A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Organized Labor Collection - "Working people built America —its buildings, institutions, cultures and values. Knowing what occurred in the history of work in this country helps us understand our social and economic status today and prepares us to navigate the economy and politics of the future." American labor is rightly proud of many outstanding leaders. • In 1925 Asa Philip Randolph organized the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters urging blacks to join unions. He also persuaded President Roosevelt to form the Fair Employment Practice Committee and convinced Truman to curb discrimination in the military. He served on the executive council of the AFL-CIO and helped organize the "March on Washington," always very active in civil rights. • George Meany, a plumber, was elected business agent of his local union in 1922 and rose in 1934 to the presidency of NY State Federation of Labor, and to the presidency of the AFL in 1952, as well as the merged AFL-CIO in 1955. • Samuel Gompers was influential in the NYC Cigarmaker's Union after joining at age 13. In 1881 he founded what was later called the AFL which was essentially pure and simple unionism with principles still followed to this day. • William Jennings Bryan championed the common man, factory workers and farmers. He was Secretary of state for Woodrow Wilson. He ran for president with the AFL endorsement in 1908. Organized Labor!
