Cannery and Agricultural Workers Industrial Union 1933-1937

History

The 1930s saw a surge of union organizing and major strikes. Communists were leaders in these struggles, organizing for their own unions and others, which frequently generated repressive action against them. Pat Chambers and Caroline Decker were organizers for the Cannery and Agricultural Workers Industrial Union (CAWIU), a Communist union, and soon became the victims of California's Criminal Syndicalism Law. California vs. Pat chambers et al documents a three-year court struggle against 18 CAWIU organizers which jailed several of the men in San Quentin and the women in Tehachapi.
The Criminal Syndicalism Act passed the California Legislature in 1919 during the "red scare" which followed World War I. This law defined as a crime the use of force and violence "for accomplish- ing a change in industrial ownership or control or effecting any critical changes."
Originally used to jail members of the Industrial Workers of the World, the law later prosecuted Communists and other radicals. Agricultural interests anxious to repress farm labor organizing turned to the Criminal Syndicalism Act. They first used it in 1930 in Imperial Valley when five Communist farm labor organizers were imprisoned. In the big 1933 cotton strike in the San Joaquin Valley, authorities arrested the leader Pat Chambers and charged him under the Criminal Syndicalism Law. However, a hung jury failed to convict him.
The Criminal Syndicalism Law was used again in July 1934 during the state-wide persecution of Communists flowing from the 1934 waterfront and general strike in San Francisco. Deputies arrested eighteen people for vagrancy in a sweep at the headquarters of the CAWIU in Sacramento. The defendants were winnowed down to eight including the two top Communist farm leaders, Chambers and Caroline Decker. Those men and women were charged under the Criminal Syndicalism Law. The hysteria was heightened during the pre-trial period by a supposed "kidnap" of the star witness for the prosecution by Communist supporters.
The jury was divided and took four days to reach a split verdict. They found the defendants innocent on one count and guilty on another similar count. The judge ignored this contradiction and sentenced the defendants to prison terms.
Leo Gallagher led the appeal to the Sacramento Court of Appeals. The Court's decision was handed down on September 28, 1937. The judges rejected most of the appellants' objections to the conduct of the trial and reaffirmed the constitutionality of the law, but wrote, "The effect of conflicting irreconcilable verdicts in this case, however, compels us to reverse the judgment." It went on to say, "It would be impossible to reconcile these verdicts. They are a part of the same trial and all depend on identical evidence." The Court ordered the defendants released. The law itself remained.
This case was not handled by the law firm Norman Leonard was associated with but by Leo Gallagher who later became a partner of Katz, Gallagher and Margolis, a firm of labor and civil rights attorneys in Los Angeles with close ties to Leonard's firm.

Subseries 3.1.2:  Kremen, Shirley, et al. vs. United States 1950-1961

Extent: (3.25 cubic feet)

Separated Materials

Fifteen photographs have been removed from folder 2/01, and can be found in the Labor Archives Photograph Collection.
Some duplicate copies of exhibit quality material have been removed from folder 1/08 and placed in the Labor Archives Ephemera Files.

Arrangement

The files are arranged in three subseries: Subseries 1 contains correspondence and general information relevant to all stages of the case; Subseries 2 groups together documents from when the case was at the district and appeals court levels; Subseries 3 contains records from when the case went to the Supreme Court. Most folder titles include the number used in Leonard's filing system. Files for the Kremen case created during the district and appeals courts proceedings were assigned the number 8984; when the case reached the Supreme Court, the number was changed to 8924.

