Abstract

Region 1A was formed in 1942 and included the west side of Detroit, as well as Monroe, Washtenaw and a portion of Oakland County. Some of the material in this collection also relates to Region 1, which covered the east side of Detroit and the remainder of Oakland County. These two regions, during the period covered by this collection, had more members than any other UAW region and were administered by two co-directors. Later they were each divided into two separate regions.

Arrangement

The scrapbooks in Series 3 are arranged chronologically.

Acquisition

The records of Region 1A were placed in the Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs in May 1967. In August 1979 nine scrapbooks were placed in the Archives by Ed Grant.
