Biographical Note

Norman Leonard was a labor lawyer who primarily worked on union cases, naturalization and deportation trials, and civil rights trials in the 1930s through 1980s.
Norman Leonard was born on February 27th, 1914, to Sam Leonard and Anna Ghinger, in Bronx, New York. Leonard received early exposure to the trials of laborers due to his father, who was a garment worker. During the 1926 International Ladies Garment Worker’s (ILGWU) strike, Leonard’s family moved to Los Angeles, where he graduated from high school in 1929. While in high school he developed an interest in politics, which led him to enter University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1930 as a Political Science major.
Leonard’s time at UCLA marked his first major exposure to leftist ideals. He was influenced by two of his professors in particular – Fred Schuckman and Don Piatt, who interested Leonard in unemployment, the need for Social Security, and anti-ROTC campaigns. Leonard graduated from UCLA in 1934, at the same time as the San Francisco General Strike. After a short break from school, Leonard decided to pursue a graduate degree in International Relations. He received a scholarship to study at Columbia, and earned a Master of Arts degree in International Relations and International Law. Leonard then decided he would like to become a professor of International Law, and enrolled in Columbia Law School.
While at Columbia Law School, Leonard fell in love with Marjorie Friedman, a fellow law student. After a year of dating Leonard proposed, and the two were married. Marjorie later went on to assist the law firm with research for many landmark cases.
At this time Leonard also met Carol King, a lawyer who worked on immigration and naturalization law. Their friendship had a large influence on his career, and played a part in his decision in the 1950s to represent clients in naturalization and deportation cases. In his third year at law school, Leonard began searching New York for a job in a law firm, but without success. Carol King introduced Leonard to the Gladstein law firm in San Francisco, and by 1936 he was hired.
In Leonard’s first case with the law firm, he worked on the defense for Harry Bridges in a contempt case in connection with the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) and the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO). Leonard continued working on labor cases, and built a working relationship with Bridges that would last throughout his career.
When the United States became heavily involved in World War II in 1942, Leonard volunteered to be commissioned into the Navy. He served for two years as an ensign in Guadalcanal. Leonard was discharged from the Navy in 1945, and he returned with Marjorie to San Francisco, to practice with Gladstein.
From 1946-1948, Leonard represented the American Communications Association (ACA) in hearings before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). During this time, the Gladstein law firm continued representing Harry Bridges in deportation trials. In 1953, Leonard defended Bridges in his third and final denaturalization trial. Leonard acted as the primary court lawyer defending Bridges, and his defense led to the court ruling in favor of Bridges.
In addition to Bridges, Leonard represented many other people during the 1950s for naturalization and deportation cases, fighting to secure citizenship for immigrants and ex-communists. This also led to Leonard traveling to Los Angeles to work with the ACLU for several months defending local leaders of the Communist Party prosecuted under the Smith Act. The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) trials began in the 1940s and carried on to the 1950s, and due to Leonard’s opposition to the trials, he served as chairman for the San Francisco Committee Against HUAC. In connection with the HUAC trials, Leonard also defended clients who refused to take the California State Loyalty Oath.
In 1953, Leonard defended Shirley Kremen, who was arrested for harboring what the government termed “Communist fugitives.” The FBI’s search and seizure was ruled unlawful, in violation of the 4th and 5th amendment. The 1940s and 50s also mark the first case Leonard argued in front of the Supreme Court representing the Marine Cooks and Stewards (MCS) in a libel case. Later, a hearing came before the NLRB to put the MCS, Sailor’s Union of the Pacific (SUP), and the Marine Firemen’s Union (MFOW) into one union. Leonard argued that due to racial tensions, it was not possible to merge the MCS with other unions. Leonard also represented MC&S President Hugh Bryson, when he was convicted of perjury for signing an oath stating he was not a communist. In 1955, Bryson was sentenced to two years in prison. Leonard took the case to the Supreme Court in an attempt to have the felony removed from Bryson’s record, but the Supreme Court did not rule in his favor.
Leonard continued to defend members, ex-members, and suspected members of the Communist party throughout the 1950s. Among them was Archie Brown, a well-known member of the Communist party, and a member of the ILWU local 10. Under the Taft-Hartley Act, Brown was indicted for serving as an officer of the union while being a member of the Communist party. Leonard and the firm argued the case on the basis of constitutionally, however, the lower court decided they did not have the authority to debate the constitutionality of the law, and pronounced Archie Brown guilty in 1963.
In 1958 Leonard became a full partner in the law firm, with his fellow partners Gladstein, Andersen, and Sibbett. Leonard continued to argue cases for civil liberties and unions. In 1963 Leonard defended protestors from the Palace Hotel sit-in, specifically Tracy Sims. The sit-in focused on the lack of jobs for black workers and other minorities in San Francisco. The trial resulted in a signed agreement between Sims and the Palace Hotel that the hotel would employ more minorities. In 1964, shortly after the Tracy Sims case, Leonard represented students who were arrested at the Berkeley sit-ins. Notably, Leonard and the rest of the firm defended the students for six months without receiving any pay.
In 1969, Leonard represented San Francisco State Students from the Third World Liberation Front, arrested during a protest for trespassing and failing to disperse. This case also led to the Supreme Court, as the lower court refused to give the students a copy of their trial transcripts without paying for them. The Supreme Court overturned the lower court’s decision, which led to the case’s dismissal.
Around the same time, Leonard was defending conscientious objectors who refused to participate in the Vietnam War, many of whom were also students. In response to this issue, Aubrey Grossman organized a panel of lawyers to represent conscientious objectors, recognized by the federal courts in San Francisco. Leonard’s wife, Marjorie, served as secretary of the panel. The panel cooperated together on research and experience to defend their clients.
In 1963, Leonard was part of the representation team for the Williams trial, which came to be known as the B-Men trial. The case centered on issues of deregistration and perceived racial disparities within the ILWU. In the late 1960s, Leonard acted as a negotiator in arbitration for the ILWU’s containerization issue.
In connection with the immigration trials, in the early 1960s Leonard began defending gay and lesbian individuals who were targeted by the government because of their sexual orientation. The Naturalization and Immigration committee charged that an individual could be deported if they were found to have a “psychopathic personality,” and this was used against gay individuals as a reason to deport them. Leonard took on these cases as part of his naturalization and immigration work. Leonard also took on cases where gay bars were targeted in shut-downs by the California Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.
In the mid to late 70s Leonard assumed representation for the Masters, Mates & Pilots, and took on a consultant role to the firm as the years went by. He retired officially in 1986.
Norman Leonard passed away on March 7, 2006, at the age of 92. He was survived by his wife, Marjorie, and his two sons, Stephen and Eric.

