 Finding Aid

St. Louis German bakers sent delegates to the first national meeting of bakers in Pittsburgh in February 1886 and received a charters as No. 15. The local supported the eight-hour movement and helped organize the Central Trades and Labor Union. Rivalry with the English-speaking local was resolved in 1906 when both united as Local No. 4. The collection includes executive board membership and social club minutes, financial records, and membership lists. Some volumes are in German.
