Profile of Ruth Crow : a Communist Party member

Crow, Ruth (1996) Profile of Ruth Crow : a Communist Party member. unpublished. (Unpublished)


This is a profile of my political activities from 1936 to 1996, but my life cannot be seen as separate from Maurie's so I have included a few facts about Maurie's life. To set the picture about Maurie's and my relationship here are a few quotes from condolence letters: "Your partnership was an inspiration to us all and a rare argument for marriage" (from our next-door neighbour); "We know that you and Maurie shared much more than your family life together. You shared your political ideals and shared the responsibility of trying to achieve them in a climate that was sometimes unsympathetic"; "Your relationship seemed to me a rare instance of mutual love and support which to many of us is unobtainable".
