Abbot Howard Hoffman ("Abbie") was born November 30, 1936 in  Worcester, Massachusetts. He studied psychology with  Abraham Maslow at  Brandeis University, where he graduated in 1959 with a B.A. He then completed a year of graduate work at the  University of California at Berkeley. His growing participation in the various counter-culture movements led to his arrest and subsequent trial as a member of the Chicago 7 following the 1968 riots at the Democratic National Convention. He co-founded the Yippie movement and was a vocal activist for civil rights, ending the Vietnam War, and other social movements. Following his arrest for selling cocaine in 1973, he jumped bail and spent the next seven years as a fugitive, sometimes traveling abroad while continuing to write and protest before reemerging in 1980. After serving a brief jail term, Abbie continued to write both articles and books, work with community groups in organizing local protests, and visit campuses to speak with students about taking civil and political action until his death in April of 1989.

Abbie Hoffman authored numerous articles and books. His works include: Revolution for the Hell of It, 1968,  Woodstock Nation, 1969,  Steal This Book, 1971,  Vote (co-authored with  Jerry Rubin and  Ed Sanders), 1972,  To America with Love (co-written with  Anita Hoffman), 1976,  Soon to be a Major Motion Picture, 1980,  Square Dancing in the Ice Age, 1982,  Steal this Urine Test (co-authored with  Jonathon Silvers), 1987,  Preserving Disorder: The Faking of the President (co-written with  Jonathon Silvers), 1988, and  The Best of Abbie Hoffman (co-edited with  Daniel Simon), 1989.

Jack Hoffman was born September 13, 1939 in  Worcester, Massachusetts. Following two years of service with the U.S. Army Medical Corps, Jack took over the family business,  Worcester Medical Supply Co., from his father. Jack participated in various demonstrations and campaigned actively for the election of  Eugene McCarthy in 1968 and  Shirley Chisholm in 1972.

Anita Hoffman, who became Abbie's second wife on June 8, 1967, accompanied Abbie during many of his protests and demonstrations but was left behind to care for their son, america, when Abbie jumped bail in 1974. In 1976 she published a series of letters they exchanged to keep in touch entitled "To America with Love."

Rose Shanberg, Abbie and Jack's maternal aunt, left a diary describing her struggles as a young college student and the effect of her brother Abraham's untimely death.

Scope and Content

The correspondence consists mainly of letters either from or to Abbie, Jack, or Florence, their mother. Also included are numerous sympathy cards to the Hoffman family following Abbie's death. While the family papers contain items of the family's private side, it also includes evidence of their participation in political campaigns and research for books and articles. The collection of written work focuses on Abbie's work and his life. The bulk of the collection consists of copies of government records, newspaper stories, and magazine articles. Both the New York City Police Department and the  Federal Bureau of Investigation maintained extensive records of  Abbie Hoffman's activities. In addition to numerous news articles about Abbie, there is substantial coverage of the 1988 presidential elections. Artifacts include awards, political pins and posters, and clothing Abbie often wore for speeches, demonstrations, or on his book covers. Audio/visual material include two cassettes with friends and supporters reading Abbie Hoffman's work, a reel of Abbie Hoffman's interview with  Connie Chung, and various 16mm films of Hoffman family vacations and events. Most of the photographs are family photographs taken from scrapbooks.
