The Labor Union Periodicals series provides the first and only comprehensive microfilm collection of national labor union periodicals. Filmed from the holdings of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, The Johns Hopkins University library, and the U.S. Department of Labor library, Labor Union Periodicals reproduces virtually every national trade union periodical launched in the United States through 1955. Some of these titles date from the middle to late 1800s.
Part 2: The Printing Trades brings together 18 titles representing 10 unions from as early as 1866 through 1955. All are in English except the Buchdrucker-Zeitung, the German-language periodical of the International Typographical Union. Most were affiliated with the American Federation of Labor.
