Kimberly Guise presents "Worker Wednesday: Newsletters of Higgins Industries"

70 years ago, Higgins Industries began publishing a newsletter for its workers, who would number 25,000 by 1943. Initially a monthly magazine entitled The Eureka News Bulletin, the company organ devolved into a weekly bulletin called The Higgins Worker. The papers were intended to inform, educate, stimulate production and build morale. Join Curator Kim Guise in turning the pages of these local labor gems.

Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Repeat on the third Wednesday of the month until 12/31/2013
