Topical [subseries]

The Topical subseries consists of files on cases and issues in which the Washtenaw County Branch of the ACLU was either interested or involved. These are organized alphabetically either by subject or individual case name. Of note are materials on the University of Michigan Student Code and the Ann Arbor Public Library's "behavior guidelines." There is also a file of materials on the surveillance practices of the Michigan State Police's "Red Squad," including a copy of the "subversion" file kept by the State Police on the Washtenaw County Branch during the 1960s. Researchers interested in cases listed under the Topical subseries are advised to also consult the Branch's minutes and correspondence under the Administrative subseries for additional information.
