If anyone has got any more of these, or articles from it, please let us know!

I'd actually like to see copies of "Solidarity" and "The Industrial Worker". The old Greenwood Press did a whole bunch of facsimile volumes of radical and IWW press .... of which the "OBU Monthly" was part of. Libraries seem to be the only place to view these. I've tried to obtain some of the Greenwood Press volumes, but they are slim and few and expensive to purchase.

Some of these are just way too big for libcom, even after compressing, so I posted on Scribd.

How big is the file? As if it doesn't fit after compressing, you can always split it into a couple of parts…

It's around 36 MB, that's down from the 127 MB it was before compression. Yeah, maybe I can split them up, and then put a link in the comments to the full thing on Scribd.

Yeah, you could split that into three parts which isn't that big a deal. I know it's additional hassle but it would be great to have everything on here, as the problem with external sites is they may go bust/close down/move or delete the content.

Just finally finished with everything I have. Currently there are 25 full issues in PDF format here from the years 1919, 1920, 1937 and 1938. Most of them are pretty decent quality, some are a little less decent.

Thanks for putting these up. Over the years I've been fortunate to read most of these in original format. They are a treasure trove of information. Glad others can now enjoy their contents as well.

Does anyone know who the editor of OBUM was during the later run in the late 1930s?