History

Kremen, et al. v. United States was an ancillary case from the 1950s Smith Act prosecutions of the Communist Party. After being convicted under the Smith Act in 1951, four Communist Party leaders failed to surrender, and instead went underground. One of these men, Robert Thompson, was captured on August 27, 1953, in a cabin near Twaine Harte, in the Sierras of California. Arrested along with Thompson were five other Party members who were subsequently charged with harboring a fugitive. This became known as the harboring case.
The five defendants in this case were Shirley Kieth Kremen (also referred to as Lee Kaplan), and at 21 years old, the youngest Party member to be prosecuted during this period; Sidney Steinberg (also referred to as Sidney Stein or Joshua Newberg), a former Assistant National Labor Secretary of the Party who had successfully evaded arrest since 1951 when he was indicted under the Smith Act; Carl Ross (also referred to as Carl Rasi or Robert Newman), a former State Secretary of the Minnesota Communist Party; Samuel Coleman (also referred to as William Gordon), a Party leader from New York; and Patricia Blau (also referred to as Janet Conroy), from Denver, Colorado. Norman Leonard and Richard Gladstein were both involved in their defense. First convicted on April 26, 1954, in 1956 the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the guilty verdict. The Supreme Court, however, reversed the decision in 1957 on the grounds that the seizure of evidence used against the defendants had violated the Fourth Amendment.
When the F.B.I. originally arrested the group, it confiscated the entire contents of the cabin where the defendants had been staying. As can be seen in the Government Exhibits folders and in the inventory of seized property, this included everything from Greig records to "1 pair socks--men's--dirty." Leonard and Gladstein requested an accounting from the F.B.I., and received an 18 page inventory (see folder #2/24). It its decision, the Supreme Court said that it could not condone the law enforcement agency's indiscriminate search and seizure. The timing of the case is important. By 1957 the legal climate had changed and the U.S. government was losing its efforts to convict Communist Party members. In this case, the Supreme Court rebuked the F.B.I. for its overzealousness.

Scope and Contents

The files for this case contain correspondence, research material, news clips, notes, and legal documents including motions, memos, briefs, exhibits, and trial transcripts.
Among the correspondence are letters between Leonard and the defendants and their families, correspondence with other lawyers discussing legal strategies, and letters sent to the San Francisco Examiner criticizing the paper's coverage of the case. There is also much correspondence regarding financial matters, especially the difficulties of paying court costs, bail and lawyers' fees. Individual items include a letter discussing Max Silver, a witness at the HUAC hearings, and a letter from Steinberg outlining his views of government's motivations for pursuing the Kremen case.
Other notable items include support material issued by defense committees, such as the Civil Rights Congress, and statements by the defendants about their arrests and jail conditions. The government exhibits include a wide range of information in the form of photostats of notebooks, licenses, receipts, and other items seized form the cabin where the defendants were arrested. Folder 2/02 contains a list of each of the 122 exhibits. Fifteen photographs of the interior of the cabin have been removed from 2/01 and placed in the Archives' photo collection. Folder 2/04 has copies of letters and notes discussing Communist Party affairs and the Party's position on various issues.
Also of interest are: biographical statements on each of the defendants; questions posed to prospective jurors, e.g. inquiries about whether they were members of or knew any members of 22 different groups on the Attorney General's list of subversive organizations; and notes about the credibility of various government witnesses. Within the transcripts to the original trial, there are indexes to the witnesses and exhibits that appeared in the trial. These indexes can be found in Vol. 1, pages 22 and 100, and in the beginning of Vol. 2.

Subseries 3.8:  California Labor School, Subversive Activities Control Board Hearings 1940-1956

Scope and Contents

The Norman Leonard Collection holds documents of the Subversive Activities Control Board (SACB) hearing in 1955-1956 on the California Labor School (CLS) when that law firm represented the School. The Collection includes transcripts for each day of the hearing and approximate 260 exhibits which the SACB introduced into evidence.
Forty-five exhibits were copies of the People's World and other documents by or about the Communist Party. The balance consisted of CLS documents - term catalogs, flyers, class outlines, etc. - which will provide researchers additional documents and supplement the Archives CLS Collection. Of significance are documents describing the founding and activities of the Southern California Labor School (Southern CLS), as there is no material on that branch in the original CLS Collection.

Arrangement

Except for the term catalogs and class listings found at the beginning of this Collection, the exhibits are not in any subject or chronological order; they are arranged by exhibit number for the transcripts; the beginning of each transcript volume has a listing of the exhibits introduced that day. To facilitate researchers who are primarily researching CLS activities, a listing of exhibit materials produced by the School has been extracted and reorganized to follow the subject arrangement used in the CLS Collection. The documents can be located by their exhibit numbers.
