|Title||MS 37 - Lima Building Trades Council (Lima, Ohio)|
The Lima Building Trades Council collection was transferred to the Center for Archival Collections on June 20, 1977, by Stephen P. Gietschier, Co-Director of the Ohio Labor History Project, with the cooperation of Robert Wallace. The records include the minutes of regular and executive board meetings, correspondence, financial statements, labor agreements, and wage scales for the years 1937 to 1966, with the bulk of the material specifically covering the period 1940 to 1961.
Literary and property rights have been dedicated to the public and duplication is permitted for the purposes of preservation and scholarly research. Joanne Passet, a graduate assistant employed by the Ohio Labor History Project, processed the collection and compiled the register.
Materials documenting the history of the Lima Building Trades Council currently are not available. The Council's office is located (1997) at 4580 S. Dixie Hwy--P.O. Box 1525, Lima, Ohio 45802-1525. Mr. Dave Smith serves as President.
