Notes:
Coughlin was a controversial Catholic priest, based in Royal Oak, Michigan, who broadcast a weekly radio show from 1926-1940, in which he lambasted immigrants, bankers, Communists, Jews, and other groups. He also published a weekly paper called "Social Justice", starting in 1936. He was eventually forced off the airwaves and spent the rest of his life presiding over his parish in Michigan, though he continued to publish.
Summary:
The collection contains 136 books, booklets, published sermons, published lectures, pamphlets, and other printed materials. Of these, 57 were written by Coughlin. The rest relate to him directly or have chapters or passages relating to him. Additionally, there are periodicals, including newspaper and magazine articles, and a full set of Coughlin's weekly publication, "Social Justice", 1936-1942; other periodicals such as William Dudley Pelley's weekly "Liberation Journal", 1938-1948; a few copies of Henry Ford's "Dearborn Independent"; original photographs, including images of Coughlin and of his church; letters; copies of the FBI's files on Coughlin; and (non-original) recordings of his broadcasts.
