Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection documents the activities of the Environmental Response organization. Material includes organizational correspondence, policy statements and activities, brochures and posters, and project information.

A small group of material in the collection unrelated to Environmental Response is a folder on the Association of Black Collegians.  This significant material deals with a sit-in at Brookings Hall in 1968, and includes a copy of the protestors’ Manifesto.

Please note that any given box may include multiple series. When requesting materials, please note the box and folder in addition to the series of interest.

Collection Historical Note

Environmental Response was formed in Spring 1970 as an outgrowth of Project Survival at Washington University during the first Earth Week.  Founded by Stuart Leiderman and three others, it was intended to be a center for environmental projects.  Prior to co-founding Environmental Response, Leiderman had received a degree in Sociology from Washington University, and returned a year later with a fellowship to the Center for the Biology of Natural Systems, headed by Barry Commoner.

Environmental Response conducted studies of such things as the Missouri River Bottoms and floodplain, plans for a second metropolitan airport, the expansion of the Innerbelt highway, and air pollution in the St. Louis area.  Other Environmental Response projects sought to both educate and benefit St. Louis are residents.  The Organic Gardening project, with King Louie’s Gardeners, provided, for a reasonable fee, garden tilling, seed planting, and tips on gardening organically.  Paths of Least Resistance was an effort to increase, and encourage use of, bicycle paths.  A $50,000 grant from the U.S. Office of Environmental Education within the Department of Health, Education and Welfare helped fund public education programs.  In particular, it supported the development of library based ecology centers, which were to serve as information resources on environmental issues.

Another Environmental Response project was the bi-weekly magazine Dirt, which covered local environmental issues.  Environmental Response was a broadly based group, with participation by Washington University students and faculty, and local interested citizens.
