TitleMichael Donnelly addressing crowd
DescriptionCaption: "Michael Donnelly Addressing the Cattle Butchers." From text: " The coming, four years ago, of Michael Donnelly into the stock yards, made us conscious of a renaissance, that, owing to many forces not in evidence until he organized the workers, made them as well as ourselves conscious of their social value. Mr. Donnelly... secured his first dozen cattle butchers by house-to-house visiting, --'The wives who had suffered most in '94 often showed me the door, ' he said, but at last fifty men met on the prairie back of the yards, no two knowing the other was to be there. Then was organized the Cattle Butchers Union, the first of the 27 locals, which form the Packing Trades Council."
