Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Aldino Felicani Sacco-Vanzetti Collection spans the years 1914-1967, with the bulk dating from 1920-1927. The collection documents the efforts and activities of the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee to free Nicola Sacco (1891-1927) and Bartolomeo Vanzetti (1888-1927) from prison for the murders of Frederick Parmenter and Alessandro Berardelli, which were committed on April 15, 1920 in Braintree, Massachusetts. In particular, the collection documents the committee's propaganda campaign, Fred Moore's investigation and defense strategies, post-trial proceedings, and the execution of the two men. The efforts, financial and otherwise, made by labor unions, defense organizations, and individuals on behalf of Sacco and Vanzetti are also documented. In addition, Sacco and Vanzetti’s thoughts regarding the guilty verdict and their impending execution are included.

Both Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti wrote more than 200 letters while they were in jail, many of which share common themes, particurarly their innocence, the emotional and physical effects of long term imprisonment, and the injustice of the legal system. The letters the two men exchanged between themselves contain news about friends and family, their loyalty to their comrades, and words of support and encouragement. Each man also wrote several letters to members and friends of the committee extending their gratitude for the work that was being done on their behalf, others speaking directly to the historical significance of their fight, and still others that call for mass protests and demonstrations.

Throughout his correspondence, Sacco focuses primarily on the visits from his wife Rose and children Dante and Ines, and how they rejuvenated his spirits. In his letters to Mrs. Jack Cerise, Elizabeth Glendower Evans, and Aldino Felicani, Sacco explains the reasons for his hunger strike, his distrust of Fred Moore, and his conviction that his death will help create a better future for the working class.

Vanzetti corresponded with a number of people including Aldino Felicani, Elizabeth Glendower Evans, his sister Luigia, the Brini family, Alice Stone Blackwell, Roger N. Baldwin, and Eugene and Theodore Debs. The majority of the letters are reflections on the social, political, and religious literature was reading such as Bible, The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and Why Men Fight by Bertrand Russell.  In other letters, Vanzetti writes about Dedham and Braintree trials and the post-trial procedures, and the active role he played in his defense.

While in prison, Vanzetti wrote 54 essays, articles, autobiographical pieces, and editorials in which espressed his ideas about justice, freedom, the bias of the press, and the life experiences that influenced his decision to become an anarchist. Among these writings are “The Story of a Proletarian Life” and “Memories of My Mother’s Life”. In several essays, Vanzetti put forth his arguments for the necessity of a new trial. These include “What I Would Say to the Jurors in My Defense”, and “What I would Have Said to Thayer, Had He Given Me the Chance”.

The correspondence of the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee documents the efforts and activities generated by the committee, particularly in the areas of fundraising, disseminating propaganda, publicity, and organizing meetings and demonstrations. In addition, the committee’s relationship with the legal defense team, especially Fred Moore and William Thompson, is documented. The participation of labor unions and civil rights organizations, such as the United Mine Workers, the International Labor Defense, the Sons of Italy, and the American Civil Liberties Union is included. Letters written by Mary Donovan, Selma Maximon, and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn report on the organizing that was being done in cities throughout the country, while correspondence from Eugene V. Debs, Eugene Lyons, and Roger Baldwin provide insight into the case from a few of the American radicals who were sympathetic to Sacco and Vanzetti. The letters from Italian anarchists Carlo Tresca and Felice Guadagni are among those that refute the guilty verdict on the basis of political discrimination. Moreover, the efforts of several committees that were established while the men were in jail and after the execution such as the Sacco-Vanzetti Memorial Committee (which was made up of members of the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee), the Committee for the Vindication of Sacco and Vanzetti, and the Citizens National Committee for Sacco and Vanzetti are also documented.

Meeting minutes of the Executive Committee date from 1924-1927 and provide rare insight into how the committee operated. The majority the entries are comprised of interactions between the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee and the New Trial League and its response to Sacco and Vanzetti’s opinions about who should be in handling their defense. Other subjects include reports from field organizers, publicity arrangements, and fundraising matters.

