Typewriter ribbon and box for Corona typewriter used by a US clergyman for an anti-Nazi sermon

Object | Accession Number: 2015.33.3 a-c

Ribbon and box accompanying typewriter used by Reverend M.E.N. Lindsay to compose the sermon that he delivered on November 21, 1937, as part of his protest of the planned camp of the German-American Bund in Southbury, Connecticut. The Bund, an American Nazi organization, had purchased land in this town eighty miles north of New York City. They planned to set up a training camp to indoctrinate Nazi values in young people. Lindsay and another pastor, Rev. Felix Manley, rallied the residents to protest the project and the town prevented the camp from being built there.
