Response to Ken Burch (Reply #140)

Fri Sep 12, 2014, 07:45 PM

144. That's definitely where Harry picked up the term, as I believe he was involved with them earlier.

BTW, as an older lady I never got to join the ILWU myself but had relatives involved, including one who was Harry's West Coast business manager. Had a steel plate in his head from the Great Strike, etc. I was raised to believe and still do that anyone who crosses a picket line anywhere commits a mortal sin.

Two of my favorite pictures of Harry are of him as a young man shipping out for the States. He's barefoot on a wooden deck and in one picture has the wheel. You KNOW that was a lonnnng time ago!
