Overview

Founded in Europe, headed by Karl Marx and dedicated to sweeping labor reform, the International Workingmen's Association gained its American faction in 1867. Though short-lived, the American IWA furthered important reforms in women's rights, labor practices, education, and currency issues, making its Papers extremely valuable for nineteenth-century political, economic, and social research.

The correspondence, organizational records, and conference reports reproduced in this microfilm edition of the Papers throw light not only on the formation and development of the IWA and its battles for workers' rights but also on the many factional disputes which finally tore it apart.
