The American Friends of Irish Neutrality (AFIN) was formed in New York City in 1940 in order to support the preservation of Irish neutrality during World War II. The records contain telegrams, minutes, news clippings, correspondence, membership and donation cards, postcards, texts of speeches, press releases, pamphlets, and photographs. Among the correspondents are Bennett Champ Clark, Martin Conboy, Éamon de Valera, Sean Keating, Henry Cabot Lodge, Breckinridge Long, Joseph Cardinal MacRory, Robert F. Mahoney, Caroline O’Day, Charles Poletti, Patrick Walsh, and Paul O’Dwyer.
These records document Paul O’Dwyer’s efforts to solicit funds on behalf of the Bernadette Devlin Defense Fund. Bernadette Devlin [McAliskey], born in 1947, was an activist in Northern Ireland. The records include news clippings, correspondence, financial records, and publications.
