Title

Il Proletario [The Worker], Anno 28Chicago, Brooklyn: Industrial Workers of the World, 1924.

Description

The full run of issues of Il Proletario from 1924, companion volume to the full run of 1923 issues also in the collection.

This most important I.W.W. newspaper (which began in 1896 and lasted until 1946) was edited at various times by an all-star list of the Italian American left, from Carlo Tresca and Mario De Ciampis to Arturo Giovannitti, Angelo Faggi, Giuseppe Cannata and Edmondo Rossoni.

The motto of the paper, evident on this page, is “Educazione – organizzazione – emancipazione. Conquistando la fabbrica, conquisteremo il mondo [Education – organization – emancipation. Subduing the factory, we will conquer the world]. The “Hour for Action” lead story is by Mario De Ciampis.

Besides his role as a long-time editor of Il Proletario, De Ciampis was a leading historian of the Federazione Socialista Italiana, and a close associate of Carlo Tresca. Ironically, unlike 1923, q.v., there was no May Day issue in 1924, because the newspaper was in the middle of moving its base of operations from Chicago to Brooklyn, where it remained. See Durante, Italoamericana, for a good discussion of the trajectory of this important newspaper, going back to its early years early in the 20th century.
