Abstract: Sam Dolgoff (1902-1990) was an anarchist author and editor born Sholem Dolgopolsky in Byelorussia. He emigrated to the United States prior to World War I and joined the Young Peoples Socialist League in 1917 and the IWO in 1922. He served on the editorial board of Spanish Revolution, and wrote for other anarcho-syndicalist publications, often under the pseudonym Sam Weiner. He was a leading figure in the Libertarian Book Club, and wrote or edited several books until the late 1980s. The collection contains: unpublished and published writings by Dolgoff and other anarchists, including Mikhail Bakunin, Max Nettlau, and Rudolf Rocker; a collection of documents and ephemera by Cuban anarchists; and published biographical sketches of anarchists and other radicals. Much of the material concerns anarchism in Spain.
