The series includes records of Ralph Schoenman’s trip to North Vietnam, undertaken from February-March of 1966, in which Schoenman gathered evidence of American war crimes in support of U.S. draft resister David Mitchell, whose case the Foundation supported. Schoenman’s trip inspired the Foundation’s later and more ambitious plan of inquiry into U.S. war crimes in Vietnam, which would culminate in the first Russell International War Crimes Tribunal.

Files have been arranged in rough chronological order. The processing archivist has maintained the received order of some sub-sets of files, particularly those which have been alphabetized according to last name.

Series 6
BRPF Correspondence Relating to Fundraising. – 1962-1971. – 12.7 cm of textual records

Series consists of typescript copies of letters from Foundation employees to various individuals approached to sponsor the Foundation’s work. The series also includes typescript copies of letters from Russell which acknowledge financial gifts to the Foundation. Additionally, some address lists and bills to the Foundation are included. The majority of files with letters to and from donors have been labelled “Angels”, possibly because without the financial support of these individuals, the Foundation would have been too short of funds to continue its work. 

All “Angels” files originally resided in an accordion folder and have been maintained in their received order—that is, arranged alphabetically by last name of letter recipient. Additional files have been arranged chronologically by the processing archivist. The Foundation’s original file titles have been highlighted in bold; the processing archivist’s additions are beneath in square brackets.

Related records may be found in series 316 of RA2.

BRPF Activism on Behalf of Norodom Sihanouk and Related Literature. – 1970-1976. – ca. 51 cm of textual records and 49 photographs : b&w

Throughout the first half of the 1970s, the Foundation took up the cause of deposed Cambodian Head of State Norodom Sihanouk, the resistance movement he founded (National United Front of Kampuchea, often abbreviated FUNK) and his government-in-exile (the Royal Government of the National Union of Kampuchea, often abbreviated GRUNK). During this period Sihanouk resided primarily in Beijing. The Foundation’s efforts on behalf of Sihanouk were numerous: in 1971 they organized a “May Day Appeal” for which advertisements were taken out in various newspapers and letters were sent to heads of state throughout the world. This year, a form letter campaign was also undertaken in which Foundation supporters were queried regarding their interest in a “world appeal” to support Sihanouk. As well, in 1973, the Foundation established the “Bertrand Russell International Committee on Cambodia,” whose aim was to raise support for GRUNK and Sihanouk.

Documentary forms include correspondence, form letters, signed appeals from Foundation supporters, transcripts of an interview with Sihanouk (1971), press cuttings, and grey literature from GRUNK and FUNK.
