangement:

Arranged by activity. Within each subseries, materials are arranged under either the name of the program or the name of the organization spawned by or cooperating with the Center.

Scope and content:

Includes materials used to organize and initiate services that the Center set out to provide. Subseries 2/1 is a general file of these programs and organizations. Materials relating to the assistance of candidates for public office, draft counseling, to the work involved in placing potential draftees in alternative service program, and to the provision of the library and literature distribution programs are set out in subseries 2/2 through 2/5, respectively.

The Center operated its literature distribution and library program with several aims. It distributed literature and loaned books and pamphlets furthering its views on the Vietnam War, on war in general, and on other social problems in which it was interested. It informed potential draftees of their options, and kept draft counselors informed on the current state of the military draft laws and regulations and on court cases involving the draft. Much of the material was in the form of flyers and circulars, and periodicals produced by national organizations of long standing with well-known spheres of activity and expertise. These materials are arranged in subseries 3/1, under the name of the issuing agency, or, in the case of periodicals, by title. Some circulars and the like from miscellaneous sources are in topical groups in subseries 3/2. Clippings and extracts from the national media on the Vietnam war and other international and domestic issues in which the Center’s participants were interested, are arranged by subject, and make up subseries 3/3.

Format considerations dictated the arrangement of most pamphlets and of books into subseries 3/4 and 3/5, respectively. Most pamphlets and all books are filed alphabetically by the name of the author, or, when none was shown, by title. Some smaller pamphlets showing no author are filed in subseries 3/1 under the name of the issuing agency.

Lists of book and pamphlet titles in this series are available in the collection.

There are many instances in which drafts of meeting minutes, carbons of outgoing correspondence, manuscript notes, etc., were made on the back of spare copies of notices of the Center’s activities. In some cases, those copies used for “scratch” purposes may represent the only copies of such notices surviving in the files.

Includes stickers, rubber stamps, and thirty-eight buttons related to the Vietnam peace movement, the McGovern candidacy, and other issues; and two rubber address stamps for the Center. Also included in this series, and stored in map case 2, drawer 5, are two posters advertising the Center’s address, phone number and its services; one poster “Strategic Air command/Peace is our Profession”; and a copy of the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights with footnotes.
