Correspondence 1967-1999 [series]

Correspondence (3.5 lin. ft.) is arranged into two subseries, first by date, and second by subject/correspondent. Sinclair's files contain not only incoming letters, but also copies of her replies. Correspondents include other citizen activists such as Christa-Maria, Kay Drey, Gerald and Martha Drake, Billie Garde, and Helen LeTarte. Researchers seeking information about these individuals should consult files in the "People File" series as well.

Nearly one box of this material is related to Sinclair's 1992-1994 correspondence with Fawn Shillinglaw, an anti-nuclear activist who resided in Appleton, Wisconsin and shared her research on dry cask storage of nuclear waste with Sinclair. This material supported the Kelley v. Selin lawsuit. Other files document correspondence with politicians and industry officials.
