Rejoining the party

In the summer of 1995 Doris Marquit and Erwin Marquit then went to Helvi Savola to tell her that they were rejoining the Communist Party USA. Shortly afterwards, Janet Quaife and Harry McAllister also rejoined the Party. The Independent Communists of Minnesota never met again.

The Party’s policy was to welcome back those who left, although one of the veteran Minnesota communists, Clara Jorgensen, from one of the former farm clubs denounced their readmission.

At the District Convention in 1996, Janet Quaife, Harry McAllister, Doris, and Erwin Marquit were elected to the DistrictCommittee. Helvi Savola still served as chair.[2]

Communist Party MLK tribute
