Name: Southern Illinois Citizens for Peace
Historical Note: Affiliated with the national â€œTurn Toward Peaceâ€ organization, the Southern Illinois Citizens for Peace organization was formed in January 1962. The initial group was composed of about 22 members. Although membership was open to any interested persons, all the first members were associated in some way with Southern Illinois University. The archives collection was acquired from Mrs. Laura Wieman, who was secretary of the organization.
