1. Independent Progressive Party 1938-1954, 1986

Scope and Content Note

The Independent Progressive Party records consist of the organization's administrative and subject files, and Henry Wallace campaign material.
 

1.1 Administrative files 1946-1954

Scope and Content Note

The Administration subseries of the Independent Progressive Party series contains documents generated by the national, state, Los Angeles County, and Los Angeles neighborhood levels of the party. These records include by-laws, founding papers, correspondence, financial records, minutes, newsletters, party platforms and resolutions, and photographs. Through the folder titles, one can gain a sense of the organization of the party through its various clubs and committees. While the collection contains records from the multiple branches of the organization at the national and state level, it is particularly strong in its documentation of IPP activity in California and Los Angeles due to Jack Berman's leadership in the Los Angeles County arm of the IPP. The collection contains significant runs of the national newsletter, National Guardian, and the Los Angeles newsletter, I.P.P. Organizer. The collection also contains individual issues and small, incomplete runs of the newsletter by the youth arm, local clubs and special interest committees of the IPP. Additionally, the Administrative series contains records generated by the Progressive Citizens of America and the Hollywood Independent Citizens Committee of the Arts, Sciences and Professions, two organizations that were the precursor to the IPP. The photographs depict figures such as Senator George Pepper, Senator Hugh Mitchell, actress Olivia De Havilland, Groucho Marx, Congressman Hugh de Lacy, Billy Graham, Ellis Patterson, Hugh Taylor, Paul Robeson, IPP chairman Edward Mosk, Farmer-Labor Party Governor and Wallace campaign coordinator Elmer Benson. The photographs also document the 1948 Wallace rally at Gilmore Stadium and a mine workers' strike. Most of the photographs are unlabeled and undated but document IPP and IPP-affiliated figures.
