A group of thirty men met to organize the Columbia Typographical Society in Washington, D.C. in December of 1814. In 1867 they joined the newly-formed National Typographical Union (later, the International Typographical Union) as Columbia Typographical Union No. 101, representing workers at The Washington Post, Times-Herald, and Evening Star. Columbia Typographical Union No. 101 is now the oldest continuously existing labor union local in the United States. The records of the Columbia Typographical Union No. 101 consist of minutes, correspondence, committee reports, clippings, grievance and contract negotiations files dating from its founding.
