Historical Note

In 1967 the State University of New York at Buffalo developed a plan for the establishment of a series of colleges with special interests. The Social Sciences College, which had as its purpose bringing people together to study radical social theory, was one of those colleges. George W. Robbins is listed in the university directories for 1973-1977 as an instructor in the Social Sciences College. In the course catalogs for the period he is listed as the instructor for a course entitled Monopolies and U.S. Politics. During this time an organization known as the Anti-Monopoly Committee emerged. George W. Robbins was the author of the publications of the committee available in this collection. For an undetermined period of time, the committee used Norton Union for a mailing address. The committee is not included of the list of recognized student groups in the student organization directories in the 1970s.

An informational sheet included with the partial collection of leaflets indicates that 403,000 copies of 102 leaflets, issued in 1974 and 1975, were distributed in the community. This same informational sheet states that the Anti-Monopoly Committee was formed because “it is necessary to organize an Anti-Monopoly Party and remove the monopolists from economic, educational, and political power.”
