ASC Adds AV material to Steffi Domike collection

The Archives Service Center recently processed a substantial size of AV material that is part of the Steffi Domike collection. Domike worked as an electrician's assistant at Clairton Coke Works where she belonged to the United Steelworkers of America (USWA) Local 1557 and was a union and equal rights activist. She became a filmmaker and went on to document steel industry labor movements of the Pittsburgh area, including the 1892 Homestead Strike and the community impact of the closing of U.S. Steel's National Duquesne Works in the 1980s. Materials relating to the oral history project Crashin' Out: Hard Times in McKeesport and the documentary film/book The River Ran Red include grant proposals, research articles, publicity articles, and archival images. Production films from Women of Steel and The River Ran Red are also included.
