Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Writings, correspondence, notes, memoranda, clippings, other printed matter, and audiovisual material, relating to Marxism; the international communist movement; communism in the Soviet Union, the United States, and elsewhere; literature and art in the Soviet Union and in Mexico; and the Mexican artist Diego Rivera. Includes some papers of Rivera, and papers of Ella Wolfe, wife of Bertram D. Wolfe. Materials in the increment consist largely of correspondence, writings, and printed matter added to the collection by Bertram D. Wolfe's widow, Ella Wolfe, in the years following his death in 1977. Additional items became part of the papers after Ella Wolfe's death in 2000. Much of the incremental materials pertain to Bertram Wolfe's career as a critic and historian of Marxism and Soviet communism, as well as his work as a biographer of Diego Rivera. They also document Ella Wolfe's role as her husband's collaborator and caretaker of his legacy, while showing her as a personality in her own right with a wide network of friends and correspondents.
