Title: Report of Operative #115
Date: 1914 June 21
Description: In this report, an operative reports that the policy of labor organizers Sara Conboy, Ola Delight Smith, and Charles A. Miles is "to keep up agitation, by any means; to gain sympathy of [the] general public; to keep employees in good spirits, by 'jollying' them; to get support of City Officials by picturing filthy and unhealthy conditions of mills, hoping to get an investigation."

The Fulton Bag and Cotton Mills Exhibit is a joint project between the Georgia Tech Library and Information Center's Archives and Records Management, Digital Initiatives, and Systems departments.
