Norman Mattoon Thomas(November 20, 1884 – December 19, 1968) was achieved fame as asocialist,pacifist, and for theSocialist Party of America.
It was Thomas' position as aconscientious objectorwhich drew him to theSocialist Party of America(SPA), a When SPA leaderMorris Hillquitmade his campaign forMayor of New Yorkin 1917 on an anti-war platform, Thomas wrote to him expressing his good wishes. To his surprise, Hillquit wrote back, encouraging the young minister to work for his campaign, which Thomas energetically did.Soon thereafter he himself joined the Socialist Party. Despite his membership in theMarxistSPA, Thomas was never himself an orthodox Marxist, instead favoring aChristian socialistorientation.
