Earl Browder (1891-1973) was the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the United States from 1930-1946, the "years of its largest membership and greatest influence." Mr. Browder, whose father had been active in the Populist movement, broadened the Communist Party's appeal, supporting many of President Roosevelt's domestic policies and helping to organize trade unions. In 1946, encouraged by the Russian Communist Party, the Communist Party of the United States expelled him.
This collection, microfilmed from the original held in the George Arents Research Library, Syracuse University, includes Mr. Browder's papers and manuscripts as well as copies of the Communist Party periodicals, the Labor Herald, 1922-1924; The Workers Monthly, 1924-1927; The Communist, 1927-1944; Political Affairs, 1945-1975; and pamphlets and other works published by the Communist Party of the United States.
