    Scope and Content

    This collection consists of White's seven union handbooks, his union traveling card and the By-Laws of the San Francisco chapter of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. The union handbooks contain the union constitution, which describes the objectives, roles of officers, modes of finance, methods of discipline, and other aspects of this AF of L affiliated union. In the last few pages of each book are spaces for stamps giving proof of the member's having paid his/her dues, and recording the member's name, local affiliation and transfer data.
