Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection consists of material concerning the Socialist Party in the U.S. and California, mainly during the 1930s and 40s, collected by Hyman Weintraub and William Goldberg in the course of their activities as local and national party officials. Includes local and national party publications, many of the Young People's Socialist League (YPSL), proceedings of conventions, minutes of committee meetings, press releases, membership records and dues books, financial reports and bulletins, chiefly in mimeographed form, and correspondence between Weintraub and Goldberg. Documents the struggle between the Party's radical and more conservative elements for control of the YPSL, and the heated internal debate over the Party's stand on World War II.
