Description: 
Interviews conducted in 1972 in order to record the experiences of those persons who, in some way, contributed to the labour history of Thunder Bay. The tapes cover the social origins of each interviewee and then deals extensively with his working history, including working and living conditions, involvement in labour, political, ethnic and religious organizations, participation in demonstrations and strikes, and the effect of international and national events such as the two World Wars, the Great Depression and the Winnipeg General Strike. Some of the people interviewed had varying kinds of experiences relating to social and working conditions, but little or no relationship with trade unions.
