Scope and Content of the Collection

The Kuettner Collection consists principally of the Records, 1907-1916, of the Steam and Operating Engineers' Union Local 329, of Atlanta, Georgia. Though the financial and membership material comprises the bulk of these records, the correspondence, 1910-1916, describes the Union's involvement in local and state labor affairs, such as the textile workers strike of 1914, and local and state political situations involving Senator Hoke Smith, Georgia Governor Joe Brown, and political appointments. Included in the Kuettner Collection is a quantity of printed letters, minutes, and other documents, 1910-1916, from the International Steam and Operating Engineers Union. Form letters of the American Federation of Labor and the Georgia Federation of Labor, 1911-1916, and a few leaves of Kuettner's personal papers, 1902-1912, constitute the remainder of the Kuettner Collection.
