Art Gatti Collection

Description

The Arthur Gatti Collection contains clippings, publications, documents, correspondence, fliers, posters, photographs, scrapbooks, and memorabilia documenting Gatti’s involvement in political and social activism during his tenure as a Queens College student in the early-to-mid 1960s. Materials emanate from both Gatti’s direct experience and the activities of several major activist organizations that were instrumental in affecting the national political and social landscape of the 1960s. Furthermore, the collection also documents the political career and personal life of Mario Savio, who was a student at Queens College before attending the University of California and Berkeley, where he subsequently emerged on the national scene as the leader of the Free Speech Movement in 1964.
