This collection of letters exchanged between Socialist Congressman and newspaper editor Victor Berger and his wife, Meta, a Milwaukee school board member and UW Regent, provides an insider's view of state and national politics. Additionally, the collection serves as a glimpse into the marriage and family life of a prominent Wisconsin couple. Whether discussing women's suffrage, the Russian Revolution, or colleagues such as Eugene Debs, Carl Sandburg, and Lincoln Steffens, the Bergers wrote both as interested observers and as actors who sought to shape events.
