Western Federation of Miners: Calumet-Hecla Strike Records
Collection — Box: Small Processed Collections: W-Z, Box 15, Folder: 6
Scope and Content
The Western Federation of Miners: Calumet-Hecla Strike Collection consists of photocopies of correspondence between Edward F. LeGendre, a lawyer from Laurium, Michigan, and A. W. Kerr, chief counsel to District 12 of the United Mine Workers of America, and WFM president, Charles Moyer. Both attorneys were hired by the Federation to represent miners in the Calumet-Hecla strike in Michigan's copper country and much of the correspondence relates to their efforts to get paid for their services, although it does contain some information about individual cases and the Federation's financial and administrative problems.
