Twentieth Century Radicalism in Minnesota Oral History Project

Titles Twentieth Century Radicalism in Minnesota Oral History Project
Description The Twentieth Century Radicalism in Minnesota Oral History Project consists of 37 interviews generated between 1986 and 1989 for the Project to Document Radicalism in Twentieth-Century Minnesota and 33 previously conducted interviews. Carl Ross, former Minnesota Communist leader, served as project director. This oral history project has been one part of a larger effort by the MHS Research Department to uncover the role of left-wing radicalism in shaping the state's political culture. Radicals who were active in the decades up to 1960 were interviewed, including men and women, members of various left-wing political parties and unaffiliated activists, artists, organizers, and WPA workers. The other major product of the MHS radicalism research was an annotated bibliography of sources on the subject in the collections of MHS and the University of Minnesota libraries, "Radicalism in Minnesota, 1900-1960: a survey of selected sources", published by the Minnesota Historical Society Press in 1994.
