Small Inaccuracies on Trotskyism Series

— Frank Fried

I NOTE THREE small inaccuracies in the second installment (ATC 54) of Alan Wald's piece on summing up Trotskyism: 1) The women who left the Chicago branch of the SWP were forced out by a kind of social pressure that reflected the prejudices of the time. They were not actually “expelled.” I think the difference, though not fundamental, is worth mentioning. 2) The year, as I remember it, was 1947, not 1946. 3) I was an active member of the Chicago branch during this time, but was never a “leader” of the branch or the party.

ATC 55, March-April 1995
