Preliminary Inventory to the Harry Fleischman Papers
||Harry Fleischman Papers
||Harry Fleischman was a lifelong labor and socialist activist. His activities in the
Socialist Party included serving as National Chairman of the Red Falcons, regional
director of the Indiana-Illinois Socialist Party, and campaign manager for Norman
Thomas's presidential campaigns in 1944 and 1948. These experiences informed his book,
Norman Thomas: A Biography, published by W.W. Norton in 1964. Fleischman also worked as the labor and political
editor of the Voice of America, as the director of labor and race relations at the
American Jewish Committee, and was a board member of the Workers Defense League. This
collection contains correspondence, typescripts, testimony, transcripts, scrapbooks,
memos, photographs and research files. The research files pertain to Fleischman's
Norman Thomas biography and to an uncompleted film project on Thomas.
