Photograph signed: "W. J. Usery Jr". Color, 8x10 overall, image 6x7¼, one surface. Born Willie Julian Usery in 1923, he is often misidentified as William, but prefers to be called Bill or W. J. Usery helped build Liberty Ships for the Navy during World War II. In 1952 he joined the International Association of Machinists, and soon proved a skilled labor organizer and mediator. He was the IAM's representative to the Kennedy Space Center, and became Assistant Secretary of Labor in the Nixon administration. After his mediation efforts helped avert some threatened strikes, and after drafting an executive order on union rules for the federal government, Usery was promoted in January 1974 to Special Assistant to the President for Labor-Management Affairs. He became Secretary of Labor in the final year of the Ford administration. Leaving government service, he formed his own labor relations consulting firm. President Clinton chose him in 1994 to mediate the Major League Baseball strike. Lightly creased, not visible head-on. Otherwise, fine condition.
