Edmund Frow will best be remembered as the founder, with his wife, Ruth, of the Working Class Movement Library. Thompson's The Making of the English Working Class (1963) and the academic vogue for labour history. Trailing round England with a tent, later a caravan, the Frows were thus able to scour bookshops countrywide for the bargains that radical literature then provided. With Frow's death, we lost one of the last and finest representatives of an extraordinary generation of working- class autodidacts and agitators. His library survives as a memorial both to the man himself and to the rich plebeian culture which produced him.
For the Frows, as they readily admitted, book-collecting was not just a pastime but a disease
Teacher and librarian whose legacy is a comprehensive archive of labour history. Frow was born Ruth Engel, of partly Jewish, partly Irish extraction, and grew up between the wars in the north London suburb of Mill Hill. Her father had been a concert pianist who, due to rheumatism, had become an international commercial traveller. For the Frows, as they readily admitted, book-collecting was not just a pastime but a disease. Educators and proselytisers for the cause they believed in, they saw in the knowledge of working people's history both an argument for socialism and a precondition for its achievement.
