Re: H-SHGAPE QOTW - GAPE Digital Resources

Hi everyone

I *also* like talking about radicalism in the GAPE. One of my favorite resources in the University of Washington's "Mapping American Social Movements" Project. They have an excellent breakdown of socialist membership between 1904 and 1940, which you can find at http://depts.washington.edu/moves/SP_map-members.shtml. They also have great maps relating to the Knight of Labor, IWW, and National Women's Party.

Re: H-SHGAPE QOTW - GAPE Digital Resources

Greetings all. I really like talking about radicalism in the GAPE. There is a good collection of sources on the American Socialist Labor Party at https://www.marxists.org/history/usa/eam/slp/socialistlaborparty.html. I especially like using the party platform from 1877, because by our standards it's a pretty moderate reformist platform yet was so "radical" at the time. If you poke around Marxists.org there are tons of other sources for the period you might find useful.
