Back cover copy

This fourth volume of the Samuel Gompers Papers begins just after the close of the AFL's 1894 Denver convention. Covering a significant four-year period in the history of the United States-from the depths of economic depression to the Spanish-American War- this volume of the Samuel Gompers Papers explores the AFL's continued growth as an institution, illuminates the fierce struggle for power that accompanied that growth, and documents Samuel Gompers' role as leader of the federation.show more
