Printed Ephemera Collections at Tamiment Library: Organizations

A guide to the Printed Ephemera Collections at NYU's Tamiment Library


The Printed Ephemera Collection on Organizations, PE 036 contains fliers, broadsides, leaflets, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, press releases, and programs arranged alphabetically by organization.

The collection represents thousands of organizations that are political, anti-war, legal, student and radical in nature. Examples which include the Black Panthers, Workers' Defense League, American Labor Party, Social Democratic Federation of America and New England Free Press, demonstrate the depth and diversity of this collection.  

Often times, formed for a specific purpose for a limited period of time, certain organizations have very short date-spans and the folders will contain an end date.  For other organizations, dating is open-ended as material may be added; therefore the folder will note a beginning date but no end date, e.g, 1914-.

Anarchist Organizations

Below is a list of anarchist organizations that can be found in the Printed Ephemera Collection on Organizations, PE 036. It is not comprehensive, as some anarchist groups were no doubt overlooked. However, it should prove to be a good starting point for researchers on anarchism and anarchist organizations. One can also consult the Printed Ephemera Collection on Subjects, PE 029, where general material on anarchism and anarchists can be found as well.
