Scope and Content Note

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 on labor and the left without particular party affiliations, advocating for a unified leftist party in the United States. Known for its independent and investigative journalism, the paper produced numerous significant articles concerning civil rights and the Cold War, including coverage of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg's trial and execution. The photographs document both domestic and international events, with an emphasis on activism, reform, and social movements.


This collection has not been arranged by an archivist. The materials are arranged in the order in which they were received from the donor.
