Subject: RE: the LITTLE RED SONGBOOK--I.W.W.
Hi Bonnie! Check out the book Roughneck. It is about Big Bill Haywood, one of the founders of our dear old OBU. When I was a younger wob, one of the oldest members of the NYC local had been a child wobblie during the famous Patterson Silk Workers Strike, and had danced with Big Bill, remembered hearing Tresca speak, and was at a rally in 1913 where James Connelly spoke, but does not remember him, as she was very young.
