The Bancroft Library is the primary special collections library at the University of California, Berkeley. One of the largest and most heavily used libraries of manuscripts, rare books, and unique materials in the United States, Bancroft supports major research and instructional activities and plays a leading role in the development of the University's research collections.
The South Asians in North America Collection
The collection documents the pro-Indian independence political group, Hindustan Gadar Party, headquartered in California in the early 20th century. Included are newspapers, pamphlets, correspondence, photographs, interviews on cassette tapes with transcripts, posters, handbills, magazine articles (original and photocopies), lectures, theses, bibliographies and revolutionary poems.
The collection was originally collected by the South/Southeast Asia Library Service (SSEALS) and was transferred to The Bancroft Library in 2002.
