A History of Labor in Columbus, Ohio 1812-1992 by Warren R Van Tine( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the building and printing industries flourished in pre-Civil War Columbus, manufacturing languished. The manufacturing base grew and diversified from 1820 to 1850. Few unions emerged, and those that did seldom lasted long. During the Civil War business and manufacturing increased to serve the camps and prisons established in Columbus. When the war ended, Columbus's workers launched the first concerted effort to build a labor movement. In August 1869 the arrival of the first train of the Hocking Valley Railroad introduced a new chapter in the city's industrial history. By World War I, industry had migrated out of the downtown area. Workers were excluded from a major say in city affairs, confined to overcrowded and inadequately served neighborhoods, and trapped in low-paying, dirty, demanding jobs. The characteristic pattern of the labor movement until the 1930s emerged: workers unionized during prosperity and retreated with recessions. World War I stimulated the economy; peace brought a depression. But because of the city's diverse economic base, it did not feel the depression as severely as other locations; nor did it experience the prosperity of the 1920s to the same degree as other communities; hence, increasingly, the word "moderate" described all national trends as they applied to Columbus. World War ii had the greatest impact upon Columbus's labor movement. Public employment doubled, and the manufacturing sector expanded dramatically. Curtiss-Wright's air force factory work force was unionized shortly after it began production in 1941. For the past 2 decades, the challenge for organized labor in central Ohio has been to launch new initiatives in the face of a dramatically changing social and economic environment.

Mayoral politics and new deal political culture : James Rhodes and the African-American voting bloc in Columbus, Ohio, 1943-1951 by William Russell Coil( )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This thesis discusses the impact of New Deal political culture on Columbus, Ohio in the 1940s. The case study involves the political relationship of James Rhodes, Republican mayor of Columbus from 1944 - 1952, and the African-American voting bloc. This study finds that Rhodes' political style and policy agenda converged with the interests and methods of the black community, facilitating a mutually beneficial alliance. Both Rhodes and blacks advocated policies that centered on themes of strengthening the home and the community and embraced New Deal political culture, a style based on pluralism and organizational activity. This story is useful to tell because it suggests that the shift in black voter's loyalty from the party of Lincoln to the party of Franklin Roosevelt occurred neither uniformly nor monolithically, foreshadows changes that occur in the Republican party because of the New Deal, describes a convergence of long term structural patterns with distinct personalities and ideologies that created a fleeting moment of middle ground between blacks and whites, and, finally, illustrates the limits of local public power to address systemic racial problems

To save the land and people : a history of opposition to surface coal mining in Appalachia by Chad Montrie( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study traces the rise and fall of a movement to abolish coal surface mining in Appalachia during the twentieth century. It begins with natural and social histories of the region and examines the development of a strip mining industry, the emergence of state-level demands for regulatory legislation and a ban, the shift of the campaign to the federal level, and the collapse of the opposition movement. The significance of the research is threefold. First, it contributes to the development of social environmental history as a subfield by focusing on common people and the interplay between social relations and the environment. The dissertation also reveals the importance of a tradition of veneration for small, private property in shaping political consciousness and social conflict in the United States. Finally, it reveals inhabitants of Appalachia as capable of using a socially constructed identity developed by local color writers, missionaries, and settlement workers as an ideology for contemporary struggle
Getting a job and changing an image : African-Americans in the advertising industry, 1920-1975 by Jason P Chambers( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

African-Americans in the advertising industry stood at the center of the definition of the black consumer and, therefore, actively participated in the construction of black consumer identity. Consequently, given the role of consumption in identity formation, African-Americans in the advertising industry have been important and overlooked contributors to the formation of African-Americans individual and group identity. Through an examination of the construction of the African-American consumer by advertising professionals, this work helps broaden the understanding of black identity formation. This study also enhances the understanding of consumer culture through a discussion of the impact of race on consumption and on the formation of the consumer society. There are four major components to this work. The first is a discussion of how blacks utilized the developing interest in the black middle class as a consumer segment to gain access to greater levels of participation in the advertising industry. The second is to examine the changing perception of the black consumer market among those in the advertising industry. Third, I analyze how changes in the institutional culture of the advertising industry led to employment opportunities for blacks. Finally, I show how blacks, once they achieved some level of decision-making in the industry, used their positions to present what they believed to be an authentic, non-stereotypical vision of African American life via advertisements

"The wrongs that are born and suffered in silence" : sexual assault and legal fraternity in nineteenth century Ohio by Siri Briggs Brown( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study is an examination of the socio-legal dynamics surrounding the charge and prosecution of rape and other sex crimes in nineteenth-century Ohio's legal fraternity. The goal is to document the impact of gender and race assumptions upon the women who brought forth charges, the structure and power of the male dominated legal system, changing definitions of the crime, rules of evidence, the experiences of women in court, state supreme court decisions on sexually related crimes, the prosecution, sentencing, and release rate of offenders, and the impact of the efforts of moral reformers and individual women who desired to create more protective legislation. The numerous legal documents cases, and statutes examined are contextualized within broader social, political, and economic forces at work throughout the century that influenced the developing legal system in the emerging state of Ohio in ways that affected the experiences of both men and women in court. As the nation entered the “market revolution” the basic function of law transformed. In colonial America the primary emphasis of law was the protection of morality, by the early nineteenth century, however, the primary emphasis of law became the protection of property, goods, and capital gain. The prosecution of rape, once considered a moral crime deserving severe punishment now lost prosecutorial precedence to economically based crimes like theft, burglary and forgery. In the newly admitted state of Ohio (1803) this shift in the function of law began early in the state's history and continued until well into the 1800s. What complicated matters were the severely overcrowded state penitentiary and saturated court system. The result was the early release of convicted offenders, and a legal system that was forced to decide what crimes were the most important to prosecute, and ensure proper punishment. Rape, a crime suffered primarily by women but defined, judged and sentenced by male legal authority lost importance throughout the course of this dynamic century. Punishments for rape were reduced, convicted sex offenders were pardoned at a higher rate than other offenders, and state Supreme Court Justices overturned convictions made in the lower courts. By the end of the century, however, issues of morality and the legal protection of women reemerged by the efforts of moral reformers and new legislation was written. Within this context, what at first appears to be a very intimate crime between two (or more) individuals results in a very complex interaction involving litigants, juries, witnesses, courtroom officials, high-level state officials, and the local community who anxiously came to view the drama at hand
