ABSTRACT
The article reports that the papers of Alderman Fanny Deakin, a woman Communist in north Stafford shire who was active from the 1890s until her death in 1968, have been deposited with the archives department of the Newcastle-under-Lyme Central Library. Some material, notably letters and photographs, has since augmented these papers of Tom Mann and A.J. Cook, together with correspondence from Tom Roberts, who was Midlands District Communist Party organizer in the 1930s, on recruitment and disciplinary matters. This material has been contributed by Lily Marshall, also a life-long Communist, who worked with Fanny for many years and whose own papers on the pottery industry, trade union and trades council and local government affairs are also now deposited with Newcastle Library.
