The Intercollegiate Socialist. Vol. 2 No. 3. February-March, 1914.

Quite a few items of interest in this number of the Intercollegiate Socialist, one of the last before it would become ‘The Socialist Review.’ Perhaps the most illuminating historically is the discussion at the I.S.S.’s 10th Congress where a left and right, in the aftermath of the war and the October Revolution, takes shape.

The Socialist Review was the organ of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society, and replaced The Intercollegiate Socialist magazine in 1919. The society, founded in 1905, was non-aligned but in the orbit of the Socialist Party and had an office for several years at the Rand School. It published the Intercollegiate Socialist monthly and The Socialist Review from 1919. Both journals are largely theoretically, but cover a range of topics wider than most of the party press of the time. At first dedicated to promoting socialism on campus, graduates, and among college alumni, the Society grew into the League for Industrial Democracy as it moved towards workers education. The Socialist Review became Labor Age in 1921.
