Maryland State Colonization Society Papers, 1827-1894. (31 reels)
Film MISC 1213
Founded in 1817 as an auxiliary of the Washington-based American Colonization Society, the Maryland State Colonization Society's primary functions were to gather funds for the parent society and to recruit colonists for the American Society's settlement, Liberia, founded on the West African coast in 1822. Ten years later, the Maryland Society decided to chart a course independent of the American Society by founding a separate colony for Maryland's free blacks, called "Maryland in Liberia." Conflicts between the colony and native tribes forced the union of Maryland in Liberia with the Republic of Liberia in 1857. The Maryland State Colonization Society ceased active colonization efforts in 1863 and disbanded in 1902. The papers consist of correspondence, minutes, financial records, records of manumission and emigration, reports of colonial agents, pamphlets and books on the colonization movement, copies of the Maryland Colonization Journal and the Liberia Herald, and census records of Maryland in Liberia. The materials shed light on race relations and socioeconomic conditions in antebellum America and are a source of information on the founding of Liberia.

These office files, which constitute the heart of the administrative record of the Kennedy White House, should provide researchers with valuable insights into the tone and mission of that brief administration. From Richard Neustadt's pre-election concern (expressed as early as September 15, 1960) about the expectations the public had since Roosevelt's time about the "first hundred days" to the administration's belated battle for civil rights legislation, the sense of conflict between idealism and reality becomes unmistakable.

Sankt-Peterburgskiia Vedomosti is a valuable source for the study of Russia's eighteenth century. Under the editorship of such men as Mikhail Lomonosov and Gerhardt-Friedrich Muller, the paper's coverage was diverse, ranging from domestic and foreign affairs, science, art, industry, and other fields. During the period of Alexander II's Great Reforms, the daily was leased to an editor of pronounced liberal views, Evgenii Korshe, and it became one of the more prominent fora for progressive thought in the empire. Although its importance declined when Sankt-Peterburgskiia Vedomosti reverted to government control, during its last two decades, when it was edited by the Orientalist Prince Esper Ukhtomskii, it gave extensive coverage to Russian involvement in Asia.

The Women's Labour League was founded in 1906 as a broadly based feminist group with representation from the Labour Party, trade unions, and socialist and cooperative societies.

In 1918, the Women's Labour League disappeared as a separate organization and became an integral part of the Labour Party, as the Labour Party's Women's Organisation. It continued under this name until 1977, when separate proceedings for the Women's Organisation were taken over by the Labour Party. [LC]
