Sallie Marx (1929 -2013), was a long time activist in New York City and was a war tax resister for over four decades. Marx was a co-founder of the New York Peoples Life Fund in 1971. The NYPLF redirected funds to social justice and community building efforts in New York.

The collection includes transcripts from three audiotape reels of interviewees (draft resisters/Americans in Canada in exile during the Vietnam War, some of whom chose to use only their first names) including: Dee Knight, the Pockocks, Jerry Friedland, George Cohon, Cliff Spires, Gary, Tina & Chuck, John Alexander, Howie & Cathie Prince, Jim Riordan, Anna Mallin, David & Diana Sells, Gail Petrie, Carol Belford, Spires family, Ned Jacobs, David McCaughna, Jack Calhoun, Pat Silvers, Doris Mahegan; also includes manuscript by Sallie Marx: "A Deserter Next Door.".

This collection is unprocessed and remains in the order in which it was donated.
