Description

Excerpt from Portrait of an American Labor Leader, William L. Hutcheson: Saga of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America, 1881-1954 William L. Hutcheson's extensive personal files and correspondence, extending over a period of forty years, have been at my disposal through out. These were made available to me, and that for the first time to any writer without reservations, by Maurice A. Hutcheson, and by u.b. General Secretary Albert E. Fischer. Included are a great variety of socially and historically significant items, which shed much new light on the character and personality of our subject. The discoveries I have made therefrom will, I am confident, add much to the rounded picture of William Levi Hutcheson. Also made available to me in their entirety were the Executive Board's minutes of the Brotherhood, fortified by vital data from the parent American Federation of Labor. I have, of course, thoroughly examined the published proceedings of the union itself. In a year spent on research, extensive travel and scores of interviews I have profited from the generous help of more people than a brief preface can mention. I should like to single out at least those who were able to supply information to me from their long and intimate association with Hutcheson himself and their experiences in the labor movement.
