Biographical/Historical Note
The Nicholas M. Graver Papers document Graver's involvement and interest in the Anti-Smoking movement of the mid 1980s. Graver is a Rochestarian who worked with the Action of Smoking and Health (ASH) to bring about anti- smoking legislation in New York State and Rochester specifically.

This series contains correspondence from 1984- 1998 that Graver wrote to New York State legislators imploring them to pass anti-smoking legislation, as well a response from the Editor of Time explaining why the magazine would continue to publish advertisements from tobacco companies. There are also issues of ASH: Smoking and Health Review from 1984- 1986 that document the organization's committment to anti-smoking activism. The series includes printed materials published by ASH and other organizations as well as newspaper clippings that Graver saved.
