Subject: Re: M-I: Footnote on Ernest Rice McKinney

McKinney is clearly recognized as the Workers Party's labor scecretary in
Harvey Swados's novel Standing Fast.    Also a personal note:  when I joined
the Shachtmanites and came to NYC in 1957, I went to the University Place
Book Store (managed by ex-Shachtmanite Joe Carter) and bought some old books,
some of which were once owned by McKinney.  For example I still have Sidney
Hook's From Hegel to Marx,  which is inscribed "Ernest Rice McKinney,
December 7, 1936, from Mary Ann."  It also has his rubber stamped signature.