One of the primary responsibilities of the committee was to keep the names of Sacco and Vanzetti from slipping into the back pages of the newspapers. They did this by constantly publishing and disseminating the facts of the crime, the trial, and subsequent post-trial proceedings. Some of the subjects covered in the publications are the trial and guilty verdict, the failure of the judicial process, the inequality of law in Massachusetts, and Judge William Thayer’s ability to conduct a fair trial. Elizabeth Glendower Evans, John Dos Passos, Eugene Lyons, and Upton Sinclair were among the contributing writers for the press releases, the official Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee Bulletin, and the “News Service” bulletins. Many untitled and unpublished articles by John Nicholas Beffel, Eugene Lyons, and Sinclair Lewis are also included.

The other important function of the committee was fundraising. Among the several expenses that were incurred over the years were attorney and court fees, the costs of the pre-trial investigation, and the contributions made to Sacco’s family. Other expenses, such as daily operating expenses, salaries of office workers, and fees for expert witness testimonies were paid for by contributions made by union members, individuals, and groups from all over the country, including other Sacco-Vanzetti organizations. For seven years, the committee sent out circular letters requesting donations, sold publications, held mass meetings where hats were passed, and received aid from The American Fund for Public Service, Inc., International Labor Defense, and the Workers Defense Union.

Fred Moore’s correspondence from leaders of the labor movement, radicals, and the progressive press documents the steps he took in transforming the trial from a local matter to an international cause. In addition, it documents his defense strategies, his relationship with Sacco and Vanzetti and the committee, and his resignation. Some of the topics discussed throughout are meeting arrangements, the activities unions and defense organizations were doing on behalf of Sacco and Vanzetti, and the relationships between the New York and Boston Sacco-Vanzetti defense committees.

Moore’s correspondence also includes the in-depth investigation Eugene Lyons (Morris Gebelow) undertook in Italy to find the Italian consulate employee Sacco said he had spoken with on the afternoon the crime occurred, the active role Elizabeth Gurley Flynn had in making decisions for the  committee and for providing the perspective of the American Civil Liberties Union on the case, and Sacco and Vanzetti’s active monitoring of the status of the case. The letters from the field staff, particularly Selma Maximon and Matilda Robbins, document their efforts to organize support with groups in New York and with other sympathizers throughout the United States.

From the beginning of his position as defense counsel to the time he resigned, Moore compiled twelve notebooks containing material he gathered from his investigation of the robbery and murder. The notebooks contain the results of his investigations such as the personal histories of Frank Silva, Jacob Luban, and other known criminals, and further questioning of several witnesses, among them Anna De Falco and Ruth Johnson. Also documented is the history of the get-away car, Vanzetti’s account of his treatment during his years in prison, and the cause of Frederick Parmenter and Alexander Berardelli’s deaths. In addition, testimonies from eyewitnesses, police, and character witnesses, the backgrounds and work histories of Sacco and Vanzetti, and an analysis of witness testimonies in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts v. Bartolomeo Vanzetti trial are recorded.

After Moore’s resignation in late 1924, William Thompson was named chief counsel. Consequently, the majority of the defense attorney’s correspondence, which dates from 1921-1956, is Thompson’s. The correspondence reflects the state of the case prior to Judge Thayer’s denial of the motions for a new trial in October 1921, the strategies Thompson wanted to implement as the options for a new trial became fewer, and the question of James McArney’s representation of Nicola Sacco. Also included are summaries of his conversations with Vanzetti, the procedures necessary to bring the case to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and the dynamics between Thompson and the committee.

Aldino Felicani’s correspondence dates from 1914-1967 and documents his efforts to prove Sacco and Vanzetti’s innocence both while they were alive and after their deaths. The majority of his correspondence from 1914-1920 is in Italian and contains letters from several anarchists, among them Tomaso Concordia, Norman Thomas di Giovaini, Carlo Tresca, and Erasmo S. Abate. Also included is correspondence from Elizabeth Gurley Flynn. After 1920, Felicani's correspondence reflects his position as treasurer of the committee, his role in the defense of Sacco and Vanzetti, and his formation of the Sacco-Vanzetti Memorial Committee. Moreover, his efforts publish to two magazines, The Lantern and Countercurrents, are documented. Much of the later correspondence with former Committee members, particularly Mary Donovan and Hapgood Powers, Creighton Hill, and Jackson Gardner provide details into their personal lives and careers in later years. Other important correspondents include Vincenzia Vanzetti, who kept Felicani up with the news from Villafalletto and the efforts there to clear Vanzetti’s name, Roger Baldwin of the American Civil Liberties Union, and the authors of the books, television and movie scripts written about Sacco and Vanzetti. The letters and newspaper clippings in this series are not translated.

