The National News Council papers are held in the Social Welfare History Archives. The Council was created in 1973 in New York City upon the recommendation of an independent task force of the Twentieth Century Fund, a research foundation. Conceived as a private, nonprofit organization, the council began operation with two basic objectives: to consider complaints brought against the media, whether by individual citizens or organizations, concerning alleged misstatements, inaccuracies, or unfairness; and to study possible infringements on the freedom of the press. A Guide to the Archives of the National News Council is available from the Silha Center for the Study of Media Ethics and Law, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Minnesota, 1986.
