Private collection
"Notes for a discussion on the Regeneration of the American Labor Movement" typescript. Edited by Resurgence, Evanston Ill.
A different version from the one published in The American Labor Movement (below)
The collection is arranged alphabetically and contains unpublished and published writings by Dolgoff and other anarchists, including Mikhail Bakunin, Max Nettlau, and Rudolf Rocker;
conference papers on self-management;
and a thick file of published biographical sketches of anarchists and other radicals (half in French, half in Spanish).
Much of the material concerns anarchism in Spain during the Spanish Republic and Spanish Civil War, including Frank Mintz’ 1967 book-length unpublished thesis, "La Collectivisation en Espagne de 1936 a 1939," subsequently published in revised form as L’Autogestion dans l’Espagne Révolutionnaire (1970).
Wayne State University. Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs.
