Scope and Contents note

The Mary Jo Tormey collection contains photocopies of newspaper clippings that were collected between April 8, 1977 and December 18, 1977. The collection also contains two copies of posters. The collected documents cover the trial of Francine Hughes, of Dansville Michigan, for the murder of her ex-husband in March 1977. Many of the articles cover the support of Hughes as domestic violence becomes more of a public issue in the United States. The collection consists of three folders of articles, which are arranged chronologically, and posters.
