Scope and Content of the Records

The Records, 1887-1970, of Carpenters Local 144 (Macon, Georgia) consist of minutes, correspondence, financial documents and printed material. The collection, which includes the original minutes of the founding of the local in 1887, bulks in the 1940s and 1950s.

The correspondence and minutes discuss apprentice programs, contract negotiations, wage predeterminations and other local union activities.
