Any more of these fascinating 1940s IW's in the works?

Nah, what's up on libcom is all I have and I have no plans to do any further digitization or archiving.

However, there is an internal IWW archive for (primarily) members that exists and I could send an email to the person maintaining it asking to give you access to the IW section if you want.
