Abstract:

Records of a Marxist adult education center (1944-1956) in New York City mainly concerning its listing by the Subversive Activities Control Board as a communist front.

The records include legal documents, hearing transcripts, and petitions and statements in support of the school's positions. Brief files also concern internal operation and administration; among them are incomplete general correspondence; annual reports; executive committee meeting minutes; bulletins of the school's predecessor, the School for Democracy; departmental memoranda; course listings; newsclippings; and speeches and statements by the director, Howard Selsam. Of note among the fragmentary, routine correspondence is a letter from Philip S. Foner, who taught labor history at the school.
