Orwell's list

George Orwell towards the end of his life kept a list of 'crypto-communists and fellow travellers' including Alex Comfort, author of the Joy of Sex and sometimes contributor to anarchist publications, and Paul Robeson. Paul Robeson was described as 'too anti-white', in 1949 Robeson had been targeted by racist riots in Peekshill, New York having spoken out against the KKK.

He not only maintained the list but sent a selection from it to the British Government's Information Research Department.
