Descriptive Summary

Creator: National guardian.
Title: National Guardian Photographs
Dates [inclusive]: 1948-1992
Abstract: The National Guardian (later known as  The Guardian) was a radical leftist weekly newspaper published in New York City between 1948 and 1992. The  National Guardian reported on labor, activism, reform, and social movements without particular party affiliations, advocating for a unified leftist party in the United States. Known for its independent and investigative journalism, the paper produced significant pieces on civil rights and the Cold War, and was one of the few publications to print news sympathetic to Julius and Ethel Rosenberg during their trial and execution, with much of the paper's reporting coming from William A. Reuben. This collection is comprised of the photograph files of the  National Guardian, consisting of approximately 44,465 8x10 black-and-white photographic prints, along with some original cartoons and other graphic materials. The materials reflect the subject matter of the newspaper itself, reporting labor, activism, reform, and social movements.
