The Bulletin
and The Bulletin of International Socialism
[New York]

(1964-1998)


New York. This paper started out as the organ of the “American Committee for the Fourth International” that resulted from a split 1964 in the U.S. Socialist Workers Party. Aligned internationally with the Socialist Labour League (Gerry Healy) the paper was initially titled Bulletin of International Socialism. Shortly into the 3rd volume the name simply became The Bulletin and the group publishing it became the Workers League. Unique on the left in the U.S. the paper by the 1970s became a twice-weekly journal and toward the end of that decade, became the first paper to use full color half-tones for color photographs. In 1993 the paper upgraded to become a totally color journal and changed it’s name to The International Workers Bulletin. In 1998 the paper folded and the Workers League started a web-only presence titled The World Socialist Web Site. This archive is complete... every issue, every page... from the first issue in 1964 thru the end of November 1973. Scanned mostly from holdings of Holt Labor Library and the Riazanov Library project, with some issues missing from those holdings provided by scans off a microfilm made by the NY Public Library, and from original issues held at Tamiment Library.

In October of 1973, toward the end of Volume 9, The Bulletin of the Workers League doubled its production frequenty, and became bi-weekly. It celebrated this with the printing of a full color photo on the cover of October 12, 1973 issue, of Tim Wohlforth (the editor) addressing a "Twice Weekly Rally", apparently (judging by the sign in the photo) exhorting the membership to put out the paper on a daily basis.

[Archivists’ observation: Decades later Tim Wohlforth acknowledged in his book The Prophet’s Children what many other observers on the left at the time and subsequently concluded: The Workers League in the USA was too small and had too small a base to sustain a weekly, let alone a bi-weekly production schedule, and thus this total focus on putting out a bi-weekly press significantly drained the organization of its ablity to do much other than put out the paper, and comrpomised it in other ways as well.]

Short note on the use of color in some of the issues of The Bulletin.
