Report of the 1953 YPSL National Convention

[New York]: Libertarian Socialist League, 1953. 3p., mimeographed 8.5x11 inch sheets stapled at upper left, evenly toned, otherwise very good.

Diamond, who had resigned from the Socialist Party five years earlier, discusses the convention of the SP's youth branch, to which the LSL had been invited to send a delegate. He reports that YPSL was chafing under the control of the SP. Mentions attending a talk by Max Shachtman in the evening. Expresses surprise at the substantial improvement in quality of members and of organization as compared to earlier YPSL gatherings. In all, an interesting outsider's assessment of the ferment going on within YPSL at the time.
