Community Activism [series]

The Community Activism series, 1981-2003, documents Mary Hathaway's involvement with a number of peace and social justice organizations in the Ann Arbor area and is further divided into the subseries: Coalition for Arms Control (CAC), Coalition Against War in the Gulf, Economic Conversion Task Force, Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice, Shelters, and the What is National Security Forum.

 
Coalition for Arms Control [subseries]

The Coalition for Arms Control (CAC) comprises the bulk of this series. This subseries includes Mary's meeting minutes and notes, event information and publicity, and a substantial amount of correspondence with Michigan politicians, particularly Rep. Carl Pursell. The organization changed its name to Peace and Environmental Coalition Against Nuclear Weapons (PECANW) in 1998 to reflect its broadened focus on environmental concerns; however, the majority of the files in this collection date from the period when the organization was called the Coalition for Arms Control, so that is the name used for the organization throughout the collection.

Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice 1982-2000 [subseries]

The Interfaith Council for Peace and Justice (also referred to by its previous name, Interfaith Council for Peace) subseries contains materials relating to Mary Hathaway's participation in the organization and tenure on the steering committee. These include minutes from the meetings of the steering committees, as well as correspondence about attempts to set up international linkages and the ICPJ newsletter. This organization illustrates particularly well the overlapping relationship between Mrs. Hathaway's civic and religious engagement. Though the ICPJ is a broad-based community organization, she represented her church and its Peace Task Force at the ICPJ meetings.
