Public History

Tamiment/Wagner provides a resource to teach union members and the general public about the history of labor and progressive movements. It sponsors conferences, forums, exhibitions, anniversary displays, and has produced films and radio programs about the shared experiences of working men and women. New Yorkers at Work, an eight-part National Public radio documentary, was a Tamiment production, as were the video documentaries "Elizabeth Gurley Flynn: The Rebel Girl," and "They Were Not Silent: The Jewish Labor Movement and the Holocaust."

Marvin Miller Papers

The Library assists unions in surveying historical record, establishing archival and records management programs, organizing worker education programs, history projects, and exhibitions.


The editorial offices of Radical History Review and American Communist History are located at Tamiment.
