Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Joseph Antoine Labadie (April 18, 1850 - October 7, 1933) was an American labor organizer, anarchist, social activist, printer, publisher, essayist, and poet. Labadie was born on April 18, 1850, in Paw Paw, Michigan, to Anthony and Euphrosyne Labadie, both descendants of seventeenth century French immigrants of the Labadie family who had settled on both sides of the Detroit River. His boyhood was a frontier existence among Pottawatomi tribes in southern Michigan, where his father served as interpreter between Jesuit missionaries and Indians. His only formal schooling was a few months in a parochial school. Jo, as he was always called, began five years of "tramp" printing and then settled in Detroit as a printer for the Detroit Post and Tribune. He married his first cousin, Sophie Elizabeth Archambeau, in 1877. Their children were Laura, Charlotte, and Laurance, also a prominent anarchist essayist.show more
