Frank Sgambato (1900-2002) was an organizer and officer in the United Textile Workers of America (UTWA) and a Rhode Island state senator. His scrapbooks, 1936-1952, document with newspaper clippings his work for the TWUA and American Federation of Labor as well as his early political career.
The collection contains materials related to attorney and union organizer Joseph Jacobs's work in the labor and civic community. Specifically, the papers cover his activities in the fields of labor, the Workmen's Circle (Arbeiter Ring), the Georgia Humanities Council and the Georgia Democratic Party.
Roy Groenert, former president of United Textile Workers Local 2563, was Director of Organization for the UTWA. Groenert's papers illuminate his interests in local union affairs, in organizing, and in the UTWA's suit which brought enforcement of the no-raid pacts signed after the merger of the AFL-CIO.
