ASC Creates Finding Aids to More Labor Collections

The Archives Service Center released new finding aids (ie, collection guides) that describe two dozen labor collections we hold. Some of these document local labor unions like the United Brewery Workers Local 267 or the United Steelworkers of America, Local 178. Others pertain to labor organizations or companies, such as the Rainbow Kitchen or the Mon Valley Unemployed Committee. Still others document collections of individuals, including Francis C. Shane and Thomas M. Kerr. Some of these latter collections also contain significant oral history collections donated to ASC by Lawrence F. Evans and John P. Hoerr.
