Title: John Nicholas Beffel Papers
Dates [inclusive]: 1909-1970
Abstract: John Nicholas Beffel (1887 1973) was a radical journalist, publicist, and editor. A prolific writer of articles, essays, and publicity dealing with leftist issues, many pertained to the syndicalist labor organization the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), anarchism and several noted anarchists (he edited several works by or about them). Beffel also produced short stories, autobiographical sketches and poems. Much of his activity involved defense committees for radicals either prosecuted either for their beliefs or for activity related thereto. The collection contains correspondence, subject files, writings by Beffel and others, (unprocessed) Family Files, and an unprocessed Addundum.
