Historical Note

 

 

            Local 93 of the Operative Plasterers' and Cement Masons' International Association of the United States and Canada was organized in New Orleans on November 7, 1901.  Over the years the union's procedures and methods of record keeping have varied, and this, coupled with the disarrangement that occurred during periods of storage and transfer, resulted finally in a largely disordered body of records.  The series below were chosen as the most practical and useful means of organization, and in general they reflect the activities which produced them.

 

            Of interest to some scholars will be the knowledge that this union has been racially integrated from its inception, an uncommon phenomenon for the time and place.
