||Socialist Party (U.S.).
||Socialist Party (U.S.) Minutes
||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).
