Press Associates, Inc., originally called Press Associates—PAI, was organized in June, 1954 in Washington, D. C. as an independent news, feature, and photo service for the American labor press under the direction of veteran newspaperman Alexander Uhl and labor journalist Harry Conn. It drew heavily upon the resources of the Public Affairs Institute (PAI), a nonprofit research and information agency founded in 1947 and largely supported by the nation’s labor unions.
