  • Papers of a social activist. Of the two and one half boxes of general subject files, a large portion deals with Nemenyi's work for the Council of Federated Organizations in Laurel, Mississippi; his interest in securing educational and employment opportunities for young blacks; and his subsequent political disagreements with college administrators at the University of North Carolina and at Virginia State College. Later files cover a wide range of liberal and radical topics. Personal correspondence and papers document his views on many of the above topics as well as his blood relationship to Bobby Fischer. Photographs include images in and around Laurel, Mississippi, 1968.


  • Presented by Peter Nemenyi, Madison, Wisconsin, 1975, 1979.
