A list of all the sources consulted in writing this book would unnecessarily duplicate the footnotes. This brief note mentions only the most important and readily available sources relevant to Bill Haywood's career. There are, unfortunately, no "Haywood Papers." Rumors of small collections in private hands are heard from time to time, but investigation has led to nothing. Various other manuscript sources provide some Haywood material, including the IWW Collection in the Labor History Archives of Wayne State University; the Labadie Collection of the University of Michigan Library; the Socialist Party of America Collection in the Duke University Library ; the Algie M. Simons, Morris Hillquit, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, William English Walling, and Daniel DeLeon papers at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin; the Tamiment Institute of New York City; and the Ralph Chaplin Collection of the University of Washington.
The Miners Magazine is a valuable periodical source for Haywood's writings as are the International Socialist Review and the New Review. Other Socialist, Wobbly, and anarchist journals of the day—of which there are a spate—are also helpful.
There is no full-length biography of Haywood. William J. Ghent wrote a short but accurate account of his life for the Dictionary of American Biography, Volume VIII, 468, and Carl Hein contributed a good essay on Haywood to Harvey Goldberg's American Radicals (New York: 1957). T. K. Gladkov's Zhizn Bolshovo Billa (Profizdat, 1960) represents the only Soviet biographical research on Haywood, but it has not been translated into English and is difficult to secure in the United States even in its Russian edition. A less important Soviet account is B. Reinshteyn's note in the Bol'shaia Sovietskaia
