Catalog Number: 
Book Rosemont
Date: 
2006
Abstract: 
Henry Rosemont, a printer and labor activist/historian, explores many crucial but little-known aspects of American labor history in this collection of his articles. America's First Strike covers the role of Benjamin Franklin in the Philadelphia printers' strike of 1786; his influence on organized labor; the early union printers' support for the abolition of slavery; their leadership in the U.S. labor movement overall; and other issues such as the problem of technology and important labor battles like the Haymarket affair of 1886, the 1938-40 Newspaper Guild strike, and the Chicago newspaper strike of 1947-49. Dave Roediger wrote the introduction, and former Chicago 5th Ward alderman Leon Despres contributed a note about Rosemont, who was a personal acquaintance.

Plans of Chicago

Catalog Number: 
Book Roche, R. Samuel
Date: 
2009
Edition: 
1st
Abstract: 
"In 'Plans of Chicago,' R. Samuel Roche and Aric Lasher investigate the 'Plan of Chicago' as a design strategy and a point of departure for a new regional planning approach. They illuminate it historical context through a discussion of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition and the 1901 McMillan Plan for Washington, DC, its primary antecedents. Comparing its priorities and strategies with those of earlier and later plans of Chicago -- including projects by Frederick Law Olmsted, Frank Lloyd Wright, Jens Jenson, and Ludwig Hilberseimer -- Roche and Lasher offer a new approach to regional planning that combines the strengths and objectives of these various plans of Chicago.'
