Papers of Betty Gannett, an officer of the Communist Party (USA) primarily relating to her work as a Marxist theoretician, writer, and teacher.

There is also a very small quantity of personal correspondence (including some letters from Elizabeth Gurley Flynn), 1942-1971, and some material relating to the litigation to deport her under provisions of the Smith Act. On tape is a recording of Gannett's funeral.
