Introduction to the New Masses digital archive on Marxists Internet Archive
By Marty Goodman/ Riazanov Library

Current state of this archive:

The scans here I made from my personal collection, from the personal collection of Tim Davenport, from the personal collection of Ted Watts, and from the holdings of Holt Labor Library of San Francisco.

Note: Early on in this project, Stanford’s Hoover Library gave us very kind assistance in supplying color scans of color covers of two issues (July 1926 and May 1927) and with a color 2 page center graphic art work in May 1927 where we did not have access to the original paper. May 1927 is an exceptionally rare issue: neither Tamiment Library nor Hatcher Labadie library had a copy of it! Two weeks after I received those scans, a copy of May 1927 became available from Lorne Bair rare books, enabling me to make scans of it entirely from the original paper. Two or three years after Stanford provided the color July 1926 scans, I obtained an issue of July 1926 New Masses with its color cover, and re-did the scan of that.

I began this archive project in late 2014. By early 2016 it included digital images of all 85 issues of the monthly New Masses published 1926 through 1933. By mid 2017 it included the 52 more issues of the weekly New Masses of 1934. As of January 2018 it now includes all issues, all pages of the first 11 years of New Masses, 1926 through 1936.

Current plans are to finish providing scans of the 14 months of New Masses not available on the UNZ.org web site. UNZ.org currently has available most (but not all... 14 months of issues are missing) of New Masses 1937 - 1948 posted as low resolution scans made from scratched microfilm). We currently have over half of those "UNZ.org missing issues" (March 1941, some of November and December 1944, and Jan - June 1945) posted here, and plan to eventually provide Jan - June 1939, as well.

At that point it's probable I will end this project, and leave making a complete high quality / art-preserving digital record of New Masses to someone else. However, I do have access to original issues of New Masses 1937 - 1939, so it's possible at some time in the future work on this project will resume and more years of New Masses will become available here. But not for a year or more, at least.

I personally scanned every page of every issue from original paper, using art-preserving scanning strategies and relatively high resolution (600 and 1200 dpi). Epson GT 20000 and 10000 XL flat bed tabloid (A3) size scanners were used for the vast majority of the scans. Very occasionally a Contex Flex 50i broadsheet (A2) size flat bed scanner was employed for two page wide art. At times 2 page wide art is presented via stitching together higher resolution scans made on the tabloid size scanners.

Special note on the issues from 1934 through 1948

I began the above the above art-preserving digital archive of the first 8 years of New Masses, (during which it was published monthly) in 2014, and finished it in February 2017. It is in that period... and especially in the earlier part of that period, that this publication had the most and the best graphic art. This archive, years in the making due to the difficulty of acquiring unrestricted scanning access to every page of every issue, I completed making in February 2017.

In 1934 New Masses changed publication from monthly to weekly. By 1934, the political character of the publication had changed significantly, and its presentation of graphic art was by then greatly reduced.

I had not originally intended to continue to scan this publication beyond 1933... had not planned on scanning the weekly New Masses that began in 1934 and continued as a weekly through 1947 into January of 1948. Partly because of the significantly decreased artistic content, partly because of the change in the politics behind it, and partly because obtaining proper scanning access to all 52 issues for a given year seemed likely to be impossible given the small shopkeeper mentality of many special collections, and their hostility to facilitating making their precious hoarded material freely available via high quality scans to all. Also significantly in part simply because of the immense amount of work involved in archiving an art-bearing weekly publication.

However, I had to admit that 1934 in particular was a very important year for events in the American labor movement. And that the period of the transformation of third period Stalinism into Popular Front period Stalinism is an interesting and important one for those who wish to know the history of the American revolutionary left. The deciding event occurred when John Durham of Bolerium Books happened to acquire for sale bound volumes of New Masses... every issue in years 1934 through 1938 and half of 1939. And offered to sell them to me at a very reasonable price, because he supported the work I was doing. The quality of the paper in these bound volumes was exceptional. Far superior to that which I'd seen in other issues I had personally acquired and in issues I'd seen in much vaunted special collections libraries.

Unbinding these bound volumes so as to preserve as much of the paper edge to edge was time-consuming, tedious work.

It took more than 10 hours to properly unbind the each bound (6 month long) volume so as to extract without harming the issues.

As of this writing, May 2018, we now have posted here relatively high resolution scans of New Masses through the end of 1936.

Art scanned at 600 or 1200 dpi in gray scale and/or single bit (bi-tonal) black and white (with an occasional 2400 dpi scan here and there). After the end of the presentation here of the 1936 New Masses issues is another note that informs regarding material we have here beyond that, and our future plans on this project, which are still in flux, but do currently definitely include scanning 1937, 1938, and all of 1939. [The first half of 1939 is currently available here, as is the first half of 1945.]

NOTE: Explanation of the fragmentary runs of New Masses that follow: The UNZ.org PATCH

The material above this note is a relatively high resolution, art-preserving, complete archive of every issue of New Masses from its first issue in May of 1926 through the last issue in 1936.

Below this note, find various fragmentary runs of New Masses: 1939 Jan-June complete, 1941 March issues, 1944 one November and all December issues, and 1945 Jan - June complete. These are all of the issues of New Masses missing from the presentation of New Masses on the web site UNZ.org. Thus, this is our "UNZ.org New Masses Patch" section.

Over time we may add more material, extending the existing complete high resolution archive of New Masses further.

For a more detailed explanation, and a discussion of what plans we may have to present more of New Masses here,

Tables of contents for Jan-Jun of 1937 New Masses as a text file click here. Also available in more readable PDF file, click here


The Riazanov Library digital archive project has resumed scanning New Masses, starting with 1937. We have acess currently to good quality original paper for all of 1937, 38, and 39, and expect over the next year or more to extend this relatively high resolution / art-preserving digital archive of New Masses through 1939. We’re even now acquiring original paper source material for scans of some or all of New Masses in the 1940s. However, a final decision on whether we will scan 1940s New Masses has not yet been made.

NOTE: The next six issues of New Masses from 1937 have a numbering error printed in them. April 13 through May 18 1937 say they are Volume 23 number 4 through 9. This was an error by the publisher. In fact, they are Volume 23 number 3 through 8. The publisher corrected this error with the May 25 1937 issue, numbering that one correctly as Volume 23, Number 9. We here have listed these issues by the the number they should bear, not by the number they do bear. [This avoids the confusion of having TWO Volume 23 Number 9 issues.]
