Scope and Content
Through the efforts of Burton Barnard, Field Representative of the Ohio
Labor History Project, and Roger Meade, Director of the Ohio Labor History
Project, the Kent State University Archives obtained the records of the
International Association of Machinists (I.A.M.), Local 200, from the union
recording-secretary John Kaglic. On July 12 and 25, 1979, the records were
delivered to the Archives.
Local 200 is a craft union associated with the American Federation of
Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (A.F.L.-C.I.O.). The members
of Local 200 have been employed at the Youngstown Foundry and Machine Company,
Boardman Street Roll Turning Shop in Youngstown, Ohio.
The materials in this collection includes records covering the years
1934 to 1973 although the bulk of the material relates to the years 1944
- 1971. The collection includes correspondence, bylaws, contract agreements,
membership books and applications, minutes, receipts and disbursements,
and the official records of the Local, The folders titled official records
were delivered to the Archives so marked and contain financial reports,
stamp charge cards, receipts, monthly review statements, dues check-off
lists, bills, audit reports, grievance forms and nominations for local
officers. The records have been arranged into topical categories. These
categories include correspondence, both received and sent, memorandums
on employees, financial and official records, minutes, membership records
and applications, and agreements. All bound materials in the collection
have been placed in box two.
The contents of this collection, in its totality, reveal very little
about the founding and history of Local 200. However, if used in conjunction
with other Youngstown material and the records of Youngstown Foundry and
Machine Company, the documents offer the researcher valuable insight into
the concerns of organized labor on the local level., Also, the collection,
with its membership lists, membership applications and minutes, is of value
The Union has kindly agreed to dedicate both literary and property rights
to Special Collections and Archives.
