    AMERICA, LOOK AND LIVE! by Helen W. Wood. An autobiography of her conversion from Communism to evangelical Christianity.

    SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the author on the first blank page: "Sincerely Yours / Helen Wood Birnie / John 15:13". (John 15:13 reads "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.") Helen Wood Birnie is Helen W. Wood's married name.

    Softcovers, booklet, side stapled, 5.5x8 inches, 77 pages.

    GOOD condition, some light soiling and signs of handling to the covers, otherwise tight, bright, clean and clear. A nice copy.

    Helen W. Wood was a lifelong white activist working to defend the rights and save the souls of African Americans. In the 1930s she was a Communist Party organizer. She converted to Christianity while working in the defense of an African American youth in Iowa charged with murder. The Iowa Communist Party opposed her work, but her efforts were supported by the local evangelicals. This began her conversion from Communism to Evangelical Christianity, a process completed in a Los Angeles skid row mission where she continued to work to better the lives of African Americans in need of help.

    Though an Anti-Communist tract, it is also an interesting autobiography that envisions evangelical Christians as people who would not tolerate racism (especially from a President).

    Scarce, especially so SIGNED.

It would look fabulous framed. A unique piece.

    A beautiful and evocative image that most perfectly embodies and describes the amazing ethos of the Haight Ashbury in 1967. Artist Mari Tepper (b. 1948) born in the Haight, she designed this poster when she was only 19 years old. Mari also created iconic concert posters for Bill Graham and many other SF cultural and sociopolitical happenings of the day, but because she was a young woman in 1967, her artwork was never popularized - unlike her male colleagues - until recently.

"Declassified" began with the occupation of the Applied Electronics Laboratories (AEL). Printed between April 10 and May 12, the first issue was called "Unclassified", with subsequent issues titled "Declassified". On April 3, 1969 Stanford University students formed a coalition to take action against Vietnam War related research at Stanford. Backing up their demands with more direct action, they seized the Applied Electronics Laboratory on April 9, vowing to hold it until the administration capitulated. This nine-day sit-in at AEL, known as "The April Third Movement" ultimately brought an end to Stanford's secret military research. The students turned the laboratory printshop into an underground press distributing "Declassified" and other sensational exposés on AEL and the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). They managed to hold out for nine days until Stanford's president threatened to suspend them. Stanford Electronics Laboratories (SEL), part of SRI, had been running CIA sponsored electronic communications and surveillance research and other classified war contracts for the armed services. The April Third Movement was part of a national youth movement on university campuses across America - the Stanford students were successful in eliminating classified research at Stanford and contributing to the protests that ended the Vietnam War. This Rare Original Document is in GOOD CONDITION: Complete as issued. Just light wear, and stiff vertical/horizontal creasing affecting all the pages, from having been folded into quarters, otherwise bright, clean, and unmarked.

    JUSTICE: International Ladies' Garment Workers Union. Volume 45, Issue 23, December 1, 1963. Published by the ILGWU, Jersey City, New Jersey, David Dubinsky President, Leon Stein Editor. Newspaper, 4 large leaves vertically folded into 8 pages, 16.5" x 11.5". Folded horizontally as issued. This original 1963 newspaper is in VERY GOOD CONDITION: small mailing label pasted to front page margin with penned number beneath, wear and small tears to the vertical fold but holding well, toning as normal and some light signs of age and use, otherwise tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A scarce JFK Memorial issue of this pioneering woman's labor union journal.

    This JFK Memorial Edition features a full page portrait of JFK with a black memorial border on the front page, inside, within a black memorial border is President Kennedy's Inaugural Address delivered on January 20, 1962 with a b&w photograph of him speaking from the White House balcony. This is followed by the text of JFK's speech before the Convention of the American Federation of Labor Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFLCIO) in New York City on November 15, 1963, also with a black memorial border and b&w photo of him speaking. The back page shows a b&w photo of LBJ and a Message of Support in his new role as President of the United States sent to him by union leader David Dubinsky.

    Founded in 1900, ILGWU was one of the largest and most significant labor unions in the American Labor Movement and one of the first with a primarily female membership. It's role in the history of women and immigrant Jewish and Italian women continues to be relevant today. Justice was published in English, Italian, Spanish, and Yiddish with much variation in content.

    ***** About the ILGWU from the Kheel Center for Labor Management Documentation and Archives Cornell University Library:

    The International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union was founded in New York City in 1900 by mostly Socialist immigrant workers who sought to unite the various crafts in the growing women's garment industry. The union soon reflected changes in the sector and rapidly organized thousands of unskilled and semi-skilled women, mostly Jewish and Italian young immigrants. Exemplifying the "new unionism," the ILGWU led two of the most widespread and best-known industrial strikes of the early Twentieth Century: the shirtwaist makers' strike of 1909 in New York City and the cloak makers' strike of 1910 in Chicago. The union also tried to adapt to the fragmented and unstable nature of the industry. It adopted the "protocol of peace," a system of industrial relations that attempted to ensure stability and limit strikes and production disruption by providing for an arbitration system to resolve disputes.

    The ILGWU exemplified the European-style social unionism of its founding members. They pursued bread and butter issues but provided educational opportunities, benefits, and social programs to union members as well. In 1919, the ILGWU became the first American union to negotiate an unemployment compensation fund that was contributed to by its employers. The ILGWU also pioneered in the establishment of an extremely progressive health care program for its members which included not only regional Union Health Centers but also a resort for union workers, known as Unity House. The Union also had an imaginative and pioneering Education Department which not only trained workers in traditional union techniques, but provided courses in citizenship and the English language.
