Biography and Organizational History


Kathleen (Kathie) Sheldon and Stephen (Steve) Tarzynski are husband and wife. They have two children, Mercy and Ben, and live in Santa Monica. In the early 1980s, the Sheldon/Tarzynski family spent two years in Mozambique where Sheldon researched women workers and Tarzynski worked as a pediatrician for the socialist government.
Together they were active in first the New American Movement (NAM) and then the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). Tarzynski served on NAM's National Interim Committee (NIC) from 1980-1981. He was Chair of the Los Angeles DSA in the late 1980s, and served on the DSA's National Political Committee (NPC) from 1990-1993 and in1996, and was chair of the DSA Executive Committee in 1994. Sheldon was on NAM's Socialist Feminist Commission in 1980 and 1981 and was later involved with the DSA's Feminist Commission.
Sheldon was active for many years with the Socialist Community School, serving on the School Committee, which was responsible for organizing classes for the school, and teaching a number of classes on feminism. Tarzynski taught at least one class on avoiding burnout and as a couple they taught a class about their experiences in Mozambique. Tarzynski served as President of the board for nine years ending in 1996. Both were also active in organizing the First Annual West Coast Socialist Scholars Conference held in Los Angeles in 1993. Sheldon and Tarzynski were both on the Arrangements Committee, with Sheldon serving as Conference Chair.
Tarzynski is a pediatrician at Kaiser Permanente in Southern California, and has been active in many health care related progressive issues. From 1977-1979 he served as vice-president of the residents union (Interns and Residents Association of Los Angeles County). Tarzynski was a founding member of the Los Angeles Health Organizing Committee (LAHOC), which was formed in May 1976 by health workers who were also NAM members. LAHOC also had non-NAM members and functioned as an independent body, working on union organizing among health workers (particularly those working for the Health Services Agency), increased health care for undocumented immigrants, reproductive rights and the Los Angeles Medical Power Structure (LAMPS) project, which launched a study to track who owned and controlled health care at the corporate level in Los Angeles County. He also served as editor of Health Activists Digest, the publication of NAM's Health Commission. After the merger, he continued to play an active role on the DSA Health Taskforce, especially around the attempt to implement a single-payer National Health Insurance system along the Canadian model (See also Prop. 186 folder).

Democratic Socialists of America and New American Movement

The New American Movement (NAM) was a socialist organization founded in June 1971. It sought to bring people from different parts of the working class together to support each other in separate struggles and to build a socialist party that could bring about a truly democratic revolution. NAM worked for better housing and health care, supported the fight for immediate reforms to expand women's rights, opposed racial and sexual oppression, and organized around such issues as nuclear energy, job safety, and foreign policy.
The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) was formed through the merger of NAM with the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee (DSOC) in Detroit on March 20, 1982. The DSOC, founded in 1974, was another nationwide socialist organization, but was seen by some NAM members as a more conservative organization since it was willing to work within the Democratic Party.
The unification of these two organizations into the DSA gave democratic socialists and other progressive activists an effective new voice. The new organization included both activism on issues of racial equality and justice, feminism, peace, full employment, establishment of a national health service, gay and lesbian liberation, defense and expansion of civil liberties, opposition to all forms of foreign domination, and opposition to nuclear power and weapons, as well as providing a voice for progressives within the Democratic Party. The Los Angeles Local of DSA was a very active chapter.

Socialist Community School

The school began in the fall of 1975 after a group of NAM members decided to follow the example of the NAM East Bay School in Oakland and reach out to educate people about socialism. The school intended to: 1) raise socialist consciousness in the community through education; 2) establish a positive socialist presence and to create a public NAM presence in Los Angeles; 3) develop the knowledge and skills of NAM members and independent activists as well as educate people new to politics; and 4) link concrete activist projects in the city with socialist ideas. With the merger, the DSA took over the running of the school. Classes taught included everything from Marxism, Euro-Communism, U.S. poverty, free speech issues, Los Angeles politics, school desegregation, labor organizing and history, the Spanish Civil War, South America, Africa, and the Middle East to classes on music, parenting, languages, and burnout.

Socialist Scholars Conference

Building on the successful East Coast based Socialist Scholars Conferences that had been running since 1982, the Los Angeles Chapter of the DSA, the Socialist Community School, and Concerned Faculty (UCLA), along with other sponsors including the Southern California Library for Social Studies and Research, sponsored the First Annual West Coast Socialist Scholars Conference in 1993. The call for papers issued for the event cites the 1992 Los Angeles uprising as a motivating factor for the conference. Scheduled plenary speakers included Rudy Acuña, Prossy Delacruz, Harold Meyerson, Mark Ridley-Thomas, Bogdan Denitch, Julianne Malveaux, and Manning Marable. The conference was an apparent success and plans were discussed for a follow-up conference in 1994.

Scope and Content

This collection includes correspondence, minutes, bylaws, flyers, speeches, articles, financial documents, planning and policy documents, address lists, personnel records, course listings, publications, photos, and clippings related to Kathleen Sheldon and Steve Tarzynski's involvement with the activities of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and New American Movement (NAM) including the Socialist Community School and the Socialist Scholars Conference from the mid-1970s through the end of the 1990s. It also includes a significant number of documents relating specifically to Steve Tarzynski's involvement with both NAM and DSA on health care issues. There are few if any personal (family) documents in this collection.
Of special interest are materials relating to NAM's transformation into DSA.


The collection is divided into 5 series: 1: New American Movement, 2. Democratic Socialists of America, 3. Socialist Community School, 4. Socialist Scholars Conference, and 5. Health Issues.


Folders are arranged alphabetically within each series. The collection was donated in several increments, divided and then reconstituted by different archivists. The folders that are labeled Tarzynski/Sheldon Papers instead of Sheldon/Tarzynski, were most likely created or collected by Steve Tarzynski.
