Administrative Committees

While the Steering Committee consists of every volunteer and administrator of MIA, there are several committees on MIA that fulfill the many administrative tasks necessary for keeping this organisation in good order. The committees we have fulfilling these functions are not complete, we’d both like more volunteers in each committee, and the formation of new committees in areas we are not addressing here. For example, an organising committee (for getting more volunteers, merging with other online projects, etc.), a legal committee (for securing rights from publishers, ensuring compliance, etc.), and others. Please write to the MIA Admins with your ideas—any MIA volunteer can form a committee. You can find the information and work these committees produce in our administrative pages.

Finance: (Juan Fajardo) This group pays our bills and keeps all our accounts in good order.

Janitors: (Andy Blunden & Jοnas Hοlmgren) This committee is a catch-all ‘clean-up’ committee which performs System Administration, directory and HTML architecture, diagnosing and correcting link problems, maintaining administrative pages, and creating new efficient methods of working on MIA.

Technical: (Jοnas Hοlmgren & Graham Seaman) This group looks after server admin, email services and technical matters in general.

Languages: (Juan Fajardo) The development of MIA language sections is critical to building a truly international library useful to all people. This Committee helps bring together the efforts of multiple languages, whether in cross-indexing authors, sharing resources and recruiting new volunteers/organisations/external websites into MIA.

MIA Admins: (Andy Blunden, Juan Fajardo, Jοnas Hοlmgren, Philip Mooney, Einde O’Callaghan, Graham Seaman, David Walters, Micah Muer, Zdravko Saveski) These administrators have been volunteers of MIA for several years and administrate multiple different sections in broad collaborative efforts. When some archive needs work done but doesn’t have any volunteer responsible for it, one of these administrators will do the work. These administrators are considered representatives of MIA, and answer and/or redirect all general mail that comes into MIA. At times this committee will discuss minor administrative matters that are not significant enough to bring up to the steering committee, but this is a fairly rare thing.

News: (David Walters) that all updates to the archive are made known to all of our volunteers and readers who subscribe to our newsletter.

Secretary: (Andy Blunden) This role is the only elected position at MIA. The Secretary manages the debates, agenda, and voting of the steering committee.

Reading the Paper


Zodiac: Initiated our project in 1991. For 6 years built up an archive of Marxism on the internet. Main contributions were building a digital movement of Marxism, transcribing the classics of Marx and Engels, along with later initiating archives for other writers including Lenin, Mao, and others, and transcribing some of their main works.

Brian Baggins: Brian joined in 1997 and with five other volunteers, he laid the cornerstones of today’s MIA. In addition to his many technical contributions behind the scenes, Brian developed many prominent sections for MIA, including the History Archive.

Sally Ryan: (1996 to 2003) Kept thriving in difficult circumstances during 1997–1999; assisted in the creation and collaboration between and Supported women’s rights in MIA like no other volunteer by transcribing a tremendous amount of women’s writings and dealing with Marxist subjects traditionally considered ‘unimportant’ by men – e.g. the family, children, and literature. Played a very important role in the Subject Archives, including the creation of the essential “Women and Marxism Section” and initiated early massive contributions to the Encyclopedia of Marxism, contributing hundreds of political biographies and more. Created and ran archives for Eleanor Marx, Kollontai, and Shachtman. Regular contributor to the ETOL, Kautsky, and the Art and Marxism archives.

Tim Delaney: (Mar. 1998 to Feb. 2000) Administered the Marx/Engels and Lenin Archive’s with dedication and consistent effort. Spent three years volunteering on MIA, completing the transcription of the difficult Grundrisse, and leading the efforts to transcribe Capital Volumes 2 and 3. Provided critical assistance when transitioning from to in the summer of 1998, and served as one of our few main contributors for years.

Jørn Andersen: (Nov 1998 to Nov 2001) Created the MIA “Non-English Archives”. Contributed vast amounts of materials in many languages. Built ties with non-MIA organisations, and convinced many to mirror or migrate their works into our archives. Jørn’s contribution was absolutely critical to our development as an international and multi-lingual organisation.

Wojtek: Worked for many years as the Polish Section Administrator.

Hasan: (Feb. 2004 to January 2012) Created Urdu Section and stimulated expansion in South Asian languages, member of Admin. Ctee. until his death in 2012.

Robert Cymbala: (2001 to 2005). Worked extensively in organizing much of the transcription of the Lenin Collected Works for the V.I. Lenin Internet Archive. Worked as an Administrator for the Archive. Also contributed to the technical administration of the MIA.

Brian Reid: (2006 to 2010). Worked across all sections of the English language, creating new archives for scores of members of the various sections of the Comintern.

Karol Bóna:  Worked for many years as an administrator of the Czech and Slovak Language Sections.  We were saddened to learn of his death in January 2024.

M. Sivalingam: Volunteered as the Tamil Language Section Administrator from 2010 until his death in March 2024.
