The Abraham Lincoln Archives Collection is an ongoing project begun by the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade (VALB) in the late 1970s. These Spanish Civil War veterans recognized the importance of preserving the history of the role of North American volunteers. They formed the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives organization (ALBA) and began to collect letters, writings, oral histories, photographs, posters, artifacts, and ephemera that would preserve this history and contextualize it within the ongoing struggle for radical social change.
In fact, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover requested that President Roosevelt ensure that former ALB members fighting in U. S. Forces in World War II not be considered for commissioning as officers, or to have any type of positive distinction conferred upon them. [27] In 1947, the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade were placed on the Attorney General's List of Subversive Organizations. [28] The Veterans would be one of only five groups that would stay intact, to at least 1970, after receiving this designation.
