  • Harvard Library: Joshua Prager Collection on Norma McCorvey and Roe V. Wade: features both original and photocopied documents compiled by the journalist Joshua Prager in the course of his research for a book about Roe V. Wade. The full collection includes correspondence, photographs, printed material, speeches, articles, financial records, journal entries and notes, pro-life poems and songs, notebooks and journal entries, speeches, court documents and depositions, prayer cards, contact lists, and travel itineraries. This material documents the personal and professional life of Norma McCorvey, as well as the history and the aftermath of the 1973 Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision. Joshua Prager received much of this original material in 2011 from McCorvey’s former partner, Consuela “Connie” Gonzales. In 2014, McCorvey granted Prager ownership of the papers he had received from Gonzales. Prager collected some of the other Roe V. Wade research material found in this collection by contacting people from McCorvey’s past.
