Louis B. Carrick Papers

Accession Number: 
.25 linear feet (1 MB)

Dr. Carrick, an aquatic biologist, served for a number of years on the staff of the
Environmental Protection Agency. In 1974, he was appointed principal reviewer of all environmental impact statements prepared in the Southeast under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. As a young man, he worked in the automotive industry in Detroit.

These papers contain an unpublished manuscript entitled “Auto Workers in Action: Labor Dynamics of the American Automobile Industry.” It covers the history of union organizing efforts in the Detroit auto industry in the early 20th Century. Louis B. Carrick wrote the manuscript (under the pseudonym Louis Burcar) with Joe Brown, and Benjamin Linsky. The original draft of the manuscript appears to have been completed in 1938 but it was never published. Duplicates were made in 1982 and this copy was deposited in the Reuther Library in 1983 under the condition that it not be opened for research until September 1988. The remainder of the papers contains some information about Dr. Carrick’s life and career.
