Abstract:

The collection consists of the research files of Theodore Draper from 1915-1990. The collection is comprised mostly of subject files and recorded interviews Draper collected during the course of his research on the history of American Communism, primarily those collected for the projected third volume, never completed, covering the period since 1930. The materials in this collection document the history of the American Communist Party, 1930-1945, and, to a lesser extent, American Communism from 1919-1929, as well as the persons (primarily Earl Browder, General Secretary of the Communist Party, 1930-1945) who were active in party affairs, particularly for the later period. The collection includes correspondence and writings of party figures, including Max Bedacht, Herbert Benjamin, Alexander Bittelman, Earl Browder, James Cannon, Eugene Dennis, and Vincent R. Dunne; taped interviews with Josephine Truslow Adams, Browder, Cannon, Manuel Gomez, and Joseph Starobin; summaries, notes and/or transcripts of interviews with Bedacht, Robert Bendiner, Benjamin, John Brophy, Browder, Esther Corey, Frank Crosswaith, Samuel Darcy, W.A. Domingo, John Frey, William Goldsmith, Robert F. Hall, J.B.S. Hardman, Granville Hicks, Sidney Hook, Ludwig E. Katterfeld, Jay Lovestone, Lewis Merrill, Richard J. Moore, Reid Robinson, Joel A. Rogers, James Rorty, Nat Ross, Jacob Spolansky, Bertram Wolfe, and Charles S. Zimmerman; internal party documents (originals and photocopies), including minutes of Central Executive Committee meetings; pamphlets; party and other radical periodicals; microfilm; and sound recordings. Also included are research files collected for Draper's book "A Very Thin Line: The Iran-contra Affairs" (1991). Materials include transcripts of the federal trials of Oliver North and John Poindexter; photocopies of Oliver North's private diary used as evidence in his trial; other memoranda and documents used as evidence in the Iran-Contra Affair; and printed material.
