The Revolutionary Age Masthead

CONTENTS BY ISSUE
(November 1918 until August 1919)



The Revolutionary Age was an American radical newspaper edited by Louis C. Fraina and published from November 1918 until August 1919. Originally the publication of Local Boston, Socialist Party, the paper evolved into the de facto national organ of the Left Wing Section of the Socialist Party which battled for control of the Socialist Party throughout the spring and summer of 1919. With the establishment of the Left Wing National Council in June 1919, the paper was moved from Boston to New York City thus gaining status as the official voice of the nascent American communist movement. The publication was terminated in August 1919, replaced by the official organ of the new Communist Party of America, a weekly newspaper known as The Communist. Other periodicals named "The Revolutionary Age" were published from 1929 to 1932, and in 1968. The issues below are the full run of the serial's first incarnation.

[TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: With this issue of The Revolutionary Age a note is issued that reads the following:
“Owing to the siumltanous resignation from the staff of The Revolutionary Age of John Read, Eadmonn MacAlpine and Ben Gitlow, due to opposition to the joint call issued by the National Council for a Communist Party Convention on September 1, and financial disorganization, this paper appears in half its usual size. We shall resume sixteen-page publication with our next issue. But money is needed.”
It should be noted tha while Gitlow was removed as Business Manager and noted as such, he is still accidently listed as part of the National Council.]
