Microform Collection

Location:  Microfilm HD 5504 A3 P75 1985

Scope: The President's Mediation Commission was appointed by President Wilson in 1917 to deal with "two vital aspects of wartime labor policy: 1) the spreading wave of strikes which interfered with the production of goods deemed vital to the war effort, and 2) the growth of labor radicalism associated with the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), which precipitated widespread state and local repression of labor's rights and murderous vigilantism."

The President's Mediation Commission investigated copper mining; foresting in the Pacific Northwest; telephone operators; and packinghouses. (Guide to the Research Collections in Labor Studies: The President's Mediation Commission, 1917-1919).
