Mark Ross Joe Hill died 1915 (24) RE: Joe Hill died 1915 24 Mar 15

The Industrial Workers of the World are sponsoring events all around the USA to commemorate Joe Hill. You can find more info here at this Facebook page;

Joe Hill at 100 Roadshow

Incidentally, I ran the IWW office in Missoula, Montana in the '80's. When it came to light that some of Joe's ashes were still in the hands of the Feds, the union put in a request for their return. They gave us the ashes, but wouldn't give us the envelope (it had writing on it, and the National Archives is charged with the preservation of information).

I put in a request for the a prtion to use in ceremonies around Montana, spreading them on the Clark Fork River with Earth First!, and sprinkling some on Frank Little's grave in Butte. But before that both Utah Phillips and I purloined a couple of grains each and place them in our guitars.
When I sent my handmade guitar back to the maker for a neck reset, I had to ask him not to vacuum out the box!
