The earliest item is the pamphlet, "The Pullman Strike," by Rev. William H. Carwardine, 1894. The most contemporary is the minutes of the Twenty-Second Constitutional Convention of the Industrial Workers of the World, Chicago, Nov. 9-16, 1936.
Peo Monoldi was born in Naples, Italy. He immigrated to this country and became an active member of the Industrial Workers of the World while living in Chicago, Montana and in California.The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) was founded in 1905 in Chicago, Illinois and was the first racially integrated union in the United States. IWW workers, also known as Wobblies, have organized across the textile, longshore, agriculture, and mining industries, organizing socialist and anarchist syndicates. Representing 9,000 workers in North America, the IWW seeks to empower the working class to seize "the means of production, abolish the wage system, and live in harmony with the earth."
