Photograph Signed: "Sincerely yours-/Wm Green President/American Federation of Labor". Sepia 11x14 photograph. A coal miner for 20 years, William Green (1873-1952) rose through the ranks of the United Mine Workers and the American Federation of Labor, succeeding AFL President Samuel Gompers in 1924. Serving until his death in 1952, Green advocated union/management cooperation and supported pegging wage increases to productivity increases, an unusual position for a labor leader. Earlier, as an Ohio State Senator, Green had secured passage of a model Workmen's Compensation Act (1911). Corners worn and creased. Lower right edge chipped. Poor contrast but still legible. 2 date stamps on verso- Dec 27,1939 and Jan -8,1940. Overall, fine condition.
