Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This is a nine item collection of correspondence and writings of John Ginsburg. The IN correspondence is from the Communist Party and Peoples World. Ginsburg was critical of the positions taken by the American Communist Party during World War Two. The materials cover Ginsburgs criticism and responses to it.
The Library has no biographical information on John Ginsburg, but the collection indicates he was a member of the Communist Party in Los Angeles and had severe criticisms of their political positions during World War Two. Ginsburg wrote to the Daily Worker and the People's World voicing his objections to Communist Party actions. He apparently wrote at length on this subject and offered his own alternative proposals, some of which are in the collection.
