This work of selection and digitization, as well as the production of the content available on this portal, was primarily completed by James W. Rosenzweig. Important contributions were also made by the Labor Archivist, Conor Casey, and by the Digital Projects Coordinator for Special Collections, Kris Kinsey. Imaging assistance was provided by Reuben Dias, Wesley Nelson, and Murray Sampson.
Additional materials were drawn from pre-existing digital collections, including the Centralia Massacre Collection, the Civil Works Administration Photographs, the Everett Massacre Collection, the Federal Emergency Relief Administration Photographs, the Grand Coulee Dam Collection, the Vietnam War Era Ephemera Collection, and the WTO Seattle Collection.
