Scope and Content Note

This small collection consists of one record box of material generated and collected by Thomas Stamm during the course of his personal research, writing, and involvement with the Revolutionary Workers League. The majority of the collection consists of correspondence between Thomas Stamm and other individuals such as Max Schachtman, Carl Cowl, James T. Farrell, Meyer Shapiro, Robert J. Alexander and Edward Oehler. Copies of publications such as Fighting Worker,  Ahora, Political Notes, and the  Marxist Worker are interspersed throughout the collection. There are four folders (53-56) that pertain specifically to Stamm's interest in the Trotsky assassination, although this topic may be present in other areas of the collection. There are 4 unidentified tapes on magnetic reels labeled 1-4 and accompanied by a typed transcript of a "tape 2" which may be the tape 2 that is present in this collection. Personal material related to Thomas Stamm exists in the form of his diary at the start of the collection. There are also many published and unpublished manuscripts and articles by Thomas Stamm, some of which are undated, although a possible date range could be ascertained by examining surrounding and related material in the collection.


The order in which these materials were sent to the Tamiment Library has been maintained.
