Summary, etc.: This undated letter was sent to ICLU members as a special appeal for financial support, because they were $5,000 short of the 1967 goal of $30,000. Martin Larner, Treasurer, and Robert Risk, President, enclosed a brochure giving "a birdseye view of ICLU activities." The letter states: "ICLU is preparing to go to court to open the World War Memorial on a non-discriminatory basis."

Biographical or Historical Data: The Indiana Civil Liberties Union (ICLU) was founded in 1953 and met at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, having been denied the use of the Indiana War Memorial auditorium.

The organization fought numerous court battles to protect the rights of Hoosier citizens since its founding and was renamed the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana on January 1, 2006.
