Gus Hall (1910-2000) was an activist, politician, and prominent member of the Communist Party of the United States, and was one of the people arrested in the 1949-1958 Smith Act trials of Communist Party leaders. The Gus Hall Papers contain the professional papers of Hall throughout his time as secretary-general and president of the Communist Party of the United States of America as well as his personal correspondence to his family during his time in jail.
The papers contain passports, correspondence (including letters from Estonain and Russian socialists and revolutionaries during the period 1916-1944), fragmentary memoirs, unpublished manuscripts, family papers, brochures, and books of the Estonian bolshevik, mostly written in German. Also included is a copy of Northern Underground (1963) by Michael Futrell with corrections in Kesküla's hand.
The papers consist of business correspondence, literary manuscripts, radio scripts, and some translations of Němeček's works. The bulk of the collection documents his broadcasts which covered Czechoslovakian history, politics, economics, and literature. Němeček also spoke on refugees.
