The dissertation argues that the Ohio People's (Populist) party was essentially a labor party. While Ohio farmers remained loyal to the traditional parties, many Ohio labor organizations?including the United Mine Workers and the central labor bodies of Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus?endorsed the People's party. The state's leading trade unionist, John McBride, led the forces attempting to take the American Federation of Labor (AFL) into an alliance with the People's party and defeated Samuel Gompers for the presidency of the AFL in 1894. The fusion of the of the Populists and Democrats in 1896 destroyed the coalition that Ohio trade unionists had built around the People's party. Although some of the state's unionists joined the Democrats, most Ohio trade unionists saw the fusion as a betrayal. Instead, they joined other political parties or de-emphasized political action. At the national level the AFL had been roughly divided between forces led by McBride wanting to transform the Federation into a partisan organization through an alliance with the People's party and forces led by Gompers feeling that the Federation should emphasize economic action. By leaving McBride and his allies without a party, the fusion undercut the political unionists and contributed to the triumph of Gompers and pure and simple unionism
