Pacifist Issues 1960-2003 [series]

The Pacifist Issues series comprises materials collected and created by Bassett on a variety of pacifist issues, but primarily materials on war tax resistance and conscientious objection. The topical files include correspondence, notes, articles and newspaper clippings. The topical files are followed by a sub-series concerning legal cases, including briefs from trials of war-tax resisters. The next sub-series documents articles written by Bassett, and talks he gave, mainly on the Peace Tax Fund, to various groups around Michigan and the vicinity. A small sub-series contains interviews by and of Bassett, including one cassette tape, two VHS videotapes. There are also several photographs of Bassett and Congressman Ronald Dellums. The articles sub-series includes a draft, along with comments by readers, of "Affirm Life: Pay for Peace," a major article on the Peace Tax Fund, which was later published in Handbook on Military Taxes & Conscience. A copy of the article can be found in the series, National Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund, as part of its publications sub-series in Box 6. The Pacifist Issues series also includes issues of The DePaul Law Review and Sojourners with substantial articles on the Peace Tax Fund issue