Interspersed with Felicani's correspondence are several documents which contribute to the history of the committee and Felicani’s role in it. These documents include a piece Felicani wrote about Luigia Vanzetti after her death, which is the only documentation that exists in the collection specifically about her (in Italian), the history of Gutzon Borglum’s memorial sculpture, and the legal document giving Felicani power of attorney by Luigia Vanzetti, which gives explicit instructions concerning the dispersal of Bartolomeo’s ashes. Other notable papers are Felicani’s essays “In the Shadow of the Chair” and “Gardner Jackson: a Memoir of the Sacco-Vanzetti Days” because they chronicle the last hours of Sacco and Vanzetti and the ceremony at Forest Hills Cemetery.

The trial transcripts of the proceedings of Commonwealth of Massachusetts v Bartolomeo Vanzetti, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts v Nicolo Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, are also contained in the collection. Other legal records include the post-trial motions and supplementary motions, appeals, and responses to motions. Subjects cover the prosecution’s claim against Sacco and Vanzetti, the crime, Sacco and Vanzetti’s histories and characters, and the evidence. The legal records in this series are not complete. Included in the Manuscripts and Printed Material series are poems by Babbette Deutsch, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Carl Sandberg, and the majority of Upton Sinclair’s book, Boston. In addition, the series contains post-execution newspaper clippings from Italy, television scripts, and essays.

The trial of Sacco and Vanzetti, their deaths, and funeral are documented through photographs, newspaper clippings and press releases, arm bands, and original art work. Also contained in the series are a number of broadsides from unions and Sacco- Vanzetti defense organizations in Europe and South America, which represent the international response to the plight of the two men. Among these groups are the Comité de Ágication Pro Libertad de Sacco y Vanzetti (Argentina), Le CalVarie de Sacco et de Vanzetti (France), Irish Labour Protest Meeting Against Judicial Murder (Ireland), and the Comitato Pro Ribilitazione di Bartolomeo Vanzetti (Italy). In addition, cartoons from the Daily Worker provide political commentary from the communist perspective, while those from the Boston Post report on the big moments of the trial. The series also contains three scrapbooks: two consisting of newspaper clippings and press releases and one of photographs. The newspaper scrapbooks document the entire history of the trial through the 1960s. The “Publicity” scrapbook includes both clippings from both the mainstream press and the committee’s press. Among the subjects documented in the photograph scrapbook are the crime scene, Sacco and Vanzetti when they are first arrested, and Vanzetti’s fish cart. The loose photographs cover such events as the removal of Sacco and Vanzetti’s bodies from the Charlestown jail, the funeral procession through the North End and Scollay Square, and visits to the jail by Rose Sacco and her children, Mary Donovan, and Luigia Vanzetti.  Additional photographs document the public and personal reactions to the trial and execution of the anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti.  Of note are the photographs that show the public demonstrations and protests that occurred during this time around Boston and in New York, emphasizing police action at these events.  Also included are photographs of their supporters, such as Edna St. Vincent Millay, Jean Longuet, and Madame Séverine, as well as their family members and attorneys.

Historical Note:

On April 15, 1920,  Frederick Parmenter and Alessandro Berardelli were robbed and murdered at the Statler-Morrill Shoe Company factory in Braintree, Massachusetts.On September 11, 1920, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two Italian anarchists, were charged with robbing and murdering Parmenter and Berardelli.  On the same day, Aldino Felicani, a friend of Sacco and Vanzetti’s, along with other Italian radicals, established the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee (the committee) in Boston’s North End. Prior to their arrests, Felicani had begun publishing l'agitazione, a small newspaper that, after the arrest, became the committee’s official organ. Felicani also acted as the committee's treasurer and chief publicist. More importantly; however, Felicani was the laision between a group of Italian anarchists and a team of increasingly conservative lawyers.

The purpose of the committee was two-fold: to keep the name of Sacco and Vanzetti in the public’s conscious and to free them from jail. They did this by raising money to pay for the men’s legal expenses and publishing and disseminating news items which refuted every aspect of prosecution’s case. Fundraising efforts included sending subscription lists to labor unions and other progressive organizations, selling publications, and holding meetings featuring well known labor leaders. Over the years, radicals, civil rights leaders, and activists such as Joseph Ettor, Frank Lopez, Mary Donovan, Jackson Gardner, Hapgood Powers, Selma Maximon, Elizabeth Glendower Evans, and Creighton Hill all worked for the Committee.

