|Tom Mann (1856-1941) was a leading figure in the British labour
movement, as an agitator, union leader, political party official and
labour journalist. He was elected first Secretary of the Independent
Labour Party in 1893 and founded the Workers Union in 1898. A member
of the Socialist Party and later the Communist Party of Great Britain,
he never lost his radical edge.
