OK, here goes.  It's not much, but this is not thoroughly
researched, and it's been a while since I've seen any of these.
But it's a place to start.  There's more references within some
of these books.
Russell Campbell, Cinema Strikes Back: Radical Filmmaking in the
United States, 1930 - 1942.  (Ann Arbor: U Michigan Press, 1982)
[Thanks, Jeremy, for pointing this one out again.  I _was_ aware
of it, as a matter of fact.  It was presented as a thesis at North-
western in 1978.  So far, it seems to be the only published book
devoted solely to the subject.]
Joel Stewart Zuker, Ralph Steiner, Filmmaker and Still Photographer.
(New York: Arno Press, 1978)  [Steiner was, IMHO, the best _filmmaker_
in the group and its periphery.]
Ralph Steiner, A Point of View. (Middleton: Wesleyan UP, 1978)
Kazan on Kazan, by Michel Ciment. (New York: Viking, 1974)  [The first
chapter of this contains Elia Kazan's recollections of his work with
Lewis Jacobs, The Documentary Tradition (New York: Hopkinson and Blake,
1971)  [Has some material in the 1940s section.]
Richard Meran Barsam, Nonfiction Film, A Critical History. (???)
[Also has a separate 1930s/40s section with relevant material.]
In addition, I know that there's a collection of articles for a book
in the works in Germany; however, the publication date for this is
unclear.  I'm unaware of any articles in journals written on the
subject.  Jeremy, do you know of any?  Or anybody?
That's it.
(if you are looking for the bilder deep your ear on the movietone!) FW 062.08