Series 1:  Harry Bridges Case Files 1934-1972

Extent: 46.0 boxes

Biographical Note on Harry Bridges

Harry Bridges was born in Australia on July 28, 1901. He rejected the white-collar career planned by his middle-class parents and went to sea in 1917, shipping from American ports after 1920. Exposure to Australian socialism and his seafaring experiences produced a brief affiliation with the Industrial Workers of the World in the early 1920s. In 1922, he began to work as a longshoreman in San Francisco.
In 1933, San Francisco longshoremen formed a local of the International Longshoremen's Association (ILA). Bridges worked closely with Communist Party members to develop a militant longshore union with strong rank-and-file control. During the maritime and general strikes of 1934, he rose rapidly to leadership in the San Francisco local and the West Coast ILA. In 1937, Bridges led the West Coast ILA into the CIO as the ILWU, and he became ILWU president and CIO regional director.
From 1934 onward, business leaders, the press, and elected officials labelled Bridges a Red and urged deportation. He denied Party membership, but openly supported many Party positions. In 1939, a hearing produced no grounds for deportation, leading Congress to adopt new criteria. A second hearing went against Bridges. The Supreme Court reversed that decision and Bridges became a citizen in 1945. In 1949, Bridges was charged with lying regarding Communist Party membership during his naturalization proceedings. The Supreme Court ruled in his favor in 1955, federal attorneys pressed civil charges but they were dismissed.
In the 1950s, Bridges concluded that mechanization of longshore work was inevitable, and he led negotiations that produced the Mechanization and Modernization Agreement (M & M) in 1960. The ILWU accepted increased use of machinery on the docks; employers agreed to generous pensions, no lay-offs, and guaranteed pay, and also recognized ILWU jurisdiction over all the new machinery. Fortune called Bridges "the union leader who did best" for his members in 1960. A few ILWU members, especially communists, criticized the M & M for reducing the size and hence the political clout of the ILWU, producing a short-lived rift between Bridges and the Party.
During his later years, Bridges was hailed as a "labor statesman," and was appointed to a City Charter Revision Commission in 1968 and to the San Francisco Port Commission in 1970. He retired as ILWU president in 1977. In 1988, Bridges gave his blessing to ILWU affiliation with the AFL-CIO.

