AFL-CIO, Region 1, Office of Regional Director records

Identifier: MS-BC8


Regional office of the AFL-CIO, the national federation of labor unions formed by the merger of the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations in 1955. The regional directors are appointed by the president of the AFL-CIO to represent him by administering staff and regional organizations in carrying out the policies set forth by the national organization. Reorganization in 1974 redrew geographic regions, changing Region 14 (Illinois and Iowa) to Region 1 (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin).

Correspondence, constitutions, by-laws and records pertaining to Daniel J. Healy’s tenure as regional director (1955-ca. 1981). The material is organized alphabetically by geographic central labor unions, defunct central labor unions and directly affiliated local unions. The collection principally concerns Illinois unions, with a small amount related to unions in Iowa and Michigan.
