Descriptive Summary

Creator: Socialist Party (U.S.).
Title: Socialist Party (U.S.) Minutes
Dates [inclusive]: 1900-1936
Abstract: The Socialist Party (U.S.) was founded in 1901, bringing together moderate socialists from the Social Democratic Party, and dissident members of the Socialist Labor Party. In 1936 the ongoing differences between the "Old Guard" and "Militant" factions, resulted in a split, with the Militant group retaining the SP name and much of the membership, while the Old Guard faction retained most of the organizational and financial assets. The collection contains subject files primarily relating to various conventions and committees of the New York City local of the Socialist Party, New York State conventions and committees, Jamestown (New York) local, and the Socialist Party's National Executive Committee, and also contains minutes of the Socialist Labor Party convention of 1900. Note: this collection has been microfilmed, and researchers must use the microfilm copy (R-7124, reels 9-10).
