[Minutes from five meetings]

New York: Libertarian Socialist League, 1952-54. Mimeographed minutes from five meetings, all including additional materials stapled together with them. Dates of meetings are March 8, June 21 and June 28 1952 (stapled to the former), and March 7 and April 17 1954. Generally toned and fragile, some edge chips.

The LSL rejected Stalinism but was otherwise broad, incorporating democratic socialists as well as some left anarchists. Some members were close to the Socialist Party. Topics of discussion include the dispatching of agents to become members of competing left groups, preparations for and aftermath of Thomas Stone's trip to Europe where he met with Third Campers from France, Spain, and Vietnam (his passport was confiscated upon his return), and the effects of FBI visits on members who decided to cease poltical activity rather than endure investigation. The April 17 minutes include a page discussing the change of the organization to League for a Workers' World.
