Wagner Labor Archives, a special collection at NYU Libraries with a focus on labor and the Left, holds books, pamphlets, serials, manuscripts, photographs, films, posters, buttons, cartoons, and printed ephemera related to anarchism. Highlights include letters of Emma Goldman, manuscripts of Alexander Berkman, photographs of Rudolf Rocker, and publications such as Why and Fraye Arbeter Shtime, as well as trial testimony, and numerous oral history interviews with 20th century anarchists.
