Debs, Eugene V. (Eugene Victor), 1855-1926
Scope and Content of FondsThis small but extremely important collection of letters were written to George H. Tucker during 1924, when Tucker was an employee of Newfoundland Light and Power Company, St. John's. They were written by Joseph R. Smallwood, who was living in New York City, working for the New York Leader, and involved in campaigning for Eugene Debs, the Socialist Party candidate for President of the United States. - - These letters provide a rare, first-hand account, in Smallwood's own words, of his political philosophy during this period of his life. There is much discussion of Smallwood's desire to return to Newfoundland to establish a socialist movement patterned after the British Labour Party. The last letter is dated February 10, 1925 from Grand Falls, Newfoundland, where Smallwood had gone to organize a branch of the International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers.
Extent of Fonds20 letters (82 pages); 3 other items
