A history of labor in Columbus, Ohio, 1812-1992 by Warren R Van Tine( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the building and printing industries flourished in pre-Civil War Columbus, manufacturing languished. The manufacturing base grew and diversified from 1820 to 1850. Few unions emerged, and those that did seldom lasted long. During the Civil War business and manufacturing increased to serve the camps and prisons established in Columbus. When the war ended, Columbus's workers launched the first concerted effort to build a labor movement. In August 1869 the arrival of the first train of the Hocking Valley Railroad introduced a new chapter in the city's industrial history. By World War I, industry had migrated out of the downtown area. Workers were excluded from a major say in city affairs, confined to overcrowded and inadequately served neighborhoods, and trapped in low-paying, dirty, demanding jobs. The characteristic pattern of the labor movement until the 1930s emerged: workers unionized during prosperity and retreated with recessions. World War I stimulated the economy; peace brought a depression. But because of the city's diverse economic base, it did not feel the depression as severely as other locations; nor did it experience the prosperity of the 1920s to the same degree as other communities; hence, increasingly, the word "moderate" described all national trends as they applied to Columbus. World War ii had the greatest impact upon Columbus's labor movement. Public employment doubled, and the manufacturing sector expanded dramatically. Curtiss-Wright's air force factory work force was unionized shortly after it began production in 1941. For the past 2 decades, the challenge for organized labor in central Ohio has been to launch new initiatives in the face of a dramatically changing social and economic environment.

Mayoral politics and new deal political culture : James Rhodes and the African-American voting bloc in Columbus, Ohio, 1943-1951 by William Russell Coil( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This thesis discusses the impact of New Deal political culture on Columbus, Ohio in the 1940s. The case study involves the political relationship of James Rhodes, Republican mayor of Columbus from 1944 - 1952, and the African-American voting bloc. This study finds that Rhodes' political style and policy agenda converged with the interests and methods of the black community, facilitating a mutually beneficial alliance. Both Rhodes and blacks advocated policies that centered on themes of strengthening the home and the community and embraced New Deal political culture, a style based on pluralism and organizational activity. This story is useful to tell because it suggests that the shift in black voter's loyalty from the party of Lincoln to the party of Franklin Roosevelt occurred neither uniformly nor monolithically, foreshadows changes that occur in the Republican party because of the New Deal, describes a convergence of long term structural patterns with distinct personalities and ideologies that created a fleeting moment of middle ground between blacks and whites, and, finally, illustrates the limits of local public power to address systemic racial problems
The Black radical intellectual and the Black worker : the emergence of a program for Black labor, 1918-1938 by Keith P Griffler( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The dissertation traces the rise and collapse of a movement for Black liberation in the 1920s and 1930s that profoundly affected the course of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. The dissertation centers on a group of African-American intellectuals and activists, led by Abram Harris, John P. Davis, and Ralph Bunche, who coalesced around a program for organizing Black workers into trade unions as the vehicle to transform the American economic structure oppressing African Americans. The study of African-American intellectual history of the 1920s and 1930s corrects previous scholarship by demonstrating that African Americans initiated the Black-labor alliance, rather than organized labor, as has been unanimously maintained
The rise, dominance, and passing of Chinese American supermarkets in northern California, 1930s-1970s by Alfred Yee( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Chinese American operators' greatest edge was their cheap labor, allowing them to sell merchandise at low cost and to reap huge profits. Cheap labor was based on traditional Chinese employment practices in which employees were expected to work long hours. This practice was reinforced by the sense of mutual responsibility and ethnic solidarity among employers and employees
A quest for self-determination : the African Methodist Episcopal Church during the age of imperialism, 1884-1916 by Lawrence S Little( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Aided by official AME publications, minutes, and records as well as a wealth of secondary sources, this study examines the responses and actions of the highly political, confident, and outspoken AME clergy and influential lay people to American, European, and Asian imperialism and related international event and issues. As international spokespersons of color, many of the women and men of the AME sought to gain and preserve the autonomy of indigenous and oppressed people across the globe from the Philippines to Ireland to South Africa. Moreover, they sought to overturn the prevalent racial theories and pseudo sciences that confirmed white supremacy on the basis of the supposed inferiority of people of color. In doing so, they maintained a firm belief in western, especially American and Christian, principles of liberty and equality, often leading to conflicts, contradictions, paradoxes, and dilemmas for AME members. Nevertheless, they continuously expressed a cosmopolitan outlook that was concerned with the future of the world and their place in that future
Raising the moral conscience : the Atlantic Movement for African-American Civil Rights, 1833-1919 by Allison J Gough( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study argues, contrary to previous scholarship, that this Atlantic movement continued after the Civil War in the hands of groups that scholars have hitherto neglected. Reexamination of the ante-bellum Atlantic movement reveals that women and African-Americans in particular were important in sustaining trans-Atlantic activism and that the goals and tactics they utilized in the early nineteenth century dominated the freedmen's rights campaign in the late nineteenth century. While this latter campaign never reached the heights of the ante-bellum crusade, organizations in the later period functioned as abeyance structures until the climate for reform became more supportive to their efforts
