Hamba kahle, John Bennett. John was one of the posse of graduate student labor historians around David Montgomery at the University of Pittsburgh in the mid-1970s, along with ESFL's Peter Rachleff. ESFL has a copy of John's PhD. dissertation, THE IRON WORKERS OF WOODS RUN, about late 19th century iron and steel workers on the north side of Pittsburgh. The labor movement was John's life, before, during, and after his stint in graduate school.
