Joe Hill was a Swedish-American labor activist, songwriter and member of the I.W.W. While he was in Utah, he was convicted of murder in a controversial trial.

His ashes were placed in envelopes and mailed throughout the world to different people and labor organizations to scatter. Most organizations scattered them.
