Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Daniel F. Buckley collection consists of 2.75 cubic feet of documents that span from 1938 to 1987, with the bulk of them dating from 1978 to 1980. Nearly all of the materials in the collection relate to the 1978 strike of the Sacramento Bee by the International Typographical Union, of which Dan Buckley was a member. The oversized materials are mostly newspapers with articles covering the strike's progress. Other oversized material includes posters and bumper stickers related to the strike. Series include Correspondence, California Democratic Party Convention (1979), Personal, Strike Materials, and Printed Materials.
Daniel F. Buckley was born in 1923 and lived in the Sacramento region throughout his life. He graduated from McClatchy High School in 1940 and became a newspaper printer, a profession which he continued for forty-seven years. At that time newspapers were not yet using computers or lasers to print their daily editions, so printers were necessary to type the articles, create the layouts, and work with heavy machinery.
2.75 linear feet (3 boxes)
