Included in this collection are pamphlets, newspaper clippings, magazine articles and correspondence dealing with the D.A.R.
In 1928, Mrs. Helen Tufts Bailie wrote an article accusing the Daughters of the American Revolution of circulating a "blacklist"
of men and women who would not be welcome as speakers before D.A.R. members. The "blacklisted" people were accused of being
Communists, Socialists, liberals, pacifists. Among those blacklisted by the D.A.R. was David Starr Jordan, former president
of Stanford University. Many D.A.R. members and others protested the blacklist. Finally the Palo Alto chapter of the D.A.R.
resigned their membership in the national organization.
