Subseries 1.2
American Communist Party (1930-1945), 1919-1975
Boxes 6 - 18

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of material relating to the American Communist Party from 1930-1945. This material was collected by Draper as research for the unfinished third volume of his history of American Communism. Materials include party documents, subject files, as well as correspondence, notes and files relating to the writing of the book. Numerous photocopies and original items have been labeled by Draper as "Wicks material," "Lovestone material," or "Zimmerman material." These designations identify either the source or the general subject to which the material relates. During the course of his research, Draper interviewed the widow of Harry Wicks, who allowed Draper to use documents in her possession from her husband's files; some she gave to him outright. These are designated "Wicks materials." "Lovestone material" refers to items relating to the group led by party leader Jay Lovestone and their expulsion from the party in 1929. Much of the Lovestone material was acquired (in original or photocopied form) by Draper from individuals interviewed. In some cases, Draper made typed copies or transcribed portions of the manuscript These are so designated.

Arrangement Note

Communist Party documents and Draper's notes are arranged in chronological order. Subject files are arranged in alphabetical order.
