Katherine Pollack (b 1905) wrote this informative pamphlet in 1932--it is red though Ms. Pollack wasn't. She did have a solid and liberal background--Ethical Culture School in NYC, economics at Vassar, grad work at Columbia, "tutoring, teaching and writing for the Bryn Mawr Summer School for Women Workers (1927-49), Brookwood Labor College (1929-32)...field work in Southern textile mill towns and West Virginia coal camps..."1, and then on to national offices for the CIO and then the AFL-CIO.
I hate to say it, but I was drawn to the pamphlet for the design. It turns out that Ms. Pollack had the Right Stuff, and knew her business, and lived that life. I'm glad to have made her acquaintance.
The pamphlet was published by the Brookwood Labor College (1921-1937) evidently the first U.S. college devoted to the study of labor, and published in 1932.
