Ralph Critichfield ('Ivan')

Last month's Socialist Standard carried an obituary for Ralph Critchfield, who sadly passed away in November of last year. Readers of the Socialist Standard — and the blog — will have known Ralph better as 'Ivan' in the pages of the Standard. As his obituary details, Ralph was a regular writer for the Socialist Standard over six decades, as well as serving for a time as one of its editors.

As this blog is primarily dedicated to the digitisation of the Socialist Standard, I thought it would be worthwhile to bring together on one page a chronological list of Ralph's articles, reviews and regular columns from the Standard and elsewhere that are currently available on the blog. At the time of writing that amounts to over 500 pieces. This page will be regularly updated as I add more of Ralph's articles to the blog.
