Tresca, an anarcho-syndicalist and antifascist, was born in Salmona (Aquila), Italy. He was active in the socialist movement in Italy and in 1904 came to the United States to avoid a prison sentence. He was editor of Il Proletario, La Plebe, L'Avvenire, and Il Martello, and was a member of the Mazzini Society. In 1912 he associated with the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) in organizing the Lawrence textile workers' strike. He continued that association until 1916 when IWW leader "Big Bill" Haywood accused him of negotiating an improper deal with Iron Range, MN, authorities to be released from a homicide charge during the Mesabi Iron Strike. Tresca was imprisoned several times over the years as he continued a passionate militancy against Stalinism and Fascism. He was assassinated in New York City in 1943. The IHRC holds part one of a manuscript biography of Tresca by Max Nomad, Carlo Tresca, Rebel without Uniform; The Seed and the Seedling.