"The wrongs that are born and suffered in silence" : sexual assault and legal fraternity in nineteenth century Ohio by Siri Briggs Brown( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study is an examination of the socio-legal dynamics surrounding the charge and prosecution of rape and other sex crimes in nineteenth-century Ohio's legal fraternity. The goal is to document the impact of gender and race assumptions upon the women who brought forth charges, the structure and power of the male dominated legal system, changing definitions of the crime, rules of evidence, the experiences of women in court, state supreme court decisions on sexually related crimes, the prosecution, sentencing, and release rate of offenders, and the impact of the efforts of moral reformers and individual women who desired to create more protective legislation. The numerous legal documents cases, and statutes examined are contextualized within broader social, political, and economic forces at work throughout the century that influenced the developing legal system in the emerging state of Ohio in ways that affected the experiences of both men and women in court. As the nation entered the “market revolution” the basic function of law transformed. In colonial America the primary emphasis of law was the protection of morality, by the early nineteenth century, however, the primary emphasis of law became the protection of property, goods, and capital gain. The prosecution of rape, once considered a moral crime deserving severe punishment now lost prosecutorial precedence to economically based crimes like theft, burglary and forgery. In the newly admitted state of Ohio (1803) this shift in the function of law began early in the state's history and continued until well into the 1800s. What complicated matters were the severely overcrowded state penitentiary and saturated court system. The result was the early release of convicted offenders, and a legal system that was forced to decide what crimes were the most important to prosecute, and ensure proper punishment. Rape, a crime suffered primarily by women but defined, judged and sentenced by male legal authority lost importance throughout the course of this dynamic century. Punishments for rape were reduced, convicted sex offenders were pardoned at a higher rate than other offenders, and state Supreme Court Justices overturned convictions made in the lower courts. By the end of the century, however, issues of morality and the legal protection of women reemerged by the efforts of moral reformers and new legislation was written. Within this context, what at first appears to be a very intimate crime between two (or more) individuals results in a very complex interaction involving litigants, juries, witnesses, courtroom officials, high-level state officials, and the local community who anxiously came to view the drama at hand
"Work or fight" : federal labor policy and the First World War, 1913-1920 by Eric J Karolak( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation examines the first federal labor policy in American history. It concentrates on the programs devised by policymakers during the World War I era. It argues that labor policymakers fashioned a set of "soft" labor policies separate from hard-nosed dispute resolution. While mediation aimed to resolve conflict, soft labor policy sought to prevent it
Cooperation, conciliation, and continuity : the evolution of a modern grievence procedure in the Columbus typographical union no. 5, 1859-1959 by Howard Rick Stanger( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During the second period, 1903 to 1939, collective bargaining altered the practice of industrial relations. However, despite contractual bargaining and procedures for the joint resolution of disputes, the local maintained virtual control over the process. On rare occasions when the parties invoked joint procedures, conciliation governed final outcomes. After 1904 ITU officers, acting as an arbitration board, decided cases within the union's internal structure. Written decisions became part of a common law governing union typographers. A system of peer review of grievances developed around 1910 to provide printers with a degree of industrial democracy. Peer review complemented the ITU's famous internal union democracy
Elderly slaves of the plantation South by Stacey K Close( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The lives of the aged slaves in the antebellum South revealed a mosaic of complex and unique personalities. The image of the Uncle Remus, storytelling old slave, and that of the contented Uncle Tom did not apply totally to the elderly men of the slave community and neither did the concept of the totally Eurocentric old mammy. The elderly slaves contributed substantially to the creation and perpetuation of the African American slave community through such things as childcare, storytelling, health care, procuring food, and religious leadership while also aiding their masters in the operation of the plantation. The subsequent incapacitation of the old people became problematic economically, socially, and medically for many masters; however, such things as manumission and slave trading solved many of these problems. The worlds of the old female and old male slaves were in many ways quite similar. Certainly, both old male and female slaves would toil in the fields of the antebellum South with equal strain. However, the world of slave women allowed for the development of close interpersonal relationships with younger slave women throughout the day in the drop shot gangs. The childcare duties of the old female slaves held them closer to the plantation homes than those of the elderly male slaves. Old age produced for many old women a bastion of new found respect and worth. The medicinal talents and culinary abilities granted these women a special place in the hearts of other bondsmen and bondwomen. At times elderly female and male slaves lost a great amount of self-esteem because they were displaced by younger, stronger, and talented slaves. Nevertheless, their actions kept the generations together
