Arrangement: Chronological by date of draft.
The series consists of two typed drafts of the committee's report that was submitted to the State Senate on April 14, 1920. The first draft is a partial copy of the report that contains occasional pencilled additions. The second draft is a near complete typed copy of the report signed by members of the committee. The drafts do not include the table of contents, index, or illustrative material contained in the published report.
The four-volume published report was entitled "Revolutionary Radicalism: Its History, Purpose and Tactics" (Albany: 1920) and was issued to recount the committee's investigation into and conclusions regarding radical activities. The report was compiled largely from secondary sources, but also from the committee's investigations, hearing testimony, and from analyzing a few of the large number of documents seized in raids by the committee. The general introduction to the report summarizes the activities of what the committee saw as the radical movement, outlines the committee's investigation, and reprints remedial legislation proposed by the committee.
