The Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) went through a period of change and growth
during the tenure of George T. Guernsey as Associate Director of Education from 1945–1955.
Two important events took place when the Taft-Harley Act was enacted in 1947 and the CIO
merged with the American Federation of Labor in 1955 to from the AFL-CIO.

Department of Education and Research Records reflect its efforts during this seminal
period and beyond, to not only educate, inform, and inspire CIO members, but to act as an
advocate for education in the American political arena. CIO summer schools, conferences, education advocacy activities, and member education materials are well documented.