In August 1920, at the urging of Italian anarchist Carlo Tresca and American Civil Liberties Union founder Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, the committee hired labor attorney Fred Moore of California to lead the defense team of William G. Thompson and Thomas and James McAnarney. Other lawyers who represented Sacco and Vanzetti were Arthur D. Hill, who was retained to make final arguments, and Herbert Ehermann.

Fred Moore, who had previously tried cases for the International Workers of the World, based part of his defense strategy on transforming a local criminal trial into an international cause. His connections with prominent socialist and labor leaders enabled him to enlist the help of many liberal, radical, and progressive organizations in the country. The United Mine Workers, International Ladies Garment Union, and the International Workers of the World were a few of many unions whose membership contributed substantially to the defense of the two men. Financial backing from such progressive organizations as the International Labor Defense Office and the American Fund for Public Service made it possible for the committee to do its work. The American Civil Liberties Union, the New England Civil Liberties Union, and the League for Democratic Control were among the the civil rights organizations that were active in the movement to free Sacco and Vanzetti.

In addition to these organizations, Moore enlisted the help of writers and intellectuals such as John Dos Passos, Eugene Lyons, and Upton Sinclair, who wrote articles and stories for The Nation, The New Republic, and The Federated Press Service, thereby keeping Sacco and Vanzetti headlines in the radical press for seven years. In addition, John Dos Passos and Upton Sinclair also wrote novels about the case. Moore also brought the case to the attention of prominent socialist leaders such as Eugene V. Debs, who became an important figure in the campaign to free the two men. Given the amount of publicity that Moore generated together with the fact that Sacco and Vanzetti were immigrants, it did not take long for laborers and leftist organizations throughout Europe and South America to form their own Sacco and Vanzetti defense committees.

On July 14, 1921 Sacco and Vanzetti were found guilty of robbery and murder. From November 1921-November 1923, Moore and the defense team filed seven motions for new trials. In the summer of 1924, the New Trial League was formed by Committee members Elizabeth Glendower Evans, Selma Maximon, John S. Codman, and John Van Vaerenwyck. The sole purpose of this group was to raise money for a new trial. On October 1, 1924, Judge Thayer denied all motions for a new trial. The New Trial League disbanded shortly after and gave the money it collected to the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee.

For the next three years, the committee continued to raise money and publish its manifestos, and Fred Moore continued to investigate leads. One such investigation occurred in Italy, where he sent Eugene Lyons (Morris Gebelow) to examine the customs agent who spoke to Sacco on the day of the murder. Fred Moore resigned his position in 1924 and William Thompson became chief counsel. Thompson made numerous attempts to overturn the verdict, including filing a motion for a new trial in light of the confession to the murders by convicted criminal Celestino Madeiros in May 1926. The death sentence, which was handed down on April 9, 1927, met with world-wide protest causing Governor Alvan T. Fuller to postpone the executions and establish an advisory committee, the Lowell Committee, to investigate the possibility of clemency.

The failure of the Lowell Committee to recommend clemency resulted in demonstrations all over the world, and although Fuller granted a ten day stay during which time several more appeals were made on behalf of the men, nothing could be done. Sacco and Vanzetti were executed on August 23, 1927 in the Charlestown State Prision in Charlestown, Massachusetts. On August 28, 1927, the funeral service for Sacco and Vanzetti was held in Boston’s Forest Hills Cemetary. Mary Donovan gave the eulogy.

Soon after the funeral, Aldino Felicani along with Creighton Hill, Hapgood Powers, Mary Donovan, and Gardner Jackson established the Sacco-Vanzetti Memorial Committee. The purpose of memorial committee was similar to that of the defense committee: to keep the names of Sacco and Vanzetti from fading from public memory. They did this by organizing memorial meetings to commorate the anniversaries of the executions. In addition, they made plans for Freedom House, a memorial building they wanted to be constructed in Boston near the Massachusetts State House. In order to pay for the building, Gardner Jackson approached sculptor Gutzon Borglum to make a bas relief of Sacco and Vanzetti, which they hoped would produce enough subscriptions to underwrite the cost of the project. At the first memorial meeting on August 23, 1928, the plaster rendering of the sculpture was unveiled. Considered part of the Felicani collection, the rendering was installed in the entrance way of the Rare Books Department of the Boston Public Library in 1979.

