Biography/History

WE THE PEOPLE was a local Louisville area citizens' group formed in 1973 to petition the United States Congress for the impeachment of President Richard M. Nixon. The group put out a newsletter to keep supporters informed, held fund-raisers, purchased newspaper advertising space, and led a petition drive. The group purpose became moot with Nixon's resignation in August 1974.

Scope and Content

The collection of records from WE THE PEOPLE consists of newsletters, public relations materials, a newspaper ad, printed material, and signed petitions, dating from October 1973 through September 1974. The materials were donated to the University Archives and Records Center by one of the group's organizers.
