DRL Digitizes Fred Wright Cartoons

The Digital Research Library has digitized and mounted online work by former United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America (UE) staff cartoonist Fred Wright. The web site, Drawing on the American Labor Movement, features the entirety of Wright's "Labor History" series in addition to a sampling of his other works. This series of 177 cartoons from the Archives Service Center describes some of the conflicts and hardships faced by workers during the American labor movement, from the colonial period to the Vietnam War.