Scope and Contents

Leonard was a member of the law firm that defended Harry Bridges during his legal battles. It consists of four types of materials: case files, bound volumes of trial transcripts, an extensive card file index that also provides a name index to the Communist Party newspapers, the Western Worker and its successor, The People's Daily World, and various miscellaneous items.
The case files include a variety of legal documents such as affidavits, depositions, witness files, briefs, motions, exhibits, and reports. Documents are ordered according to a numbering system set up by the law firm. There are two major divisions of the case files: the "Deportation" subseries and the "Denaturalization and Deportation" subseries. There is also a miscellaneous subseries composed mainly of unindexed documents, and "Other cases" a subseries comprising additional cases other than deportation and denaturalization.
The collection also includes bound volumes of two different trials: The Bridges Second Trial, Books 1 - 7 (volumes 1-44); and the Bridges-Roberton-Schmidt Trial, Books 1 - 17 (volumes 5-83), which include the Pretrial, Jury Selection and Opening Statements (volumes 1-5). Books 10 - 12 are missing. Trial transcripts from the first Bridges' deportation hearings are available at the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Law Library.
The Bridges' defense team engaged in an extensive amount of investigative work during the twenty years Harry Bridges was on trial. The collection of a large alphabetical index includes several thousand cards of names, articles, and union or group meetings that had any bearing on the Bridges' cases. Each card is identified with a number or code. Merle Richmond, one of the legal secretaries in the law firm, was responsible for the index. After her arrival at the law firm in 1940, Richard Gladstein designated Richmond as his chief assistant in organizing the vast amounts of background material that came to the law firm as the Bridges' cases developed. Elinor Kahn and Marjorie Leonard were also involved with the investigative work.

Scope and Contents

Consists of documents on the early deportation trials of the 1930s to 1944. Includes correspondence, news clippings, investigative reports, and photocopies of reports and correspondence from police files on radical activities. Of special note is the Harper Knowles correspondence (Box 1), some of which was provided to the law firm by a janitor in the Veteran's Building, who assisted the defense by bringing them materials from Knowles' office during the night, allowing them to photocopy them, then returning them before morning. Pieced together scraps from the wastebasket symbolize the thorough nature of defense documentation.

