Dues Roster – note funds collected for the support of Sacco and Vanzetti at the bottom.

The Atlantic describes events this way:

In 1921, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, both Italian-Americans, were convicted of robbery and murder. Although the arguments brought against them were mostly disproven in court, the fact that the two men were known radicals (and that their trial took place during the height of the Red Scare) prejudiced the judge and jury against them. A series of appeals followed, funded largely by the private Sacco and Vanzetti Defense Committee [to which we believe the Umberto Lodge contributed from these records].  On April 9, 1927, Sacco and Vanzetti's final appeal was rejected, and the two were sentenced to death and executed by electric chair on 23 August 1927.
