The American Newspaper Guild was established as a loose national federation of editorial workers organizations across the country. The objective was to be a professional organization upholding standards of good journalism that also secured the economic goals of its members. Their records reflect the relationships between the national organization and local guilds, as well as the guilds dealings with newspapers, including collective bargaining and strikes. Also included are records from the international organization, particularly pertaining to organizing in Latin America and subsequent CIA involvement. Scrapbooks contain Heywood Broun Award entries.
