  • Scope and Contents

    This collection of miscellaneous letters, articles, pamphlets, reports, newsclippings, and photographs is part of the Brandeis University Special Collections' extensive set of material related to the trial and legacy of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti.

    The collection includes copies of letters from Sacco and Vanzetti as well as the correspondence and numerous publications of their supporters. The photographs in the collection include a few images of Sacco and Vanzetti's family members, along with their friends and supporters. In addition, among other topics, the images document the jury, ballistic evidence, and locations discussed in the Sacco-Vanzetti trial.

    Note that there exists some overlap of materials between this collection and Brandeis University's other Sacco and Vanzetti collections. Even so, this small and diverse collection, taken together with the other related collections in the Brandeis University Libraries, comprises a significant archival resource for research.
