- SHAD Alliance. Records, 1978 1983
1 linear ft.
The SHAD Alliance papers consist of printed materials: minutes of committee meetings, leaflets, pamphlets, press releases, serial publications, newspaper clippings, flyers, and reference material from other antinuclear groups. There is very little correspondence. Includes 58 photographs. Individuals most active include: Jacob Aftel, Bruce Birnberg, John Breitbart, Ken Gale, Barbara Kropf, Barbara Padjack, Esther Pank, and Sharon Persinger. Organized in 1978, the SHAD Alliance (Sound-Hudson Against Atomic Development) was a coalition of more than 20 groups in southern New York State concerned about nuclear proliferation and the possibility of nuclear accidents. Nonviolence and safe energy alternatives were promoted. The New York City chapter (N.Y.C. SHAD) was the largest and most active affiliate. Three serials were published: Fallout Forum, N.Y.C. SHAD Newsletter, and New Rising Sun. Activity seemed to peak around 1979-1980, then decreased sharply. The SHAD Education Task Force committee attempted to carry on SHAD's work; it changed its name to Last Chance in 1981. SHAD's central office was closed in 1982. Reference files include material from these organizations: Con Ed Rate Withholding Coalition, Manhattan Project, various groups protesting the Indian Point, Seabrook, and Shoreham nuclear reactors, and WESTPAC, the Westchester Peoples Action Coalition.
