Erwin–an autoworker, a Solidarity member, and a lifelong revolutionary–passed on November 30 at the age of 101. He had been involved in socialist politics since 1934, when he co-founded a socialist club at his high school, and he became a founding member of the Socialist Workers Party in 1938. Erwin is survived by his wife Estar and daughter Sonia.
