"Incorporating material from the George F. Parker archives of The American Flint Glass Workers Union."
Reprint of a two-part article titled "History of the American Flint Glass Workers Union", by T.W. Rowe, from the American Flint, v. 1, no. 8-9, June-July 1910.
"This specific work provides a look at the origin of the American labor movement, specifically as seen through the eyes of the organizers of the American Flint Glass Workers Union. It is a tale of preserverance and steadfastness in the face of hostility, providing a different viewpoint than is generally encountered in histories of glass manufacture in this country. In tandem with the growth of the Union movement, the development of machine-made processes and the use of child labor contributed to the complexities of the period. This important document is a part of the George F. Parker Archives of the American Flint Glass Workers Union held at the Museum of American Glass in West Virginia"--Introd.
