This great resource is now being kept up to date as an online database, rather than a hard-copy book, thanks to Aliqae Geraci, Cornell ILR Research Librarian. Here is the URL: http://guides.library.cornell.edu/c.php?g=32362&p=203853


We Were There

Bev Grant has been the cultural director of the NE Regional Summer School for the past 17 years or so. Each year we present a women's labor history show called We Were There for which Bev composed a theme song of the same name back in 1994. She has been performing the show outside of the school and donating a portion of the profit to our scholarship committee. Last summer, she made a music video out of the song, using images from the show. She is now writing a brochure and citing the history of its existence.
