Biographical history

Tim Buck (1891-1973), politician and labourer, was born in England and emigrated to Canada in 1910. Employed as a machinist he soon became involved in radical trade union activity and claimed to be a founder of the Communist Party of Canada. In 1930 he became general secretary of the party, a post he held until 1962. Buck was the author of many books, pamphlets and articles for the press in Canada and internationally including 'Canada, the Communist viewpoint,' 'Thirty years,' and 'Yours in the struggle,' a memoir of his years in the Communist world struggle.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of a copy of transcripts of taped interviews conducted by John Reynolds for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1964. The interviews were never broadcast. The material from these interviews and the transcripts formed the basis for Buck's memoir, 'Yours in the struggle,'and covers the rise of the Communist Party of Canada, Buck's relations with Communists in the Soviet Union and other places, and the denunciation of Stalin in 1956 at the 20th International Congress.
