The Human Rights Collection at the Molstead Library is a depository of Tony Stewart's personal collection which he donated to the library in 2008.  Mr. Stewart is a retired political science instructor who taught at NIC for thirty-eight years. This collection, dating from 1970 to 2008, details the regional and national events that took place.  It chronicles the formation of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations (K.C.T.F.H.R.), as well as other local/Pacific Northwest human rights groups. Documents from the K.C.T.F.H.R. date from 1980 to the present. In 1987 the City of Coeur d'Alene was awarded the Raoul Wallenberg Civic Award fom the Raoul Wallenberg Committee of the United States.
