Co-founder of the Socialist Party of America in 1900, Morris Hillquit was one of the men most influential in moulding the American socialist and labour movements. Politician, attorney and author, Hillquit opposed American intervention in World War I, and red-baiting in the Wilson era, and worked to defend employees in labour disputes. His articles, speeches and manifestos published on microfilm are an excellent source of information on national and international issues in the labour movement from the late nineteenth century to World War II.
