Descriptive Summary

 
Creator: Oehler, Hugo.
Title: Hugo Oehler: Factional Documents and Spanish Civil War Reports, Correspondence and Ephemera
Dates [inclusive]: 1932-1937
Abstract: The Revolutionary Workers League of the U.S. was a Trotskyist group organized in 1935 by the Left Wing Group of the Workers Party, who had been expelled from the Workers Party (U.S.). The records contain letters and reports (1936-1937) written from Paris and Barcelona by League members Hugo Oehler and R. Martin, largely relating to political developments in the Republic of Spain from a Trotskyist perspective. The collection also includes printed ephemera in Spanish distributed by Spanish Leftist groups. Also included are sixteen folders of material compiled for "special issues" of International News, an internal bulletin of the Workers Party (U.S.), Left Wing Group. The bulletins reproduce documents relating to predecessor organizations, including the Communist League of America, and discussions pertaining to the formation of the Fourth International; correspondence in these files includes two 1933 letters to Oehler from James P. Cannon on the letterhead of the Communist League of America.
