Abstract:

Author contracts and manuscripts, correspondence, minutes of stockholder and board of directors' meetings, subscription lists, book order information, stockholder information, photographs, clippings, printed material, and some artwork, with much of the material dating from the 1940's.

Notable pre-1920 records include photographs (many published in the International Socialist Review) of well-known radicals (William H. Carwardine, Eugene V. Debs, Charles H. Kerr, Mother Jones, Carlo Tresca, Big Bill Haywood, Emil Seidel), and of strike activity mainly in the U.S. Early files also include works by Edward Bellamy, Joseph Dietzgen, Friedrich Engels, Karl Kautsky, Karl Marx, Ben Reitman, Jack Sheridan, and Fred Thompson, as well as author contracts (with minimal correspondence). Order files contain correspondence with numerous labor and socialist organizations.