Although the Freedom House was never built, the memorial committee continued to work to clear the men’s names by holding anniversary meetings, publishing articles and memoirs, and appearing at speaking engagements. In addition, Felicani published two magazines - The Lantern, which was inspired by Sacco and Vanzetti and the anti-fascist Countercurrents.

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of their deaths, Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis issued a proclamation which stated that Sacco and Vanzetti’s trial was prejudiced against them because of their ethnicity and political beliefs and that given the limited scope of the appellate review, they should have been granted another trial. Because of this, Chapter 341 of the Acts of 1939 was adopted, which permitted the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to order a new trial both because the verdict was contrary to the law and because “it was against the weight of the evidence, contradicted by newly discovered evidence” and also “for any other reason that justice may require.” Finally, Governor Dukakis declared August 23, 1977 to be “Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti Memorial Day.” As of 2009, there has been no public memorial dedicated to Sacco and Vanzetti.

Mortal bullet has one short deep wide cut upon a "land." All test bullets fired through Sacco's pistol have two long shallow parallel cuts on a different "land." After Hamilton pointed out this wide difference the Prosecution vigorously objected to any more test shots in Sacco's pistol. B-2 V-2 - test bullets fired thru Sacco's pistol during trial. Mortal bullet ex 18 claimed by Prosecution that it was fired thru Sacco's pistol.

Item a: Fraher shell; [n.p.], [ca. 1921-1923]Add to your cart.View associated digital content.
The Fraher shell W. found a scene of murder. Prosecution claimed it was fired in Sacco's pistol. #1-2-3 are test shells fired in Sacco's pistol during trial. Sacco's gun's firing five strikes 23% off center of the primer. The Fraher shell has the dent in center. After Hamilton discovered this vital difference, the attys for defense invited the prosecution to fire 100 test shells in Sacco's gun to show it would not make a dent in center of primer - they declined the test. A different set of file mark records appear on primer of Fraher shell from those on the test shells. At first glance they appear to be alike. A close study quickly reveals the dissimilarity and positive proof that the Fraher shell was not fired in Sacco's pistol. View 1.

Item f: Vanzetti H & R Revolver - Ex. 27; [n.p.], 7 April 1923Add to your cart.View associated digital content.

At this date screw E was level with the surrounding metal. The line G-E was at an angle of 28 1/2o to the base line A-B. (Photo #1)

No scratches were upon the metal surrounding screw E showing no screw driver had been used to remove screw for inserting a new hammer.

Screw C was at an angle of 49to the base line A-B and level with the face of metal.

Hamilton discovered this evidence that the original factory hammer had never peen replaced as claimed by [the] prosecution in trial.

It was very important that Hamilton should be discredited so he could be driven out of [the] case & defense not have his services.

Therefore, during the arguments of [the] fifth motion (see item 7, photograph #2)

(#2)

Vanzetti's revolver was shown to the court by Dist. Atty. Williams and his attention called to how the condition of the screw E and [the] scratch on [the] metal under it, showed how unreliable was Hamilton as to his claim that the screw had not been disturbed. The district attorney had forgotten the photograph of April 7 before. For this #2 photograph revealed that since April 7 23 [someone?] had unscrewed the hammer screw about 1/32 of an inch and left a scratch on [the] metal under this screw. Had unscrewed the lge screw C about 1/8 inch

changing the angle of screw E  from 28 1/20 to 38 1/20    

changing the angle of screw C from 49to 60

Item h: Vanzetti Revolver - Ex. 27, 15 January 1924Add to your cart.View associated digital content.

Hamilton discovered in court that these screws had been tampered with. It was at this time that [the] court issued an order "That all exhibits should be turned over [the] Clerk of the Superior Court.

Gov't. Asst. Dist. Atty. J.W. Kieth gave [the] order to have revolver opened & in this position when photographed. Gave no reason why.

Opening the revolver permits the screw "C" to assume an angle of 450 or nearly to the angle it had Apl 7.23 before the screws had been tampered vith viz 490. See item 6, photo #1. Opening the revolver for photographing did not restore screw E to its original position.

The arrows point to the cuts.
