Pullman Strike in 1894


Students of history will remember the Pullman strike of 1894. This image is part of the employment record for Ralph Frame at the Pullman Car Company. There are several "O" in the entries for 1894, apparently indicating that Frame was not working during that time. This time period covers the time of the strike, which attracted national attention.
We'll be looking in more detail Ralph's records (and his father's) in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues which will include an actual copy of the employment records as illustrations.
Subscribe now and get in on the discovery.
