A Century of StruggleAlice Kessler-Harris and Others
To mark the 100th anniversary of the formation of the American Federation of Labor, the National Museum of American History of the Smithsonian Institution invited a group of scholars and practitioners "to examine the work, technology, and culture of industrial America." The conference was produced in cooperation with the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations. The excerpts on the following pages are drawn from papers and comments at that conference, in the Museum's Carmichael Auditorium, November 15 and 16, 1986. Mary Kay Rieg, Olivia G. Amiss, and Marsha Domzalski of the Monthly Labor Review provided editorial assistance.
This excerpt is from an article published in the August 1987 issue of the Monthly Labor Review. The full text of the article is available in Adobe Acrobat's Portable Document Format (PDF). See How to view a PDF file for more information.
