Photograph Signed: "L Walesa" in blue ink. 8x10. B/w. Lech Walesa (b. 1934) won the 1983 Nobel Peace Prize for his contribution "to insure the workers right to establish their own organizations", served as President of Poland from 1990-1995. He had been an electrician in the Lenin Shipyard in Gdánsk, where he was active in union organizing for several years. In 1980, he was the co-founder and Chairman of the National Co-Ordinated Committee of Independent Free Trade Union Solidarnosc (Solidarity). The national union received unprecedented concessions from the Polish government until the union was suspended in 1981. During the 1988 labor unrest, Walesa negotiated with the government, agreeing to persuade workers to return to their jobs in exchange for talks on legalizing Solidarity. On April 5, 1989, an accord was reached between the government and opposition factions on a broad range of political and economic reforms, including free elections. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
