In June of 2015, I recieved a box of files from Mary Manley. In this box of files contained two months of newspaper clippings of the famous labor strike of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in 1936. At the time of the Goodyear strike, an un-named employee had cut the articles out and paisted them into folders and made files of them. The files consist of two months of the strike, February and March of 1936. Mary had kept these files for many years and decided to give them to me when I showed a desire to create a blog out of them. Here's her e-mail:
"I am the owner/caretaker/babysitter of a collection of newspaper clippings and photographs from the 1936 United Rubber Workers strike against The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio. Most of them I believe to be from The Akron Times Press. The clips cover 2 months February through March. I was given them for safe keeping many years ago by a friend who did not know what to do with them but didn't want them thrown out.
I would like to find them a good home and your blog might be a good fit for them. I am willing to offer them to you free of course. Would you have an interest in creating a section in your vast blog with the articles? Let me know what you think.
