Abstract:

Correspondence, diaries, writings and photographs of May Walden, mainly dating from 1892 to 1959.

About half the collection consists of correspondence, the bulk between Walden and her daughter, Katharine Kerr Moore, detailing domestic life during the Depression. There are letters to Walden and to Charles H. Kerr relating to their political interests; significant correspondents include William Jennings Bryan, James Russell Lowell, Frank W. Taussig, Clarence Darrow, Helen Keller, and Margaret Sanger. Also brief notes from Theodore Dreiser, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Edward Everett Hale, Alan Lomax, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Margaret Chase Smith. Among Walden's works are her diaries, 1913-1956, and her essays on various topics including birth control, the Socialist home, votes for women, and the sanitary collapsible cup used as a campaign novelty by Eugene Debs in 1912 (sample cup included). There are photographs of the family and of Eugene Debs, Jack London (with Coxey's Army), Max Hayes, Robert Howe, Seymour Stedman, and Ernest Untermann.
