Wilhelm Weitling (1808-1871) was a German-born tailor, inventor and editor. In Germany he worked as a journeyman tailor and was a prominent socialist agitator. After emigrating to the U.S. in 1848, he organized an Arbeiterbund or "Workingmen's League" for skilled craftsmen and established a community in Iowa based on his socio-economic theories. He also was the founder and editor of Die Republik der Arbeiter in New York City from 1850 to 1855.
