PETER BRENNAN. Photograph Mount inscribed and signed: "To Danny Franklin, With Best Wishes/Peter J Brennan, U.S. Sec'y of Labor", 10x13. Signed on lower edge of a mat enclosing a color photo (color, 8x10). A leader of New York City's building and construction workers, Brennan (1918-1990) gained prominence as an outspoken opponent of affirmative action in the building trades. When New York Mayor John Lindsay ordered city flags lowered after the shooting of anti-war students at Kent State University (May 1970), Brennan helped organize counter-demonstrations which became known as the "hard hat riots." He led a union delegation which presented a hard hat to President Nixon. After helping deliver a greatly increased share of the union vote in New York State to President Nixon in his re-election campaign, Brennan was named Secretary of Labor (1973-1975). Fine condition.
