The records we received include correspondence, publications, photographs, posters, and more, focused on the leadership of former Executive Director David W. Oaks. Mindfreedom staff prepared the records in Eugene and delivered them to Portland, where they were ushered into the archives by Jeff Colby:

You can read more about the collection, as well as the group's interest in preserving it in an archive, on David W. Oaks' blog. It was gratifying to see notes and comments about similar collections held in other institutions. We are proud to be able to preserve and provide access to Mindfreedom International's records as part of our commitment to documenting the full spectrum of the history of health care in the Pacific Northwest.
