Dead Socialist Administration

For reasons I don’t fully understand, I don’t have a record of any Socialists dying in the period 6-19 February, so while we’re still brooding over Eisler and Wilkinson (see below) and waiting for the anniversary of Georg B�chner to come round once again, as it does, this is a good opportunity to get the whole Dead Socialist administration out of the text file it’s been sitting in for the last year and a bit, and onto a spreadsheet, which will make it much easier for me to organise everything…

… and also to oversee a substantial expansion of the database… and this is where you, readers, can do your bit. Just scribble the names of your Favourite Dead Socialists in the comments box below, and I’ll do my best to work out when they died, and to give them the commemoration they deserve when the time comes…

(Thanks are owed to Norm, who has already passed on well over a dozen useful suggestions, including some scandalously obvious ones I’ve somehow managed to overlook; note also that my current list is disproportionately made up of reasonably well-known dead European men from the social democratic / Marxist traditions, so names from outside those particular orbits will be particularly welcomed.)
