Scope and Contents

The Papers of Emil Rinderspacher chronicle his political activism as an opponent of U.S. policy in Vietnam during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Included are notes, meeting schedules with lawmakers, and other documents pertaining to a June 1970 effort to lobby members of Congress (Citizens' Lobby to End the War) newspaper clippings about protests on the University of Iowa campus in late 1967 and posters and other ephemera pertaining to the Vietnam Moratorium in 1969. The two objects in Box 2 are molded plastic human heads created by students in the UI School of Art and Art History in spring 1970, among hundreds of similar objects displayed on the Pentacrest lawn as part of a protest event. Each head was accompanied by a small banner reading End the War.
