On the Inside of Democracy at Work



On the Inside of Democracy at Work


Article about Edward H. Lawson Jr. RC1933 in the Rutgers Alumni Monthly of December 1942, highlighting Lawson's work with the War Manpower Commission. Lawson investigates complaints of discrimination and unfair practice in industries because of color, creed or national origin, which is prohibited by President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Executive Order 8802. The article spanned more than one page, but only the first page was cut out and preserved in Lawson's alumni biographical file.
