Collection Description
The Labor Studies Audio-Visual Collection is an artificial collection comprised of miscellaneous audiotapes, films, VHS tapes, and a few items in other formats. Most of the material has been collected for use in labor studies classes, conferences, seminars, and meetings by Rutgers University's School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR). The film and video portion of the collection consists mostly of material produced by unions or other filmmakers for educational use, but most of the audiotapes (and a few videotapes) are unique, consisting of oral history interviews, lectures, meetings, conference presentations, and labor songs. Oral history interviews are mostly dated 1988 and 1989 and are probably associated with a grant-funded project (or projects) carried out by Rutgers labor studies faculty and students. Some tapes are unlabeled, and in the absence of documentation it was not possible to identify all Newark-related materials.

Content of selected items that may be Newark-related is as follows:

In Box 7: a presentation by Irving Rosenberg, RWDSU (undated); and seminar on "Collective Bargaining and Librarians," with Bernard Shein of the Newark Public Library as Moderator (1972) [reel-to-reel audiotapes]

In Box 8: oral history interviews with Al Evanoff (1989), Joseph Magliacano, Furniture Workers Union (Newark?, 1989), Ed Pulver (1988), Henry Samek (1989), and Barbara Wicklund (1989); and a presentation by Irving Rosenberg, RWDSU [audiocassettes]

In Box 12: oral history interviews with Alan Howe, Pete Lamprakos, Joe Riordon, Ernest Weiss, and Barbara Wicklund [VH tapes, all labeled "Rutgers Labor Video Project," 1989]

NOTE: These materials are held at the Carey Library of Rutgers' School of Managment and Labor Relations.
