Ledger containing minutes form the meeting sof the Federation of Labor Temple Co. in Detroit c. 1920s-1940s.

14 x 9", gilt-ruled leather ledger with removable sheets made by the McMillan Book Co, Syracuse, NY, c. 1920s. Approx 290pp, covers worn, outer hinges starting, pp edge-toned, soiled, old yellowing cello-tape near end (some pp sticking due to this) else a useful interesting item. The Federation of Labor Temple was on East High Street (later E. Vernor Highway) north of downtown Detroit, and was later affiliated with the AFL. Mostly mundane meeting fodder (expenses, elections, etc) though one election for trustees (1923) was contested, and there was a special meeting (1925) "…called for the purpose of hearing complaints mad on the Bricklayer's Union" members for unruly behavior in the building. The Federation of Labor Temple moved c. 1941 to 82 West Montcalm. Nice look back at Detroit's labor scene. Sorry, no automotive union content until a loose list of tenants from 1941 listing the UAW on the 4th floor (mostly carpenters, brewery workers, fire fighters, machinists, painters, rock salt workers, etc)
