Howard Hursey Papers

Accession Number: 
3 linear feet (3 SB)

Howard Hursey was a national representative for the American Federation of Teachers. This collection documents his time as an organizer from the 1960s through the early 1970s. The American Federation of Teachers experienced huge growth in membership during this time and the collection represents this and the strain on AFT workers. Mostly Hursey organized in the Southern United States, but there are materials from Los Angeles and Illinois and points in-between. The correspondences contain contracts, meeting minutes, reports, notes about organizing and issues facing various locals. There are also internal communications about organizing strategies, the growth of AFT, and the treatment of workers in the AFT which is reflected in the Committee for National Representatives.
