Since 1980, the Emma Goldman Papers Project, at the University of California, Berkeley has collected, organized, and edited tens of thousands of documents by and about Goldman from around the world. The Emma Goldman Papers: A Microfilm Edition (Chadwyck-Healey Inc., 1991) and Emma Goldman: A Guide to Her Life and Documentary Sources (Chadwyck-Healey Inc., 1995) are housed in libraries across the country and internationally. Most of the material is new to the scholarly community and provides a window not only into Goldman but also into social and cultural movements in late nineteenth- and early twentieth- century America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. The Guide also includes unique documentation of government and press reactions to radicalism. Other publications include The Life and Times of Emma Goldman (ISBN 0-9635443-0-6), a 127-page high school curriculum guide highlighting twenty-four primary source historical documents. Since 1990, the Project has toured an exhibition of thirty-eight reproductions of historical photographs, personal letters, government documents and other memorabilia.
