(30879) Copper Country Strike, James O'Donnell, Strike Breaking, 1913

Street shot of James T. O’Donnell, employee of the New York-based Waddell & Mahon Detective Agency.

Hired by Sheriff James Cruise, O’Donnell supervised the "Waddell Men"- agents imported into the region as part of a "security force" to protect company property and scab workers. The group had a reputation for being particularly violent, successful strike breakers.
