The 2016 Friends of the Merrill-Cazier Library Lecture will feature John Sillito and John McCormick. On March 17th they will discuss their book, A History of Utah Radicalism: Startling, Socialistic, and Decidedly Revolutionary.
Utah, now one of the most conservative states, has a long tradition of left-wing radicalism. Recounting its long history, McCormick and Sillito focus especially on the Socialist Party of America, which reached a peak of political influence in the first two decades of the twentieth century - in Utah and across the nation.
