JACOB S. POTOFSKY
As President of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, the Jewish trade unionist signs a letter agreeing to contribute to a book on former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Extremely rare!
Typed letter signed: "Jacob S. Potofsky ", 1 page, 8½x11. New York City, New York, June 24, 1968. On his Presidential letterhead at the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America, to "Dear Mrs. Hershan" Stella K. Hershan, Forest Hills, New York, in full: "In reply to your recent letter regarding your book on Mrs. Roosevelt, she was an esteemed and much beloved friend of ours and I will be pleased to give you any information I can. If you will call my secretary, Miss Gitelson, she will arrange a convenient time for an appointment. With best wishes, I am, Sincerely yours.". Jacob Samuel Potofsky (1894-1979) was a Ukrainian born trade unionist, President of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America. The union, known for its support for "social unionism" and progressive political issues, was headed by labor leader Sidney Hillman who passed leadership roles on to Potofsky upon his death in 1946. Potofsky's work is most marked by his reconciliation of differences between unions and their employers during the largest labor movement in the history of the United States. Considered a "giant of the labor movement", he was one of the last survivors of the group of Jews from East Europe who helped build the American labor movement in the first half of the 20th century. Normal mailing folds. Binding holes at left edg. Creased and lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
