Drafting process for "Tom Mann and his Times"

Torr08 - Featuring a mixture of evidently biographical information and more general historical records, this selection of research contains information of as much interest to those studying the Communist Party, or the Labour Movement as a whole, as it is to the student of Tom Mann. Mann's correspondence with George Lansbury, Keir Hardie, John Burns, Peter Kropotkin and Harry Pollitt provides a variety of perspectives covering the development of the Labour movement. Mann's speeches and publications include the Open Letter to British Soldiers for which Mann was imprisoned, his speech to the first RILU Conference, and an interview he gave on the subject of [John Stuart?] Mills. The biographical writings on Tom Mann include Harry Pollitt's first-hand account of the Mann and Pollitt trial. Alongside Wal Hannington's biography of Mann is Torr's first (48 page) biography titled 'Tom Mann'. The first full-length edition of 'Tom Mann' is then followed by tributes to him from authors including The Communist Party of the United States of America. His global influence reached further than the United States however, for this reason the grouping also includes press cuttings relating to China from Mann's time there, leaflets produced by the South African Labour Party, a film strip commentary on the history of the Australian Communist Party, and discussion of whether or not it is practical to form an 'American Labor Party'. Some of the images in this collection of research materials include photographs and cartoons of Tom Mann, as well as photographs of other key political figures. Tom Mann often wrote contributions to journals of the time including the Journal of the Amalgamted Engineering Union, other journals included in this grouping are the Australian journal 'The Socialist' from 1906 to 1909 and the 'Monthly Report'. Other highlights include a letter to Tom Mann which comments on Ramsay Macdonald's percieved influence over Keir Hardie; Tom Mann's letters from prison; discussion of the 1898 unity agreement between the SDF and the ILP; and a letter from Tom Mann to his comrades at Oxford University, expressing his feelings concerning 'the coming trial'.