History of Bridges' Deportation and Denaturalization Trials

Bridges faced four major trials over a twenty year period. The first phase lasted from 1934 to 1940 under the auspices of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), then part of the Department of Labor. The second phase of legal activity was from 1940-1945, after the INS was put under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice. The third phase, 1948-1955, consisted of two trials, one criminal and one civil, in which the government attempted to denaturalize Bridges.
1934-1939: In 1934, two weeks after the San Francisco longshore strike began, the White House received complaints about Bridges as "a professional labor agitator from Australia." The INS was ordered to secure a field report on Bridges from the San Francisco office. The first INS investigations produced no basis for action against Bridges, but demands for Bridges' deportation continued to flow into the INS and the Department of Labor, resulting in an INS hearing in 1939.
Landis Hearing, 1939-1940: Frances Perkins, Secretary of the Department of Labor, selected James M. Landis, Dean of the Harvard Law School, to preside over the hearing. Dean Landis opened the hearing on July 10, 1939, on Angel Island, San Francisco headquarters for the INS. The proceeding, covering forty-five days of testimony, lasted until September 14. Landis submitted a report to Secretary Perkins in December, which found in favor of Bridges. Perkins approved Landis's report and dismissed the proceedings on January 8, 1940. The reaction to the Landis report was unfavorable. On June 13, 1940, the House of Representatives passed the Alien Bill, specifically calling for Bridges' deportation. In the Senate, a section was added to the then pending Alien Registration Bill (eventually to be known as the Smith Act) that made it unlawful for a resident alien at any time to belong to a group advocating the violent overthrow of the government. At the same time, Congress transferred the INS to the Justice Department.
Sears Hearing and Appeals, 1941-1945: In 1941, the Justice Department began a new hearing in San Francisco under Judge Charles Sears, a retired judge of the New York Court of Appeals. After hearing forty-four days of testimony between March 31 and June 12, Sears ruled that Bridges was deportable on the grounds that his cooperation with Communist-front groups and his sympathetic attitude toward Communist-sponsored programs and policies formed a consistent pattern of affiliation with the Communist Party. However, Justice Department procedures provided for a review of Sears' ruling by the Board of Immigration Appeals. This board overruled Sears' judgment and unanimously recommended in January 1942 that the warrant for Bridges' deportation be canceled.
In May 1942, Attorney General Francis Biddle, disagreeing with the Board of Immigration, issued a deportation order. Bridges immediately appealed the deportation order to the courts. The Circuit Court of Appeals denied Bridges' appeal late in June 1944, but a year later, the Supreme Court overruled Biddle and found in favor of Bridges.
The Supreme Court decision cleared the way for Bridges to secure citizenship. On August 8, 1945, Bridges was naturalized as a US citizen, with J.R. Robertson and Henry Schmidt as witnesses. During these proceedings, Bridges formally denied belonging to the Communist Party. Robertson and Schmidt supported his application by vouching for his good character.
Criminal Conspiracy Case, 1948-1955: As a citizen, Harry Bridges was as controversial as ever. His public opposition to the Truman Doctrine and the Marshall Plan, his support for Henry Wallace in the 1948 presidential election, and his later criticism of the Korean War made him suspect as a Communist sympathizer. In 1948, the INS launched an investigation to determine whether there was any possibility of revoking Bridges' citizenship. In 1949, the government charged that Bridges had perjured himself at his naturalization hearing, and that his union friends had knowingly lied when they had vouched for him. A grand jury indicted Bridges, Robertson, and Schmidt for perjury and for having engaged in a criminal conspiracy to secure Harry Bridges' naturalization fraudulently. The defendants sought a dismissal of the charges on several grounds. Two key government witnesses were Mervyn Rathborne and John Shomaker, former intimates of Bridges in union affairs in the 1930s. Both claimed to have belonged to the Communist Party. As the investigation continued, Bridges' attorneys raised the question of whether the three-year statute of limitations applied to this case. A trial lasting from November 1949 to April 1950 found the defendants guilty of both fraud and conspiracy. Bridges received concurrent sentences of two and five years; Robertson and Schmidt were also convicted.
On the same day in May 1949 that the grand jury had returned a criminal indictment against Bridges, the government filed a civil suit to cancel his naturalization on the ground that it had been fraudulently secured. However, all civil proceedings were stayed pending the result of the criminal trial. Following Bridges' conviction in April, on June 20, 1950, Judge George Harris, who presided at the jury trial, voided Bridges' naturalization papers based on the criminal conviction. On August 5, 1950, after Bridges spoke out at a union meeting to urge an end to the Korean War, Judge Harris revoked Bridges' bail and ordered Bridges jailed immediately. However, bail was restored after Bridges spent 21 days in jail. The Court of Appeals heard Bridges' trial appeal and unanimously upheld the conviction in September 1952. In 1953, the Supreme Court overruled both decisions on the grounds that the statute of limitations prevented the government from instituting criminal proceedings against Bridges for his alleged fraud in acquiring citizenship. At the same time, the Court restored Bridges' citizenship.
Civil Conspiracy Case, 1955: The civil proceedings, stayed by Judge Harris while the criminal case was going on, were once again put forward. When the Supreme Court reversed the conviction in 1953, it also handed down a separate ruling reversing the order on denaturalization. But within a month the general council for the INS was ready with a report recommending that the civil case be reactivated and brought to trial. The trial in San Francisco before Judge Louis Goodman lasted from June 20 to July 22, 1955. The government's civil action largely followed the pattern of the 1949 criminal trial. However, this time Goodman found in favor of Bridges by concluding that the government had failed to prove its case.

