The lecture is entitled “Representation and Rebellion: The Rockefeller Plan at the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company, 1914-1942.” Here’s a description:
The CFI Company instituted the Rockefeller Plan at its mines and steel mill after the infamous Ludlow Massacre of 1914. This plan, which would be referred to today as a company union, was supposed to bring peace and prosperity to the firm. Professor Jonathan Rees will explain the strengths and weaknesses of this experiment in labor relations.
Jonathan is an expert on the history of American industrialization during this period, and is an outstandingly interesting scholar and writer. I hope history folks from UCCS will be able to attend!
