New episode is available in the Hagley History Hangout—Dr. Kevin Tennent discusses with Gregory Hargreaves, Programming Officer at the Center, his recent research at Hagley, funded by one of our grants. Dr. Tennent, Senior Lecturer at the University of York School of Management, used Hagley materials in his research on American industrial democracy between 1913 and 1935. Dr. Tennent’s research seeks to further our understanding of labor representation within industrial concerns, to determine how democratic institutions functions within American business of the period, and to investigate their relationship with organized labor unions and the relative empowerment of employees.
