Liberated Guardian [run of 36 issues, 1970-73]
New York: Liberated Guardian Worker's Collective, 1970-1973. The Liberated Guardian was a radical left publication that originally started in the Spring of 1970, when a group of Guardian workers who went on strike and decided to start a new, collectively-run paper. There were allegations of sexism and exploitation, as well as strong political differences between the the offended faction and the mother publication. Guardian offices were seized in the dispute, and the front page of the premiere issue (the "Liberation Issue") features a large photograph of the staff standing in the fire escapes waving clenched fists. As was the case with many similar newspapers, publication was irregular, due to disputes, infighting, and ideological differences. The Liberated Guardian took a strong, armed-struggle line, as evidenced by the variety of domestic and international causes it supported and covered: Black Panthers, the Castro regime, struggles in Indo-China, North Africa, and the Chinese cultural revolution, et al. Institutional holdings are scattered and spotty according to OCLC; this run, lacking (by our estimation) only a handful of issues, is the most complete that we have seen. Tabloid (43.5cm). A cohesive run of 36 issues, dated from April 1970 - February 1973, with the sequence running as follows: Vol.1, Nos.1-3, 6-9, 11-14, 16-21; Vol.2, Nos.1-11; Vol.3, Nos.1-8. Newsprint, with illustrated covers in black, white, and color; illus. Old fold, mailing label, and bulk rate slug to Vol.1, No.1, though all remaining issues are unfolded; occasional toning or light wear to text edges, and some trivial spine wear to a handful of issues; Vol.3, No.8 has paper loss to upper left corner from p.3-16; first and last issues Very Good+, with the remainder of the run being Near Fine copies.
