Abstract:

There is also a good deal of correspondence from political figures, including Presidents Truman, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon, congressmen, governors, and mayors, thanking Potofsky for support, inviting him to official functions, or soliciting his aid in their campaigns. Other correspondence deals with ACWA administrative matters, as well as with other labor organizations, including the International Labor Organization and the CIO.

Individuals represented in the collection include: Herman Badillo, Justice Arthur Goldberg; Hubert Humphrey; Lady Bird Johnson; Lyndon Johnson; Estes Kefauver; John F. Kennedy; Robert Kennedy; Herbert Lehman; John Lindsay; George McGovern; George Meany; Jawaharlal Nehru; Richard Nixon; Claude Pepper; Victor Reuther; Walter Reuther; Nelson Rockefeller; Adlai Stevenson; Harry Truman; and Harry Van Arsdale of the New York City Central Labor Council.

Major organizations represented include: Hart, Schaffner, and Marx; the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union; the International Textile and Garment Workers' Federation; the Jewish Daily Forward; the Jewish Labor Committee; the NAACP; and the various subordinate units of the ACWA.

Correspondence documenting Jacob Potofsky's tenure as president of the ACWU.

These two linear feet of correspondence are extremely fragmentary and represent the only surviving part of Potofsky's presidential correspondence. What remains is largely from the late (post 1960) period of Potofsky's tenure. It consists primarily of routine correspondence. Much of it is from charitable organizations, asking for financial support for their activities.
