Henry Miller, who died more than 110-years ago, was the founder, first president and driving force behind the first union of electrical workers in North America the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

Despite the key role he played in the history of the IBEW and the early labor movement, little is known about Millers life and career.

This short film from the IBEW Media Department sheds some light on the life and times of Brother Miller and the dawn of the IBEW.

2. Thanks Omaha Steve...

... I enjoy...well, I love history. And especially Labor History. Genealogy is one of my hobbies. too. Will see what more I can find out about Henry Miller and come back here and post it. That is a great birthday greeting with his face superimposed in the wires.
