What group made Sandburg a member to great controversy?

He joined a local socialist party in Milwaukee, but I am thinking the answer is the NAACP to whom Carl made money contributions.

Thanks Roger, but this time just credit it to my symposium posting fee balance.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

Gene, you're going to kill me, but the entire posting fee balance was invested in the IPO of Facebook at $38 a share. Please double the amount you are sending.

RE: A Sandburg Stumper
Joe, the connection between Sandburg and socialism was a part of what our guide talked about when Vicki and I visited Connemara. That stuck in my brain, and I was ready if Rob ever asked about it.

Rob, I will guess the Imagists.

Sorry Roger that's not it either.

First clue. This organization has two levels of membership, but you have to be invited to either one.

Edit: I changed "had" to "has" and "had" to "have" because the group still exists.

Rob: when you said that Joe did not get the answer right-were you referring to his response pertaining to the socialist party in Milwaukee or to the NAACP?

RE: A Sandburg Stumper
Rob: this is not an answer to your latest "Sandburg Stumper." I was just wondering, did Sandberg become a member of the Abraham Lincoln Association? I figured that Paul Angle may have been a factor.

Bill,

I would think so, but to be completely honest I don't know for a fact. I know Tarbell was, and it would make sense that he was, but I'm just not 100 percent sure.

Clue #2. This group has existed under a few different names throughout the years.

No Bill, it isn't the Wobblies.

Clue #4. The group in question is definitely mainstream.

Final clue: The organization (and the reference to Sandburg) is to be found in a 32-page article in the February 23, 1976 edition of The New Yorker magazine.

I'm going to try one more time...because of Carl Sandburg's affinity for labor, is the answer the American Labor Party, who ran a candidate for president in 1976--(I think it was Lyndon LaRouche).
