Series 3. Quarry Workers International Union
Collection consists of two types of record books: a day book for use by financial officers of union branches and shop stewards, and financial secretary’s records. The day books have monthly entries regarding union dues, and cover the years from 1914-1930. The financial secretary’s records are of two types. One set of three books includes minutes of union meetings and accounting of the local union’s finances. They cover the years 1920-1955. The second type has records on union members—their names, when they joined, and a record of dues payments, and covers the years 1908-1925.
