Images in this exhibit are all taken from the International Longshore and Warehouse Union's 86 page anniversary publication "The ILWU Story, Six Decades of Militant Unionism," published by the union in 1997, with text and research by Eugene Dennis Vrana.

This informative book includes excerpts from oral history interviews; much of the information is also presented on the ILWU website.
