Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"[ACLU founder and first Executive Director] Roger Baldwin deservedly was acclaimed 'the patriarch of the American civil liberties movement.' That movement... was a remarkable undertaking, one as important as the momentous civil rights crusade. Significantly, the two movements have worked in tandem to extend individual liberties in this land in a hitherto unprecedented manner."
Roger Nash Baldwin and the American Civil Liberties Union, 2000
