Publications by the Industrial Workers of the World

"Unlike orthodox Marxists, we had no revolutionary Bible. Our simple creed was summed up in the Little Red Song Book, the I.W.W. Preamble and a handful of ten-cent pamphlets." Ralph Chaplin, from Wobbly: The Rough-and-Tumble Story of an American Radical. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1948

In various legal actions against the I.W.W., the authorities made effective use of the Wobblies' (common nickname for members of the I.W.W.) own publications. The lawyers used these documents to demonstrate the extent to which the Wobblies' political philosophy was radically outside the mainstream of American opinion, and thus arguably dangerous.

The items listed below were used as exhibits in the deposition of John Huhges in Simmons vs. El Paso and Southwestern. The pamphlets and booklets were originally published by the I.W.W. Publishing Bureau. For I.W.W. correspondence and miscellaneous notes consult the correspondence page.