Subseries 1.2:  Denaturalization and Deportation Trials 1934-1952

Extent: 8 boxes

Scope and Contents

Documents of the later denaturalization and deportation trials of the late 1940s and mid-1950s, involving a criminal and a civil case. Many of these documents are from an earlier period of the 1930s, evidently reused and reorganized by the law firm since they have been stamped and dated with a later date. These files include grand jury proceedings, affidavits, depositions, minutes, correspondence, memos and news clippings. There are witness files of Mervyn Rathborne, Ivan Cox, James Ferguson, and Lee Holman, among others. Also included is CIO correspondence, memos and telegrams. An index (13/30) lists the contents of each document in Box/Folder 13/04 through 15/06. Box 17 includes Mervyn Rathborne's correspondence, and photocopies of newspaper articles detailing Michael Quill's union activities in New York, marked with a different numbering system. The few photographs found among the old and new documents have been moved to the Photograph Collection of the Labor Archives.

Subseries 2.3:  Food, Tobacco, Agricultural and Allied Workers of America (FTA); United Cannery, Agricultural, Packing and Allied Workers of America (UCAPAWA) 1936-1952

Administrative History

While the United Cannery, Agricultural, Packing and Allied Workers of America (UCAPAWA) and its successor union, the Food, Tobacco, Agricultural and Allied Workers of America (FTA) was only in existence between 1937 and 1951, it attracted much attention first as one of the most quickly growing of the new CIO unions, and latter as one of several unions expelled from the CIO during the 1950 anti-communist "trials." A focus of FTA's organizing drive was the canneries, packing sheds and in the fields of California.
California agriculture in the 1930s was marked by a greater and greater concentration of land and food processing facilities in the hands of large corporations. Growers, shippers, processors and canners were organized in various ways to protect and promote their mutual interests. Some of these organizations were simply grower cooperatives which allowed members to obtain everything from seed to tractor tires at a discount. Others, such as the Grower-Shipper Vegetable Association of Central California (GSA), and the California Packers and Growers (CP & G), were dominated by large growers, shipping companies, or canneries. Typically, such organizations had ties to other pro-business groups and large corporations (such as the Industrial Association of San Francisco, Pacific Gas and Electric (PG & E), Bank of America and others). One of the chief aims of these organizations would be to obstruct union organizing among their members' employees. The strikes at Salinas (1936) and Stockton (1937) exemplify the tactics of employer associations: the fostering of the Associated Farmers, the establishment of local "Citizen's Committees" in cooperation with anti-union Chambers of Commerce, the use of professional public relations consultants, the pooling of resources and profits during strikes, and a strong determination to crush all independent union activity.1
UCAPAWA/FTA also faced the difficult task of overcoming the competing forces of the hostile State Federation of Labor and even conservatives within the CIO. The State Federation of Labor would become an important ally of employers in its effort to head off any success by the industrial based CIO. Throughout its lifetime, FTA would find its strength sapped by rival AFL unions, some of which achieved closed shops with the help of employers. AS for the CIO, FTA would eventually prove too much of a political liability. In the "conform or get out" push, FTA and other unions came under intense pressure to shed left wing elements from their leadership. In 1950, the FTA was expelled from the CIO.2

