Part 2 of the Nat Weinberg Collection relates to Mr. Weinberg’s work as director of the UAW’s Special Projects unit and to his work as a consultant to the United Nations on international economics and labor. Defense conversion, Democratic Socialism, the International Metalworkers Federation, International Fair Labor Standards, multinational corporations and The National Committee on Supplies and Shortages are among important subjects addressed in the collection.
