Strikes! Labor and Labor History in Puget Sound

The University of Washington's Center for Labor Studies, Henry Art Gallery, and University libraries have teamed up to create this wonderful online exhibit "to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Seattle General Strike of 1919 and the 65th anniversary of the Maritime Strikes of 1934." The main exhibit contains scanned images of newspaper headlines and articles, photographs, and other artifacts from the two strikes. Descriptions, stories, quotes, and excerpts accompany each item's thumbnail image. Enlarge the images by clicking on them in order to see the details. Other resources on this Website include a short article about the Canadian experience in the strike of 1919, a brief bibliography, and an annotated links page that covers information about the Seattle General Strike of 1919, the 1934 Longshoremen's Strike, and a couple of general sites about labor history.
