Helen Courtois papers
Helen Courtois was the secretary and founder of the Keep America Committee (K.A.C.), an anti-communist organization based in Los Angeles which was active in the 1950s. The Committee acted as a reprint service, reproducing and disseminating articles from far-right publications. Courtois was also involved in Mankind United, a religious cult active during the World War II era. This collection of her papers reflects her participation in these organizations, as well as a collection of newspapers, newsletters, and other sociopolitical pamphlets and documents. The collection also contains correspondence to Courtois from several of these organizations.
