Papers of Henry Demarest Lloyd, American journalist and social-economic reformer, whose name is associated with late nineteenth century populism and radical thought in the United States from 1881 to 1903. The collections documents Lloyd's work as one of the first systematic students of rising corporate capitalism; a pioneer in the field of business and social ethics for an urban-industrial America; a silk-stocking champion of labor's right to organize and a leader in its fight for better treatment; an investigator of the “new liberalism” and of cooperative movements in Europe and of state socialism in New Zealand, and a transmitter of their experiences to America; and an author whose work included his muckraking Wealth against Commonwealth (1894).
