Emma Goldman Papers Project

The preparation for publication of the last of four volumes of the papers of Emma Goldman (1869-1940), American writer and activist. (24 months)

Emma Goldman: A Documentary History of the American Years 1890-1919, the first fully annotated documentary edition, traces the intellectual evolution of a dedicated advocate of liberty, and challenges her controversial legacy in light of information she deliberately concealed. We seek funds to assure the publication of Volume 4: The War Years 1917-1919, the final volume of the series. It encompasses Goldman's pre-WWI anti-conscription activities, resulting trial, 18-month imprisonment, and deportation to Russia. Thought-provoking analytical introductions, chronologies, and biographical, periodical, and organizational indices make it a stand-alone resource. Scholarly annotations build upon the Project's research, access to unpublished material, and familiarity with obscure historical references, difficult political tracts, legal transcripts and government documents, while preserving the gripping narrative of her life and times.
