Collection Scope and Content Note

The materials in this topical, artificial collection were gathered by Dan Sheridan in an effort to document the early influencers in this area of study. The collection is primarily organized by format rather than by provenance or creator. The collection is mostly devoted to writings about domestic violence originating in academia, through publications, and in the form of public service awareness literature. Smaller portions contain limited correspondence and educational presentations. Series 1 (1975-2002), the largest portion of the collection, combines articles with books, pamphlets, and periodicals. Many of these are among the earliest serious scholarship on the subject of domestic violence. Series 2 (1980-1996) complements the first series with dissertations and theses collected by the various donors based on their topical relevance. Correspondence in Series 3 is almost entirely that of Jacquelyn Campbell and limited to the late 1990s and early 2000s. Similarly, Jacquelyn Campbell produced nearly all of the presentations in Series 4, which are various sets of 35mm slides illustrating lectures on various aspects of domestic violence.