The 1936 Salinas Strike, and FTA Local 78

On the eve of the "Battle of Salinas," the Salinas-Watsonville area produced 90% of all lettuce eaten in the U.S. Organizing work among packing shed workers had been going on for several years. In 1932, the Vegetable Packers' Association, Local 18211 was formed, but made little progress. In 1935, the AFL chartered the Fruit and Vegetable Workers' Union (F & VWU), Local 18211 which, after a strike in which two workers were killed, won a one-year contract from the GSA.3 Negotiations for a new contract were carried on over the summer of 1936. However, the GSA had little desire to reach an agreement. Plans had already been made to break the union, and as the September 1st deadline passed, and the union voted to continue work under the terms of the 1935 contract, the GSA posted in members' sheds a new contract with lower wages. The GSA claimed this contract would be in force for one year should employees work under it. This resulted in a walk-out by approximately 3,500 workers.4
Having laid the public relations ground work for an anti-union campaign through the Citizen's Association of the Salinas Valley (funded by the GSA, PG & E, Spreckels Sugar Co., local banks and businessmen), the GSA moved to crush the strike. Union leaders were denounced as communists, and a "citizen's army" of 1,000 was mobilized with the help of the Associated Farmers, deputized by the Sheriff and armed with clubs and tear-gas bombs. Meanwhile, all packing and shipping activities were consolidated at the Salinas Valley Ice Company, which was deemed to be easily defendable from striking workers. Guards with machine guns kept watch over high fences, while inside scabs packed lettuce, and slept and ate in train cars provided by the Southern Pacific Railroad. All costs and all profits were pooled among the membership. Violence erupted, and the strike was put down with a degree of violence which the NLRB deemed, "in many instances bordering on sadism."
In the midst of the strike, the union and workers were abandoned by the chairman of the State Federation of Labor, Edward Vandeleur. Vandeleur had been contacted before the strike by the GSVA's public relations consultant, and siding against Local 18211 (accusing them of being communists), pulled the union's legal representative out of the Salinas area at the height of the crisis. This is probably when the union retained Richard Gladstein's San Francisco law office, perhaps through the ILWU. Later, with the help of the Growers, Vandeleur set up a rival local and revoked Local 18211's AFL charter. The issue of "company unions" would be an important aspect of the legal battles after Salinas and would become a pattern throughout northern California.
After the strike, the GSA took steps to exclude union organizers from work. To this end, they continued the use of a centralized hiring hall and a blacklist.5 As workers were hired back after the strike, preference was given to those who owed money in town, had dependents or could in some way be more easily coerced. The union, having been abandoned in the midst of the strike by the chairman of the State Federation of Labor, continued organizational work, and in 1937 changed its affiliation to the new United Cannery, Agricultural, Packing and Allied Workers of America (UCAPAWA-CIO), as UCAPAWA Local 78. Its jurisdiction included the Salinas-Watsonville area, the Imperial Valley, and the Salt River Valley of Arizona. In 1944, this local became FTA Local 78.6
Charges of communist influence, and the rivalry between the AFL and the CIO would be dominant issues in the life of Local 78. In 1948, the local (with a membership of 10,000) successfully fought off a Teamsters raid lead by expelled Local 78 president, Holman Day. The Teamsters raids created much bitterness between the FTA and the CIO, as the CIO offered little aid to the FTA, and many accused CIO officials of openly helping Day in an attempt to get rid of the left-leaning FTA.7 In 1950 the CIO expelled the FTA for "following the purpose and program of the communist party."8 The FTA International, and Local 78, merged with two other unions to become the Distributive, Processing and Office Workers of America (DPOWA). In the fall of 1950, the CIO mounted a successful raid on Local 78 and won an NLRB election to become the bargaining agent for the territory of Local 78.9

The Stockton Cannery Strike of 1937 and FTA Local 7

The events in Stockton during April 1937 follow a similar pattern to those of Salinas and could be considered the perfection of the "Salinas Plan." The Agricultural Workers' Union-AFL, Local 20211, was organized with the help of the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union-AFL (ILWU) and was given jurisdiction over all of northern California's canneries.10 In Stockton, as in Salinas, the key issues for the union were collective bargaining, preferential hiring of union members, and an end to anti-union discrimination in hiring, as well as wages and working conditions. The AWU claimed a membership of 567 out of 1,400 cannery workers in the area. At the Stockton Food Products plant, however, the union claimed 360 of 450 workers as members. While the union hoped for modest gains in this plant alone, the powerful California Processers and Growers (CP & G) moved to eliminate unionism from northern California canneries in general.11
Following the pattern laid down in Salinas, CP & G with the help of the Merchants, Manufacturers and Employers Association (MMEA) of Stockton, established a citizen's committee which sent letters to local growers and merchants warning that Longshoremen and Communist pickets were coming to beat up local workers and farmers. Violence at the Stockton Food Products plant flared as the company tried to drive non-striking workers through the picket line and into the plant. This precipitated the calling up of a "Pick-handle Army" by the Sheriff. Approximately 1,200 men were recruited, organized along military lines, and armed with pick handles. This organizing work was done by Colonel Walter Garrison, prominent anti-communist and founder of the Associated Farmers of San Joaquin County. The union attempted conciliation, but workers were forced into a provocative situation by the canners. Violence flared again as workers prepared to go back to work, and the strike was broken.
Organizing in the Stockton area continued under UCAPAWA/FTA Local 7, and faced similar problems (company-sponsored unions, Teamster raids, the hostility of conservatives within the CIO) as those which eventually defeated FTA Local 78. The cannery drive of 1945 was marginally successful against the Teamster-CP & G alliance, and in the late 1940s the union began to organize asparagus cutters.12 Workers in the asparagus fields were mostly Filipino immigrants who traveled between the fields around Stockton, and the canneries of the Alaska salmon industry (salmon cannery workers were known as Alaskeros).13
Richard Gladstein's law firm represented Local 7 in the legal battles arising from the 1937 Stockton Strike and many cases arising from the 1948 strike of asparagus cutters. The issues of these cases involved such things as 1) housing conditions for field workers; 2) the system of holding back part of workers pay until the harvest is over; and 3) violations of union members' right to picket. It is also possible that the law offices were involved in the defense of Local 7 officials under threat of deportation for alleged communist activities or sympathies. However, these cases are not represented in the FTA collection.
When the FTA was expelled from the CIO, Local 7, unlike Local 78, joined the ILWU as the Cannery Workers and Farm Laborers Union Local 7-C. Soon the union became ILWU Local 37. The changes in union name did not reflect changes in personnel.

