Collection Overview

This collection consists primarily of records pertaining to union activities in the southeastern United States during the era of the Steel Workers Organizing Committee (SWOC), prior to the formation of District 36, although the records continue into the USWA period, mainly during the second world war years. These SWOC and United Steelworkers of America (USWA) documents include correspondence, reports, telegrams, contracts, petitions, resolutions, newsletters, newspaper clippings, agreements, meeting minutes, and audits. The records concern relations with companies and local unions within the Birmingham, Alabama, area, relations with the International Office in Pittsburgh, SWOC organizing efforts, and cases before the National Labor Relations Board. Major correspondents include USWA executives Philip Murray, David J. McDonald, Clinton S. Golden, Harold Ruttenberg, and Howard Hague, as well as William Mitch, Southern director of SWOC; and Reuben Farr, director of USWA District 36.
