Accession Number: 
17 linear feet, (16 SB, 3 OS)

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) was first formed in St. Louis in 1891. It grew rapidly in the ensuing years, with Detroit Local 58 forming in 1914, amidst the rapid growth of automotive factories in the region.

This collection consists primarily of materials generated by Local 58, along with other local unions with which it has amalgamated. Materials include photographs, meeting minutes, dues books, financial records, and other administrative documents. Also included are digital files, as well as materials generated by the International Organization – including convention proceeding books and copies of their periodical journal, the Electrical Worker’s Journal.