Arrangement

The files in this collection have been divided as closely as possible by the numbering system used by the law offices. Generally speaking, this system assigns a four-digit number (e.g. 2015) to each client. Ascending numbers then are added after a decimal point (2015.00; 2015.01; 2015.02, etc.) Successive folders pertaining to the same case or litigant are indicated in different ways. For example, three folders on Stockton AWU Local 20211 are number 2015.09, 2015.091, and 2015.092. A series of folders on the NLRB cases arising from the Salinas strike and blacklist, however, are numbered 2015.152, 2015.152 B, 2015.152 C, and so on. Furthermore, when UCAPAWA changed to FTA in 1944 it received the number 2013. The several series pertaining to FTA Local 7 between 1948 and 1952 are numbered with the following system: 2013.02, 2013.02-1, 2013.02-2. In this case, the two digits to the right of the decimal indicate a case or group of cases pertaining to one client, or litigant, and the number to the right of the cash represents that folder's place in a consecutive series. For instance, in the example used above, "2013" indicates FTA, ".02" indicates Eviction Cases, and "-1," being the second folder (after 2013.02) happens to be a General File. Original folder numbers are listed with folder titles in the box listing, as well as on the folders themselves.
Folders were placed in order following the original numbering system and then divided into series, by union local (client) or case. In addition, sections of relating folders were created.

Separated Materials

Oversize items have been relocated to the Labor Archives and Research Center (LARC) Oversize Collection. Of particular interest is a strike poster from the Salinas-Watsonville area protesting unfair labor practices (1936 or 1937). Photographs have been removed to the Leonard Collection Photographs Box (Photograph Collection #11). These photographs document unfair employer practices, violence against labor leaders, and living conditions of migrant farm workers.

