Claude Mickleson, socialist activist, born 1923.

Claude’s story is of a working-class life with all its ups and downs. His different jobs and life experiences provide the backdrop to his continued political activism as he approaches his 100th birthday. Claude was interviewed by Trish Mensah for the Activist Memories series, supported by Bristol Older People’s Forum.

The Activist Memories series captures, through oral history interviews, the life experience of those who have fought for a better world.

    Very interesting reading about my Uncle! I learned a few things that I did not know! I might be persuaded to become a socialist but need to educate myself a bit more before making a decision!
    My father (Leonard Walter Mickleson….one of Claude’s older brothers) was also mentioned in the book. Nice to have information in writing to reflect back onto!

  2. I had the pleasure of knowing Claude for a few years in the Forest of Dean when he volunteered to read with Forest Talk, our local talking newspaper for the blind. I would love to have a copy of this book about him – we could read excerpts on our Forest Talk recordings for our listeners if we could have your permission to do this.
    Look forward to hearing from you
    Best regards, Christine
