Short Description of Collection

The papers of Mildred Grossman cover her active and dedicated life. Mildred was an award-winning photographer, civil rights activist, unionist, and world traveler, and this collection reflects that. Included within the collection are photographs, both professional and personal, correspondence between friends and clients, diaries, daybooks, financial, medical, and legal documents, and extensive paperwork regarding her involvement in the lawsuit that reinstated the 33 teachers who had been fired by the state of New York due to suspected involvement in the Communist Party during the McCarthy era in the United States. Also included are legal papers and pamphlets written by her brother-in-law, Rafael Federman, an active member of the Jewish Labor Bund from the city of Czestochowa in Poland, and paperwork on a pension that her husband, Mark Berkowitz, a Holocaust survivor, was receiving from Germany.
