The Joe Hill Memorial Edition of the IWW's "Little Red Songbook" was issued by the union in 1916, soon after the execution of one of labor's most beloved songwriters. This replica, reprinted by the Hungarian Literature Fund on the centennial of Joe Hill's execution, contains fifty-eight songs and poems to "fan the flames of discontent." Joe Hill--a Swedish immigrant, hobo, organizer, and musician--added words to tunes borrowed from hymns, tin pan alley, and vaudeville,helping to knit together an innovative, diverse, and militant movement of workers during a time of severe and violent repression.
