Archival Material:

Seventeen interviews by the PSC Archive Committee of leaders and activists in the PSC's history are available at the NYU Tamiment library. They are accessible online. Go to the Digital Tamiment, do a search for the "Professional Staff Congress" and you will have access to the interviews. Most of these interviews plus much more PSC historical material is available at the CUNY Digital History Archive. A search for "Professional Staff Congress" or "PSC" will yield rich results.

Below are images of five poster boards created to mark the PSC's 40th anniversary in 2012. You can take a closer look at the poster boards with an enlarged view by downloading them as PDFs. (There are also two YouTube videos available exploring PSC history: 1. Irwin Yellowitz on the first 25 years of the PSC; and 2. Steve London on PSC history from the mid 1990s).
