IAMAW Local 609 Photo, courtesy Greater New Haven Labor History Association Archives Joan Cavanagh, archivist/ director of the Greater New Haven Labor History Association, sent in the following call for participation in an upcoming exhibition.

Did you work at the Olin Winchester plant in New Haven? Would you like to share some or all of your experiences as a Winchester worker? If so, please contact the Greater New Haven Labor History Association sooner rather than later!
Although the plant closed in 2006, the stories of its workers throughout the 20th and early 21st centuries have yet to be told. The Labor History Association is putting together an exhibit based on oral histories, photographs and documents from the collection of the International Association of Machinists Local 609, which represented workers at the plant beginning in 1956. We would like to supplement these materials with other images and recollections from those who were involved with the plant and have stories to share about its impact on their lives and on the larger community.
The Connecticut Humanities Council has awarded a $6,000 grant to the Association to fund the digitization of images to be used in the exhibit. This planning part of the process needs to be completed by early November. If you have stories, photographs, artifacts or ideas to contribute, please .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call (203) 777-2756 x 2.
