Abstract:

This collection documents the activities of the International Workingmen's Association, especially in the United States. The records of the General Council (1871-1874) include correspondence (1872-1874) and convention material (1871). Subjects covered include letters written by Friedrich Sorge regarding Friedrich Engel's financial responsibility for the International; and the progressively independent behavior of the Swiss, Italian and Spanish federal councils. The records of the North American Federal Council (1868-1877) include correspondence (1871-1877), convention resolutions and proceedings (1870-1876), clippings (1870-1873) and broadsides (1871-1876). Topics relate to the Sorge faction of the federal council, commenting on the varying activities of the local sections and how the contemporary press viewed the International. The records of Section 26, Philadelphia (1871-1876) include incoming correspondence, minutes, financial records, membership records and advertising materials. Subjects included are dissatisfaction that Sorge's Section 1 dominated the federal council; The Hague conference; and the eight-hour movement in Philadelphia. The records of Section 1, St. Louis (1870-1877) include correspondence (1870-1877), financial records (1874-1876), and broadsides.