Scope and Contents

The ten boxes of records pertaining to the Food, Tobacco, Agricultural and Allied Workers of America (FTA), the United Cannery, Agricultural, Packing and Allied Workers of America (UCAPAWA), and various cannery and packing shed workers' unions in northern California reflect the activity of the law firm of Gladstein, Grossman and Margolis, in which Norman Leonard later became a partner. It is very likely that the original contact between the law firm and the agricultural unions was made through the ILWU. Material in this collection includes correspondence, union organizing material, news clippings, and legal documents (memorandums, affidavits, evidence, decisions, etc.) from various courts and the National Labor Relations Board. Among early material relating indirectly to agricultural unions is the file Anti-Picketing Law Cases. These two cases, particularly the Fels case (258/3), document the effort to aid union organization by challenging obstructive legislation. Additionally, NLRB correspondence (258/1) shows that Gladstein, Grossman and Margolis hoped to influence Board decisions on cases of indirect importance to their clients.
The largest file, United Cannery, Agricultural, Packing and Allied Workers of America material, represents the period 1936-1944. UCAPAWA District 2 covered California, Hawaii and Arizona, and documents relating to the district office can be found in folders 258/5-8. Letters documenting workers' opinions of various New Deal Programs, as well as routine correspondence are in these files. A two-page document, "The History of UCAPAWA in California," is also of interest.
Of interest to those researching AFL-CIO rivalry in the 1930s and 1940s is the file on Company Union Cases (258/6-259/4). Legal documents, including 2 copies of the NLRB decision, relate in some detail the set up of AFL unions, aided by growers and packers, in an attempt to head off a successful CIO drive.
Day-by-day histories of the Stockton Strike of 1937 can be found in folder 259/2. Evidence of employer influence in favor of the rival AFL local is found in a pamphlet sent to employees by Cal-Pak, the largest canning company in California. Included is a ballot card for upcoming elections, with suggestions for voting. A program for the "Cannery Workers Dance" is of special interest. The dance was put on by the company-sponsored local, and the program includes an annotated guest list which documents employer influence on the rival AFL union in Stockton. Folder also contains correspondence between Gladstein and Donal Henderson, President of UCAPAWA, concerning the Stockton situation, and evidence used in the Company Union Cases, including information on the AFL-CIO rivalry in San Jose. Folder 260/3 includes communications between Grossman in Stockton working on the Cannery Strike, and Gladstein in Salinas working on the NLRB case. The challenge of the AFL-Company-sponsored unions to UCAPAWA also is documented in the folders pertaining to UCAPAWA, Stockton (260/3-8).
Files pertaining to various UCAPAWA locals in Northern California show the similarity of challenges facing CIO organizers throughout the region. One of the biggest problems facing UCAPAWA seems to have been anti-CIO hiring practices. Of interest within this series are documents relating to the Committee to Aid Agricultural Organization, whose sponsor was John Steinbeck (260/12). The Committee brought the support of California's artistic and film community to the cause of farm workers. Removed from this folder were several photographs of migrant worker camps at an uncertain location. Also of interest are photographs of Faustino Oritz, leader of a strike by pickle packers in Hayward (206/6). These two photographs document the beating that he received at the hands of sheriff's deputies. Accompanying documents explain the circumstances of this event.
A large series pertains to UCAPAWA Salinas, Local 78. Subjects include contract negotiations (260/9), cases arising from the 1936 Salinas strike, and various legal and NLRB cases. Information on the 1936 court injunction against the GSA (261/1), as well as correspondence are found in folders (261/2-3). Insights into living conditions of packing-shed workers in this era can be found on the many "Back Pay Questionnaires" (261/5-6) These were used to assess claims for back pay under the NLRB order of 1939 and include notes on earning, injuries and other life conditions. Information on wages in the industry can be found in folder 263/3. Folder 263/5 contains lists of names and addresses of workers in the Salinas-Watsonville area in 1936.
Affidavits relating to the 1936 Salinas Strike, and the GSA blacklist of union members (263/6) are of interest both for factual data and for workers' attitudes. A group of folders (264/4-265/4) titled "Unemployment Insurance," concerns Gladstein, Grossman and Margolis' representation of union member who were refused unemployment insurance. The folders "appeals denied" (264/7-8), and "appeals approved" (264/9) also contains information on workers' lives. Folders 263/6-7 contain a variety of evidence from the 1936 Salinas Strike, including a worker identification card used by the GSA Hiring Hall, correspondence, union bulletins, and other evidence of illegal GSA hiring practices. Relocated from this file were: a 1935 contract offer from GSA to the union (moved to Oversize); photographs documenting illegal GSA hiring practices, and anti-union sentiment (to Leonard Photographs); and a strike poster (to Oversize).
Other folders under District 2 include items relating to sub-locals throughout California and Arizona. This includes an anti-picketing case, Rassmussen vs. Superior Court (265/7), attempts by UCAPAWA to take over an inactive Teamsters local in Arizona, as well as an early (1943) if abortive attempt to challenge race discrimination in Fresno (265/5). Also notable is one folder on the legal definition of agricultural labor (259/4).
Folders pertaining to FTA Local 7 in Stockton, and in particular cases arising from the 1948 Asparagus Cutters' Strike, are divided into sections, including General, Cabebe v. Souza, Eviction Cases, Criminal Cases, and Hold Back Cases (Cabrera v. Western Farms Co.). Materials include affidavits, memorandums, stipulations, agreements, decisions and correspondence. The general file for each section contains correspondence between lawyer Lloyd McMurry and Local 7. In this correspondence McMurry outlines the important issues in each case. Many correspondence are given over to the question of paying the lawyers. Folder 4/16 under Eviction Cases contains listings of personal property lost by workers when they were evicted from grower-owned housing during the strike of 1948.
Folder 265/11 briefly documents the difficulties faced by FTA locals shortly before, as well as after expulsion from the CIO in January 1950. Correspondence and other items from the 1950 NLRB election in Salinas can be found there.
