Bringing it all together

Crow, Ruth (1993) Bringing it all together. unpublished. (Unpublished)


In 1936 Maurie Crow was one of the Melbourne University students who organised a demonstration against war and fascism calling themselves "Veterans of Future Wars". The main opposition to the University Peace Group came from the Campion Society which was lead by B.A. Santamaria. Maurie became very interested in studying why Roman Catholics like Sanatamaria were such ardent supporters of fascism. Thus in the pamphlet section of Crow Collection at the Footscray Campus of the Victoria University of Technology there are quite a few Papal Encyclicals from the mid 1920's as well as peace movement pamphlets.
