|Title||MS 56 - International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen, Local 46|
The records of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen, Local 46, were donated to the Center for Archival Collections and transferred in August 1976, by Stephen P. Geitschier, Co-Director of the Ohio Labor History Project, with the cooperation of business agent Dale Mareches. The collection consists of one linear foot of minutes and financial records generated by Local 2 (Fostoria), Local 19 (Fremont), and Local 26 (Tiffin); locals which merged along with Local 37 (Sandusky) in 1975 to form Local 46 (Fremont).
The collection (1891-1975) includes minutes, financial records, a roll book, and a photograph of the Seventh Annual Ohio State Conference of Bricklayers (1912). 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, inventoried and processed the collection.
On February 1, 1975, Fostoria Local 2, Fremont Local 19, Sandusky Local 37, and Tiffin Local 26 merged to form the International Unioin of Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen, Local 46. Information and history of these locals currently is not available.
Local 46's business manager (1997) is Mr. Steve Shively, and the office is located at 1310 Siler Street, Fremont, Ohio.
|Scope and Content|
The International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen, Local 46, collection is comprised of the records from three of four locals which merged to form Local 46. Included in the collection are the minutes (1900-1919, 1929-1959, 1970-1975), membership records (1891-1900, 1914-1915, n.d.), and financial papers (n.d.) for Local 2; the minutes (1956-1968) and a financial ledger (1938-1957) for Local 26; and minutes (1947-1964) and a monthly report (January 1964) for Local 19. Also included in the collection is a photograph of the Seventh Annual Ohio State Conference of Bricklayers (1912).
The minutes of the locals provide information on the daily business of these unions and their relationships with other locals and state and national organizations. Some chronological gaps do occur, however, especially with Local 2, and the lack of minutes for Local 37 (Sandusky) result in weakening the overall strength of this collection.
